Hoping for Many More Road Trips to Come

It has been five years since Adrian Kosky, with one of his sons, and I left Cullowhee, North Carolina, and headed for Memphis, Tennessee, on our first road trip together.  It's been quite a journey, so far, and I'm happy to continue wondering whilst wandering and planning more pondering......plandering.......with Adrian, as I believe the commencement of our friendship was an act of God.  I am thankful for blessings that come as answers to prayers.

Old Pictures, New Places to Share

I'm enjoying the pictures shared by my friends -- old and new -- and my family via facebook.  

What a blessing it is to have a way to renew, continue, and make new friendships, whilst being so far away from where I started out in the world!  Here's a photo that was recently shared with me by a friend from my high school.


I'm holding my clarinet, third row, second on the left; and, although it has been over 30 years since this picture was made, I can remember enjoying this moment and being with my musical friends.  This picture brings back good memories!

Drawing......Again.

It has been a while since I had a reason to draw.....I mean, as a teacher, I used to draw pictures as a teaching tool/method for primary students, but it has been about four years since I have had any students to teach.....and I have been without my usual reason for drawing.  

When I was a child I drew pictures just to be drawing pictures.  I think I am reverting to that reason for drawing, and I like that idea.

Wounded Cockatoo

For the past few months I have been observing and feeding a wounded cockatoo.  I'm happy to see improvement! The cockatoo seems to be getting along as well as all the others now.  Here's a slide show of some recent pictures I have taken:
