“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  41. I so admire your talent and your ability to memorize visual detail in your brain. I have to have something to look at in order to creat it and then it still does't look real. My Mother and sister were both wonderful artists ... and then there was me:( A lovely picture of the gorgeous wood duck. We have them around here every spring and summer so I can aprreciate why you would love to see them again in real life. I am sure they are probably down there more this time of year because they sure aren't here, Ha! Good luck on your search. Love your post ... always love your posts. It is such a pleasure when I have the time to stop by. Sorry about your Brother-in- law. Losing someone close is very painful ... mainly because you care so much. In time you can focus on all the wonderful memories that will stay with you forever. Be well, Annie ...

  42. Oh, Anni. I am so sorry for the loss of your brother in law. After having someone in a family for many years the 'in law' almost disappears and they become just brothers. I do not usually stop by your chronicles so after you left the note of condolence and mentioned your loss I had to stop by. Blessings on your family during this time.
