My daughter Laura is a very talented artist, writer and singer. None of that is what she does to earn a living – but she can’t get away from it.
She painted a picture (11 x 14) to accompany one of her “internalisms” and gave it to her Aunt in Florida. I scanned it before it got away…
The verse written above the flower is:
I tried to catch a hummingbird once. I could never be sweet enough to hold his attention. Perhaps a flamingo would better appreciate my saltiness.
