will I release to
the leaves of the day.
Little loves will I
set free on the breezes
of beautiful intention.
(end of poem.)
Kelly sure was inspired that November afternoon I took her to the Umlauf Sculpture Garden.
She was four.
We’d just come from the song contest awards (I’d won 2, whoo-hoo) and she was jazzed.
She’d run to and pose beside, in, on, around and under more than 30 pieces of art that day, singing out “Mommy, take my picture! Take my picture!!”
I’m glad she did.
And I’m glad I did.
She’s something else, that Kelly girl!
Now that I’ve maxed my photos to 790px wide, yep — 50px wider (couldn’t resist,) I feel very very extrahappy about sharing my favorites with you.
Official new English word — extrahappy!
Your input on my recent photo-size poll helped twist my rubber arm to the 790 pix. 😉 Thank you.
In other news… sooner than later I’ll explain the plan behind my new “Places I Like To Go…” links on my now 150px wide sidebar (down from 200 px!)
And post a video of me singing a new song I’m writing.
And have some kind of a giveaway.
All sound good?
P.S. All photos in this post, unlike this photo the other day, are 100% unretouched. Umlauf does keep things camera-ready!
