“Campground Quest For A Bathroom” – A Watercolor

Hello, and Happy March! How has your day been going? I decided a few days ago to get back into watercoloring, so I picked a favorite photo out of my album and got to work. Dad took the photo in 2014, when we were on one of our camping-in-a-tent family adventures. Anna and I were in need of a restroom, (which is where the name of my painting materialized from) and […]

Iced Raspberry Green Tea and How To Make It

Howdy, there! How has your day been? It’s a balmy 80 degrees here in South Carolina. Since I’m sitting here in shorts on this February day, I thought a post on iced tea would be apropos. I just discovered this delectable drink yesterday, and the great news is (if it’s late in the afternoon), de-caffeinated green tea works just as well!

A Rainfall

Hello, and Happy February First! How is your week going? Today I have a poem written long ago. Well, about eight months ago, at least.

Gold Dust – A Poem

Last week, I posted a poem by Emily Dickinson called “Hope.” I went on to create some poems of my own, one of which I would love to share with you today! Since poetry is even better read aloud, I made a recording of the poem as well. I hope you enjoy it, and may it give rise to deep thoughts and poetry of your own!

“Hope” By Emily Dickinson

Howdy, I hope you’re having a wonderful week! I just came across this poem by Emily Dickinson (literally about three minutes ago). I fell in love with it, and wanted to share it with you! (It’s even better if you read it out loud!)

“A Lifetime and the Notes It Played” Short Story

Micah, Anna and I were playing piano. It was a game that I had played with my teacher, where someone tells you a word or scene, and you try to impart that emotion by creating music to describe it. After a while, we were flushed with triumph and enthusiastic at our musical success. “You should write a book about someone who remembers something important in her life every time she plays […]
