Right Now - All Day - I'm attending a live-stream event . . .

 I have a sketchbook in front of me
My favorite - 'out of ink' - lavender-black ink - pen
During 'lunch break'
I got out those 'crazy pencils.'

Being Comforted, Educated, Inspired

Sailing w/Crazy Pencils

There's a crazy idea waaaay back in my imagination.
I don't guess it's getting any closer to a full fledged idea.
I simply continue to draw something every day.

These days - Everything has  changed
as Marie Kondo suggests - 
I'll continue to look for whatever "Sparks Joy."

Here's a little sketch
I used my favorite lavender black pen
(which looks as if it's already out of ink, but still continues to draw with me.)

See, each pencil in the set has three colors mixed in the lead.
(Makes me laugh really hard.  
The day I discovered them at Artmart
I made a worker come play with me.
 They are wacky different.)

so - sailing w/crazy pencils.

George Washington Carver

"I was born in Diamond Grove, Missouri, about the close of the Great Civil War in a little one room shanty in the home of Mr. Moses Carver.  When I was just a mere tot . . . I literally lived in the woods.  I wanted to know every strange stone, flower, insect, bird or beast."
-George Washington Carver-

Far side of The Garden is a special place 
provided by contributions from large corporations.
In Primary Education
we were taught a LOT about 
George Washington Carver.
California was Farmer oriented then
and George Washington Carver was 
I started thinking about this post some time ago,
Today I received a terrific, in-depth article 
On George Washington Carver
So, I'll give you the link and follow the little path home.

love & love,

Last Friday of June 🙂

 This was a real thing.
Made out of plates.  Part of an exhibit in The Garden some years ago.
I liked it a lot.
Noticed my photo
decided to try sketching.

While Waiting . . .

I was excited.
Ready well before time.
 for a special live-stream event to begin. 
I'm learning to sketch.
So, I started to scribble in my notebook.
There she is . . . "waiting" with me.

The event was Brilliant!
One teacher in California.
There was a crowd squished together inside the meeting room
on the lawn outside the building - watching on a jumbo screen.
There was also a media truck
making sure everyone who wanted to attend - would be able.

Our other teacher was in the Galilee, Israel.
Which also means, he was speaking to us from "tomorrow."

I'm in Missouri, USA
So excited, I gathered early - at my desktop -
scribbling while waiting
to join with friends I have not - yet- met . . .
across the world - across time zones.

And, now I share with you.
This entire idea/opportunity/new way we are able to connect -
Amazes me.

love & love,

Dixieland Singalong . . . .

                               Someone was kind enough to share this Vintage Las Vegas Photo.
I noticed the bottom marque.
I don't remember Him playing the Silver Slipper
Perhaps THIS explains
audiences sang along with me for years
