I’ve combined a watercolor painting I created when I was a little girl with The Desiderata poem. Enjoy!

When I was a little girl in kindergarten, one of my earliest memories is my teacher asking all of us what we thought the moon was made of. I boldly exclaimed “Swiss cheese”!! And everyone started cracking up. It wasn’t because I thought that our lunar orb was a stinky hunk of fermented milk. I simply loved to make people laugh. Mission accomplished. 🙂
As I make my way around Casey Key, FL right now on foot, I have started collecting these interesting little rocks. Their shapes and holes remind me of Swiss cheese and I was taken back to my childhood and that warm feeling that comes from giving others delight.
I am not sure why these rocks have so many holes and impressions, but they are so interesting to look at and feel. The surface is so smooth. Our ocean is amazing….
Be back soon!

There is something so carefree about being on a bike. I grew up riding around my neighborhood on Siesta Key, Florida. I love bicycling and do it often. I recently purchased a new beach cruiser in a nice cream color with a brown leather saddle seat. It is so comfortable and easy to ride. The picture here is not my bike. I was at Lido Beach this past weekend and while walking along the shoreline, I came across this beauty. No lock. No owner anywhere. Just sitting there as if it was placed there from a different time….a memory….a ghost asking me “Remember when?”

Walking along Lido Beach with my husband waiting for that last glimmer of light, I see some children playing in the surf. Two little girls and one boy squealing with joy as the waves splashed at their backs. Parents were chatting and pointing at the horizon. This guy was a whir of activity with limbs going every which way and toys thrown about. He payed no attention to people passing by. Then for a split second….just a small moment, he stops and looks at the setting sun as if to say……not yet…I am still having fun. I cannot believe I captured this….
