I don't like green eggs and ham...


Actually it is winter I don't like. And here it is the end of August. The days are getting shorter and nearly everyone I know is giddy at the mere thought of autumn. Alas, I am not giddy or even slightly glad. In the autumn everything dies and it gets cold and dark and dreary. Why would I like that?
But I do like boots... There's that.
I would joyfully live where winter is but a fairytale. I dream of burning my winter clothes in a glorious pyre! Dried leaves and bare branches do not delight me. I need sunshine and salt water and long, long days.
So, there is my little rant in anticipation of the bleakness to come.
For all of you autumn/winter lovers~enjoy! You may have my portion!
Me? I am building a boat that can carry me to the West Indies...
or perhaps I'll take up curling...

Amen to that sister ! I do not like anything at all about cold ~ Nothing nothing ! If I had warmth all year that would be heaven to me !
Since we live sort of close by each other if you ever want to call or email to gripe about the cold, I am all sympathy ~

I see we live near each other. Did you go to Paper Cowgirls or just do the art for it? I recognise your logo from Paper Cowgirls but, don't remember meeting you. I was a bit distracted though that weekend. I too am a displaced Mermaid. I LOVE the beach/ocean/sea & all things Mermaid. I went to Manhattan Beach, CA in July to attend Kim Caldwell's Mermaid Event. Your art is amazing. I love your style. It is so what I would love to have. How long have you been working in digital art? LOVE LOVE LOVE the beautiful misty feeling of your work. Charlene

I like boots and my crockpot. Not together... other than that, give me a hot humid beach and a sundress and keep your damn long john underwear and gloves. :)

Can I get a ride on that boat?! I'm just like you...in no hurry for autumn...because winter always follows. I'd be happy to just skip that season:)

Luckily, the winters here are mild, and it's the summer season that can be rather harsh.(We'll still be hitting 100-plus through September!)
