Enough winter for me. Am ready for Spring! Since it still will take a few months, I’ll escape for some moments from reality and daydream of last Spring’s adventures in Lucca.
Opening the door
a warm wind blew in
the sun gently brushed against my cheek
The puddles reflecting the sky
of the endless torrents of rain
I heard pelting my roof
Soon the mud in the alley would harden
enough to ride my bike

smudgestick, saturation, and filled in by hand with a light and dark checker pattern
the tower in the distance
all is well
could sit on the bench in the sun
or hide in the shade of the surrounding trees.
wildflowers and weeds
popping up in the fields to my heart’s content
sing a song of hope and merriment
as I walk to the inside
Last year June, we were for a week in Lucca, Tuscany. Considering myself an artist,
I smiled when I realized that Lucca
is a form of Luke, considered to be the patron saint of the artists (painters).
Not to mention that our honeymoon was in Malaga, Spain, the birthplace of Picasso.
I became aware of these two coincidental events after we had been there.
Is anything coincidental or do things happen for a reason?
Me thinks probably either way part of the time, but it’s easier for me to recognize the destiny in the events
as well as in the journeys we take.
Thanks to All the Hosts!
