Drawing Challenge / Alice

Her attention was drawn by a reddish light in the distance.
Coming closer the red light faded and at first she noticed a lovely dress.
'Oh nice' Alice whispered.
'What ?'
Now she saw the blue-footed sheep.
' What are you reading?' she asked.
'I am reading any book.' the sheep answered.
'Yes' the sheep said ' i am trying to find a clue,
i tried throwing the dice but i don't understand the result, so i started reading.'

' Which clue are you looking for?' Alice asked.
' Any clue.' said the sheep.

Alice looked around, ' What's in those small red boxes?'
' That's the problem ', the sheep replied, ' my dreams and wishes are in there, i put them in so
i wouldn't loose them and now i can't open the boxes anymore and i am beginning to
forget what my dreams and wishes were.

'Oh that's very serious.' Alice sighed.

'Maybe it's better to give the boxes away, you can have them.' said the sheep.
'O that's sweet' Alice answered, ' but i have my own dreams and wishes.'
' Do you keep them in boxes too?' the sheep asked.
Alice giggled, ' No ! why would i keep my dreams and wishes packed away?'
' I am afraid you have to leave then, i have a lot of reading to do ', the sheep said ' but you can have the dress .'
The red light became stronger again.

 A magical weekend to you all, xx

I can hear the crows calling
they are all around the house
they are everywhere i go
I listen to their cawing
the repeating
the answers

strange..yet familiar
it reassures me
often i stand still
listening to their croaking
trying to understand

Berries and fruit

the magnolia tree is bearing fruit for the first time since it was planted,
amazingly beautiful, strange and funny in form and colour (the construction
of the magnolia flower is similar to that of the oldest known fossil flower)
some parts make me think of young birdheads

Drawing challenge / Development

Development; a theme with lots and lots of possibilities.
Everything constantly developing, moving, changing.

The personal development each and everyone of us makes living our live;
influenced by the world that surrounds us from the day of our birth on, what we receive and notice
with all our senses, what moves and touches us, what we do with all the information we get,
with all the emotions we experience, all the other human beings we meet (also constantly developing),
how this makes, we all develop our own and unique pesonality

I tried to paint that :)

Our sweet, rose loving host this week is Ariane.

Happy weekend to you all dear readers, xx
