Book Character

Art challenge, memorable book character
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
Not just a character, but as a real person who portrayed the role of Anne Frank in real life, this girl left a permanent mark in my heart. 

This was a required book to read for students in the United States. I finished my school up through the first year of college in the Philippines so this book was never a required reading to me as a young student. 

I did read it when I was around twenty and it brought me to tears. Anne was an intelligent and sweet girl who wrote her entries in the form of a diary documenting everyday life even in hiding. You've got to know her.

This art entry is my hurried calligraphy using a page in my journal and my daughter's calligraphy pen. As you can see, I am art-challenged. :)

I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro
