Sleepytime Rain 12 X 12 mixed media for Take a Word
I love naps and listening to the rain on my screen porch.
I drink coffee, wine, and whole milk.
I have sons that play me songs, bring birthday picnics, and share my art on their Facebook pages.
I teach American literature to students with learning disabilities.
and I never read the newspaper.
I love ballet, Fall, and girlfriends who always show up.
I have a husband who bakes me cookies and scrambles my eggs.
I listen to Al Green, Emmy Lou Harris, and frogs.
I'm as loyal as a dog and loose as a goose.
I'm organized but absent-minded.
I don't believe in ghosts, bad manners, or holding a grudge.
I like to drive at night with the music up and the windows down.
I dream about seashells, flying, and my grandmother's house.
I collect broken jewelry and scraps of paper.
I need to know why, and I hate to hear no .
I wear high heels, flip flops, and running shoes.
I dread change, but I often seem to seek it.
I love rituals, and I hate routines
I look for lightening bugs, lucky rocks, and little people.
I like swimming in cold water and getting in hot cars.
I eat slowly, walk fast, and get up early.
I believe in forgiveness, singing along with the radio, and that George was the best Beatle.
I never meet a stranger, and I hate to say goodbye.
