Weeing, wellies and words

Three addendums:
First, the poem-stone which goes with these pictures. Rest assured, there are no photos of me weeing - it's not that sort of blog. (If it was, I'd probably have more followers.)


Weeing in grass by starlight,
friends' faces circling a fire;
familiar and reassuring:
this is the life I choose.
Second, as promised to Lyra (whose blog I heartily recommend to you), a close-up of my most recently completed artwork:
Brush pen on canvas board
10" x 12"

Still not easy to read, I know. Trees ask a little patience before they give up their words. For the full image, see here.

And third, I can't believe I forgot to tell you how childishly pleased I am to own welly boots with my name on:

(One of Thomas's pixie doors in the background.)

May you all share the peace of my snoring husband and daughter :o).


  1. Delightful :o) I LOVE the part about trees asking for patience before they give up their words .. I think if that sentence you wrote turned into fruit it would be ruby-like pomegranates - crunchy and bursting with flavour in my mouth :o)

    Love your wellies too! Wish I had some .. can never understand why, living in a tropical country known for its rain (and slush!) no one wears wellies here. Very strange. Perhaps I must start the trend.

  2. Those wellies would look even better a bit scuffed - I'm sure you'll manage to get them that way soon!

  3. We love trees! It's not at all uncommon for my little one and me to hug them. (: The word that sticks out on your artwork is "Freedom." I like that. Blessings to you!

  4. Thanks Nazneen. Loving your poem-fruit. And I definitely recomend wellies - so easy to kick off and slip on.
    Patsy, they'll soon look like I've had them for ages.
    Grooovygirl, I'm so pleased other people hug trees too, and it's not entirely an accident that ;freedom' is central. Thank you.

  5. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. How I adore that tree.
    I went to a beer festival this weekend and myself and three gentlemen walked around the three large tents numerous times because there was a microbrewery named Lunar that I had to get a picture of for you.
    Alas, they bailed because they were nowhere to be found.
    My husband and two friends were more than heppy to help me look as we drank our way around numerous times...

  6. Lyra, I'm so touched you thought of me. And very excited to have an eponymous microbrewery :o). And my tanks to your companions who slogged through all that beer in my name. (@Tanks' should have been 'thanks', but it's maybe more appropriate this way.)

  7. I’m nοt that much of a online

    It's in fact very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I only use web for that purpose, and get the most recent news.
