Bigger Fish to Fry

Art Challenge, water color, stress reliever
The Bird and the Fish

Hey, the link is still open!

I am virtually running to submit my artwork here (if you can call it artwork) before the door closes. It is the third of the month and I am linking my first entry.

I am sort of cheating here as these are my experimental watercolor pencil I did about a couple of months ago. The picture taking was just done today, though, and the editing and stuff.

The coloring book is from Color Me Your Way, Animals A-Z. No, it's not from the kid's section. It is an adult coloring book. OK, it says, for ages 8 to adult. I use it from time to time as a stress reliever. 

I am no artist and am not fishing for compliments here. And although I have bigger fish to fry, this kind of activity virtually puts money on my piggy bank reserve that I can withdraw from in times of stress.

It has been a while since I depleted my reserves. Last month and this month, I am doing a few things to reenergize to rebuild my resiliency. If I can't get escape from the challenges the follow me, I can at least prepare myself for them.

So, this is me, the green angel fish with my friends and family--facing them, being with them, and trying to stay pretty, haha. And as if I don't have enough challenges in my life, here I am with this artistic group joining the Art Challenge this month of June. Unlike other challenges around me, though, this is a fun one. Ivy, did I just answer the question/topic of the first day, who are you?

Birthday Month

Here are some random photos I picked From my collection that makes me think The smiles and laughs shared With the people who care I share my birthday month with some loved ones Some close, some far With distance or heart In my thoughts they are present Sometimes that's all that matter The experience, tastes, and feelings matter too Simple things like easter bombs "cocoa" A manicure with massage And more sweet happy birthday cakes A workout in different virtual destinations I cannot go there for real but virtually I can New Zealand, Spain, the Pacific Islands All in one day Imagined or virtual They can bring joy

Easter 2021

It's that season again when the breeze is warm enough To go out in nature And the hike is not so rough The ground is dry enough The rock's not so slippery As we climbed the trails above Not so muddy but rocky There's not much greenery But a hint of good scenery With young growth below, yet premature Give a hope that reassures Then Easter Day we were looking forward to Came by and flew through A few weeks of preparation With our three generations Putting up decorations Getting gifts all ready Making food for everybody Some are healthy, some . . . just yummy The egg hunting that used to be for our children Some many years ago  are now enjoyed by our grandkids Who reminds us of those early years The happy birthday days of festivities The joy from those activities Makes me grateful for simple things  That has not changed Spending time, playing, and eating together Can bring joy altogether

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
