Loveletterist,

Are you writing the final part by hand? In hieroglyphs? ru!

The current of creativity coursing through your being on this warm day bedazzles! Planter planting, ‘glyphing, and paddling. Oh my!

Perhaps just the fact that sunrise for you is an hour and nineteen minutes earlier than in my neck of the woods. Perhaps “bark-howl-bark-bark-bark” roused you from a deep sleep in the pre-dawn hours. 🤷🏽

May the Force be with you! 😁

Not by hand. Not hieroglyphs. But! I finally have an idea for the final vignette -- and it came with a PERFECT title -- which might also make a fantastic title for the book?!

Was I unclear? I was TRYING to convey that as part of my personal reinvention, I have given up some domestic pursuits to make room for the new. I am not planting pots this year.

I couldn’t make out the “words” in the image, hence my glyph comment. Nia’s remark left room for cramming in a few marigolds in last year’s soil. Hardy. Easy planting. Low water demands. Not very tasty to deer or bunnies. 🤷🏽 (your wording did suggest jettisoning planters, but “we don’t need no stinking planters” would have worked well, too)

“ur bait stop” may be the words on the sketch. The swim attire is recognizable. But do you need bait to catch the paddle board? 🤔🙂

Who doesn’t love a good mystery/puzzle?!

Bait certainly works for fish as my kid has taught me. You should see the Swing Ned he invented! It caught me!

The words are we.don’t.stop. — From a love letter in the recent past. I’m all about this image connection through lit paper these days. A phase? 😂

"Reinvention is a core competency.”

I can hang with that. 😊

I remember who gifted me the phrase. I wonder if her was the originator or if he nicked it from somebody else. 🤔

It’s a good one.
