The New Year

I took this photo the other day of a sweet, chubby Robin sitting in our tree....feels like a good New Year image. I am wishing for a New Year full of grace, simple beauty and feeling strength in myself. I want to sit on a branch and be perfectly happy...and fly when I want to. Takes a long time to get to that place...but I'm workin' on it!

Happy New Year everyone. xox

Best wishes for you, this new year, 2008, my dear Linda. We have yet to meet in person, yet I feel I know you. Love that. Love the photo, and words, too.

Came across your blog from another one you had posted at. I like your art. I do a little art myself. Check it out - I've having a give-away to celebrate one year of blogging.

Happy New Year, Miss Linda! Kurt LOVED his milk painting. It was perfect, as I knew it would be. Now he just has to find the right spot for it. We're so pleased to have one of your paintings in our home. Here's to all good things in 2008. xo from Mississippi, Amy

Hi Linda! Happy New Year!! I've missed you and Ms. Maisie! I love your gorgeous photo of the robin. And I love what you wrote about wanting to "sit on a branch and be perfectly happy...and fly when I want to." Such beautiful words and aspiration/inspiration! Thank you!

h wow- love this photo!! It is so up my alley- my very favorite images are very graphic, black and white. I really need to be living in a mod apartment but alas, no, it's spanish revival, lol.

Happy New Year to you too Linda!! Sorry I am so late in catching up!!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
