Winter winds are still hanging on and chilling the air here on Cape Ann. Sun is warming up but still a bit to go before it truly feels like Spring. Yet,  am grateful for the beautiful days we have. Hope we all will be able to get outside this weekend and enjoy nature. Wonder what you will be doing to creatively express yourself?

  9. Hard to choose a favorite from today's selections , but if I must it's your harbor sunrise. You've really captured the feel of winter letting go to spring. Also, some wise words in your haiku mosaic.

    A question for you Carol- notice that you sometimes combine several different memes in one post. Do your readers appreciate that approach? I think its important to comment as well as post, but find it hard to visit a lot of my blogger friends every day. Instead, I try to read all their entries for the week and comment. I'm just trying to decide whether to do a combined post on a weekly basis or still use the daily/several times a week approach. Your thoughts?

    1. Fay ~ many people do multiple memes ~ more efficient in a way ~ Readers hard to tell what they like about that method but I am getting lots of wonderful commenters ~ Only recently cut back on posting ~ used to do everyday and I found it too much ~ trying to simplify my life.It is really your choice ~ do what works best for you. Have a great weekend ^_^

  40. You always seem to evoke some sort of emotion with your posts. I don't know why but I always find images of empty seats quite melancholy. There you are... you've done it again. :-) Fabulous.

  41. The bench looks so lonely, but you know someone will come to visit soon.

  42. Hi! Nice painting and beautiful photos and affectingly Haiku. I reminded of a Japanese poem, "I am bathed in tears to the islet beach and play with a crab." The meaning is different from your Haiku. But I felt Nature healing is almost the same.

  43. Sorry for not being able to appreciate the beauty of haiku because of the translation, my oinglé not good enough torque understand the beauty of the poem, but the beauty of the images. Saludos
