Doodles this morning: I started with birds but quickly shifted to soldiers
Cormorant fishing

He has all the necessary equipment…

…not sure about the pom-pom?

Just following orders!

Hup two three…!

My Grandmother Is a Mermaid!

We love my grandmother's stories about the sea.

She insists she's just repeating what the seals tell her.

She has stories for every summer night when we visit her.

She's nothing to look at but we wonder if maybe she IS a mermaid?

What else would explain it?

A Safe World (despite it all!)

A windy world
… weedy! Prickly! Stickery! 
Old crones crossing a chasm. A mutual aid society of two.
C'mon! Careful!
The babies are playfully carried over on a gusty breeze. Gravity and thorns are not a big problem for them. They are like pollen or autumn leaves.
(05-11-15: mixed media)
Yet somehow, despite the willful wind they are never too far away from their earthbound parents.

An odd bird watches and waits
in a most inhospitable place.

'Midst sandstorms and mad mistrals

a blossom blooms and waiting is justified.

They regard each other and wait.

The Occupation

Weeds grow where wheat once proudly stood

Intricately tiled domes succumb, a dark mysterious wood.

The weathervane spins but no one looks

a black cat watches the laundry dry

And idled soldiers wet their lines

Achilles remains unfocused… why?

The Occupation
