Sailing away from me

This is a place, this blog of mine, where I say what delights me, interests me, moves me.
A dear friend came to visit me from very far away.
Now he has returned to his own land and the full life he has created there.
I also return to mine.
But he has sailed away and I am feeling sad today.
The day after.

Summer colors!

After being without a finch feeder for some years, and having racoons get to the one I used to have and pull it down and eat all the contents, I got this one!
I have hung it high enough (I hope) to keep them from reaching it,
and for the visual delight of seeing these brilliant feathered friends use it!

A student gift for me!

This little guy is just over an inch tall!
He is a gift brought to me all the way from Bolivia by a student of mine who
has just visited her home country!
She saw it in a market (she has good eyes to spot something so tiny!) and
thought of me.
Now that is special.
Very special.
I glued him onto this block that has a piece of one of my watercolors.
If you click on the image you will see it bigger!
Cool, huh?
