L e t T h e Sunshine I n




I don't want much, but I do so like
.a stack of  textured old paper that enjoys inks as much as paints.
.my trusty tin with watercolour pans, the old ones much beloved, too.
.nibbled on HB pencils and Indian inks as black as midnight.
.the sound of silence.

I don't need much either, but my home is incomplete without
.my  bunch of bouncy noisy crazy children.
.make-up home made cakes after teenager dramas.
.ongoing giggles and rummicub games.
.the luxury of uninterrupted sleep.
.the sound of breathing.
.the silence that never is.

And for all I wish
A soon to arrive sunny sparkly Summer*

  1. I really like this thoughtful post.
    I like to have a certain amount of silence each day. Starting my morning off with silence is a true luxury when you have a houseful of children.

  6. As the snow continues to fall, loading spruce branches (once again) I envision a Season Switch...

    Winter when I am feeling quiet.
    Summer when driving S and V to robot competitions at the university.
    Fall when I want to camp in the mountains.
    And Spring when I need hope.

    1. Such a wondrous journey is this.
      Seasons weaving into one another.
      Connecting us under this blanket of
      Ceaseless night time x
