327 - Dragonsinger

This is not the image I was going to post today - but then I heard that Anne McCaffrey had died. I feel such a profound sense of loss. I loved her characters - so much so that when I needed a nickname to use on bulletin boards (before the internet was invented) I chose 'dragonsinger' (drgnsngr) - the character this book is about is a woman, a mother, a singer, a musician, and a teacher. At the time I chose the name I was all of these except teacher - now I am a teacher too. And I'm known to many as dragonsinger - the name has stuck! 

I'm closing my computer down and going to re-read (for the umpteenth time) Dragonsinger, Harper of Pern - and once again imagine myself soaring high on the dragons of Anne's imagination.

RIP Anne - I hope you're soaring on your gold dragon forever.

321 - Sea of yellow

I love this sea of yellow that greets me when I walk out of the learning street.

320 - Planting Season

I spotted these being planted yesterday by a neighbor - makes a difference to the tired lavender that was previously there.

318 - Words

I'm starting to collect words all over the place. Today's addition is Smile.

317 - Horizon

Hard choice for Sunday's photo - I'm guessing these are the remains of an old jetty.

314 - View from on high

I snuck outside while on the top floor of education house last night and spotted this while peering down.

309 - Sleepy kitty

Falkor has spent two days being confused at the stranger occupying her room. Now that I'm back and we've had our play time she's exhausted.
