Creative Notes and Gift Ideas

Kathleen Gresham Everett’s site is The Course of Our Seasons.  Today I am reading her book, Festival of Lessons and Carols, Poems of December.  Please visit her page, The Seasons Bookshop, for more information about her books.


Quiet Christmas Poetry, the large print book Karl and I created from my site of the same name, is available at the Time Of Singing books page.  Since I recently posted about the anthology, Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need, I would like to mention that you can combine orders for both books, for the special 3 for 12 dollars price.  All the details are at the TOS site.  Time Of Singing is published four times a year, and also would be a nice gift for someone else or yourself.  Lora Homan Zill is Editor.

My Aunt Irma was called Home this summer at the age of 99.  We went to a remembrance service at her retirement home last week, to honor and remember many residents.  When Aunt Irma first looked at the large print Christmas book, she said, “Oh, I can read this.”


Lora Zill’s site is FEELING GOD’S PLEASURE THROUGH CREATIVE WORK, the blue collar artist.   I enjoyed viewing her page, Stained Glass Art, today.


Thank you,

Daily Prompt: Rearrange

via Daily Prompt: Rearrange


I love to rearrange books and small pictures on my shelves.  These are simple things, with special meaning.


With photography, I look for natural arrangements in the yard.  The blue tarp on Karl’s trailer is a good background for autumn.  Plants by the back door add more colors.  Pine cones and leaves are also beautiful and interesting.  A squirrel is getting ready for winter and we had a lot of wind.
