Because I’m away from my familiar, this month’s post is short.
May has been a whirlwind of life. After finally establishing a plan to research, prepare, and submit to publishers that might be a possible fit for me and my manuscript, the days have flown by and my long-planned Calgary family visit is upon me. So here I sit, reunited, among fans of the Battle of Alberta NHL playoff aftermath, some like-minded, some not-so-much, happy my team is moving forward. Maybe Canada can win back the cup this year. Go Oilers!
THIS MONTH’S PHOTOGRAPH:
A Brief Bit of Brilliance on a Rainy May Morning
Full Moon Japanese Maple (Acer shirasawanum f. aureum) Not sure but I think this is the correct genus, species, and cultivar for this lime-green glory accented by my favourite Hino-Crimson Azalea.
THIS MONTH’S SKETCH:
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
Wise words. Jazmine and Gary get a rare visit from Granddogma this month.
READING LIST: Also short this month.
It’s not that I’ve read less. I just began more, and completed fewer works:
- Billie Livingstone (2016) – The Crooked Heart of Mercy
- Catherine Hernandez (2017) – Scarborough
