Great White Egret
During times of sorrow, beauty is a source of consolation.
I began watching birds, in an informal way, when we lived in Illinois years ago. I still remember the autumn colors outside the hospital window, during my mom’s last illness here in Wisconsin.
The kindness of others is something I treasure. A note, that may have taken a moment for someone to write, transformed my day. These cards from over the years are in a covered glass dish from my mother, on a bookshelf from my father. I save and treasure kind emails as well.
Blogs give me the same good feeling of support – this genre of creativity fits with my life so well. Short posts over time add up to a lot. I admire how so many people simply begin, and practice, and grow their work. Many ways to grow.
