Fresh from their morning stroll, Cal, Tal, and Nia studied Drawist’s three whimsical cat attempts from yesterday. “Hmmm…” Calliope brought her nose close to each drawing. “Number one — baby wolf — let’s toss it. Not all practice is presentable.” Thalia and Urania nodded their agreement.
What a lovely bear cub🧸. Fresh day. Fresh look. Fresh perspective.
LILACS!!!! Oh how I miss them. I tried growing them down here but it is too hot for them. Once when my husband and I were driving from Minneapolis to Alanson, MI we got to see a mama bear and her cubs. We were crossing across Wisconsin. Mama was standing just off the road in the woods and her cubs were huddled on a downed tree limb near her. We didn't stop because they didn't seem to be waiting to cross. We didn't want to scare them. They had probably just crossed the road shortly before we got there. I believe it was also the trip I got to see my first Bald Eagle. Oh and last night the fireflies were out. I love seeing their little flashes as they fly around.
This is one of my favorite Oscar Wilde quotes, thanks for sharing it with us!
“Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.”
I have recently, just yesterday, been inspired by this idea of the way my senses are interpreting the idea of impermanent earth art. Imagine using what is naturally around us to create something magical, whimsical, beautiful 🤩!
I hope you are as inspired and fascinated as I am… I wonder if bear cubs have an appreciation for #Art? Can you imagine a bear cub self portrait? Maybe not…
I got a kick out of the bear in the red canoe 😊
I hope the absence of Bark! Howl! is a sign of maturation. Progress, not perfection. If I could offer a thought/question: it seems this stage of the bear cub has whiskers. Cat-like? Is the intent to carry that whiskery theme across all species? Whimsically? Purposefully? Artistic license? Admittedly I am often fact-bound. 🤓
Cal woke up on the critical side of the bed today, it seemed to me. Quick to weigh in with her assessments. Not like her. I hope the day’s rain hasn’t put her in a grumpy mood! Then again, Everything can be this, Everything can be that. CURE!
Sign: “COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS, not your worries” 😁
Typist could have written that! Paintest could have crafted it! Cal could have pointed out what was wrong with it!
Wisteria grows abundantly down here but doesn't have the wonderful smell of lilacs. It is invasive too. Then we have mimosa and bottlebrush plants. No smell to them either.
