When we came home from our Thanksgiving vacation last year, we were met with this sight in our circle.
Someone had knocked down a light pole. This is the only light in our circle and it was darker than dark! We phoned the city regularly. Yes, it would only take 13 weeks to replace it. So December went by... January...February... March... April...May....June....
So it was, 24 weeks later when lo and behold..."Let there be light!" At last!
Tonight I sat watching the TV news when there was a terrific racket of birds chirping and calling outside the window. By the time I got my photograph, more than half had flown away. What was making them cause all the racket? Then I saw.....the Scrub Jay. The finches and sparrows must have been afraid for their nests. This must be the third round of nesting that these birds have gone through since February. The light among the bushes was not good enough to take a photo of the Jay.
This is my latest miniature which I copied from the cover of the book "The Inklings" by Jeschke. The book is about the literary group C.S. Lewis began while he was studying at Oxford. It is a very innocuous romance. It was worth reading because of all the details about Oxford University and C.S. Lewis, but I wouldn't number it among my favorites. But I did like the cover!
I have decided to a a series of miniatures like these and call them simply "Doorways" This will be Doorways #2.
Doorways #1 is below.
