After a long hot day, the evenings are relaxing and cool.
I sit outside.
A light breeze blows through the trees.
I tilt back my head against the back of the chair.
Chimney swifts fly high above the trees, zig zagging like acrobats as they chase after
flying insects.
A humming bird comes by to sip the sugar water I put out in the humming bird
feeder. It’s a beautiful green. His wings are a blur as he hovers and sips.
These are simple moments to enjoy.
P.S. My newest scratch board is below.

Soldier Portraits
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate
portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation
