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. :)

What resistance's about? We think we know We watched the media, and they said so The resistance's not fresh, but dark and deep Let's pray from sunrise until we sleep Whichever side we are on, our fate we own Stay kind, do good, we're not alone

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
