“Mark your calendars! Patty Reedyk will have this book in stock soon. Read it beforehand if you can. It knocked my socks off. I read it in a single sitting (with no intention of doing so). I found myself lost in it from the first pages. A beautiful exploration of grief and love and resilience. How do we find meaning when there seems to be none? How do we go on when we can’t go on? Is there a way togrieve joyfully or grieve lovingly? There is so much to talk about – the realest stuff. Plus Becky Livingston is someone you absolutely want to meet! Come hear how she quit her job and sold her house and spent 2+ years as a nomad, wandering the planet and spreading her daughter’s ashes. This is a conversation – and a book! and a woman! – you do not want to miss. Trust me.”
I’ve decided to start a new collection of drawings, pairing birds and a tropical or not so tropical plant. I don’t think I should limit myself. It’s no secret that I love birds. I love identifying bird songs just as much as I love drawing them and I love plants. I’m planning on creating 20 of these illustrations, a nice sized collection, and I’ve three already.: Heron, Kingfisher and Loon. These little projects bring me immense pleasure. Have yourself a wonderful day!
I’ll keep you posted on how this series is going. I know you can’t wait to find out what birds I’m going to do next.
