  2. Great photos - as per usual - but the first one is especially nice. I like the layers of cloud and color and then the long line of light stretching up. Very special! Thanks for sharing.

  3. love your Asian style brush paintings-really lovely Carol. Your photos and poetry always show us a beautiful world-and that's exactly what we need to remember.
    Just wondering-why are the llamas/alpacas wearing harnesses around their faces?

  10. I love your Asian style brush paintings. They are getting better and better in practice. They match your haiku style of poetry perfectly. I look forward to seeing them weekly...even the practice pages. We all have them. Dr Seuss was so wise. His delivery so gentle. I hope you got to see the Super Moon. I saw a photo on FB taken in Cape Ann. It was outstanding. Give the little Muse a pat for me.

  21. Llamas are such peculiar looking creatures, I think it is because they look familiar and yet on closer inspection they aren't. Lovely sunset.
