Ah! The question of the young child. The curiosity that overwhelms them. The newness of it all. To look at the world as a young child is a gift. This post is inspired by a friend's blog question. What's that - a drawing challenge. She is an artist. I have known her for at least forty years. We met in high school. We were roommates years upon years ago. She is a talented artist. She has the greatest laugh. Check out her blog here carolereidartist.
I am an artist too. But it is different. I knit, I photograph, I write. Sometimes I paint, and sometimes I like what I paint, but not always. It is getting better in that regard. But mostly I write.
That is a fuchsia. I am growing these in a planter on my backporch. The hummingbirds love it. And, well, hummingbirds and I have a connection.
So that was the plan for this post, those three things.
And then this showed up last night at my house.
It was the garter I wore on my wedding day...."something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue". Our best man caught it. Thirty-seven years later he showed up at our house for dinner and ta-da! He had found it while moving. Imagine. It looks like new.
And Carole was at our wedding too.
It seems perfect to answer her blog challenge with that garter.
It is the beginning of a story still being written.
