Thanks, Kelly. And that was through my dirty window! Gonna have to wash them if I'm going to get such colorful visitors.

I love the entire progression from tippy-toes to the actual plunge, plus the 'spectator' in the back. LOL. Fabulous!

Yeah, that's what I loved too. He went to the bubbling rock first but I guess he couldn't figure it out or wanted something more traditional so he moved over the to bird bath. I'm going to have to wash my windows so I can get better shots.

(I did get the ID right, didn't I?)

They found your oasis! It's funny, but we recently started seeing Black-headed Grosbeaks at our feeder, too. Synchronicity!

Oooh I love the idea of synchronicity. Send me some more, will you please? I love my finches and doves but I like a little variety now and then too.

I've got a Spotted Towhee singing outside. Do you ever see those?

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
