May I just say that sometimes blogging is hard? Perhaps tougher than it looks from that side of the screen. I took so much encouragement from your response to my last post, but I'm also feeling a bit drained at the moment. And I haven't shared any sketches with you lately, so in place of words this morning. . . . last night's sketch, my pencilled interpretation of a selfie photo you can see on Instagram. Vulnerable in the exposure of my completely ungroomed grey hair, I'm nonetheless shielded by my dark lenses -- that analogy works for me this morning. (For other sketched portraits of Yours Truly, see this post).
For better entertainment, pop over to my friend Sue's for the most delightful Fantasy Backyard Book Party ever. She can really set a scene, tell a story, and assemble a charming cast of characters.
I'll be livelier next post, promise. . . .
