I am submitting an illustration for Hennie’s marvelous weekword early for two reasons. I am going to be super busy tomorrow and I think this drawing will also work for the Illustration Friday prompt double. So… without further ado, I present this summer’s signature hairdo…. Double camp counselor braids twisted up and secured with two paintbrushes. It’s what I have been wearing almost every day lately. Will I ever stop twisting my hair into silly shapes? Probably not.
Hennie’s braid post reminds me that I intended to mention a favorite book of mine… The WIld Braid: A Poet Reflects on a Century in the Garden, by Stanley Kunitz. It is a mix of poetry, gardening and a good life. Beautiful.
And now this coincidence… today’s Poem-A-Day, La Figlia Che Piange has sent me into a T.S. Elliot swirl.
