Take a Word - Blue

Blue can mean so many things .... a state of melancholy (I'm so blue); risque or indecent (a blue joke); a cloudless sky;  freezing (blue with cold);  then there's this entry, the inspiration for which came "out of the blue"; and then there's being loyal or "true blue"...and then ..... well you get the idea!  I'm anxious to see where the word took everyone else!

Three Muses - Re-do

Thumbnail in lower left shows earlier work which was partially "harvested" for this piece.  Interesting challenge, Judy!  This was done for a challenge at our Digitalmania site, but it seemed to fit here very well. The thumbnail is, of course, the original piece which has been morphed into this one.

Three Muses - Music

When I was a child, I took piano lessons and I was a pinch hit accompanist for the hymns sung in our little country church.  I haven't touched a keyboard in years.  I'm sorry I didn't continue my musical journey.
The very lovely image I've used here is by Rolf Armstrong.

Take a Word - Show Biz

I decided on some words of wisdom from Miss Show Biz herself, Mae West.   I think I'd have loved to have lunch with Mae some time!

Three Muses - Reflections

There's something about seeing the lights of a city at night, either from across water or from high in an airplane, that makes me reflective. I lose myself in thought about all the lives represented there...the joys of birth, the grief of death, celebrations, angry confrontations...all the people swept along in the challenges of life, their stories as varied as pebbles on a beach.   Maybe that's what The Bard was thinking about when he made the statement above!

Take a Word - Childhood

Who is that square little person with her sturdy little legs, chubby cheeks, and stubby little fingers?   Well she did turn around and go out the door into the big, wide world.   Life was good, and now she's in her sunset years ..... with sturdy legs, chubby cheeks and stubby fingers!   Some things never change (sigh) !  Credit for elements to Eena's Creations.

Three Muses - Eyes

This quirky bit just sort of happened of its own free will!  The man is a freebie from Land of Nod, with a new head, eyes and hat; the man on the stool is from a home decorating catalog, and the script is from a googled vintage ad.  Square bits compliments of my good friend, Ozstuff.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Word - Autumn

The theme  this week is favorite time of year, but it seems it's coming all too fast this year.  The tree outside my window has begun to drop an occasional leaf, and I see hints of color in the forest, so it seems soon there will be Fall displays such as the one above.  The background is a photo I took near my home a couple of years ago, the Fall display is cybersurfed, and the scarecrow is a sketch from something I saw on the net.   The words, of course, are from the song "Autumn Leaves", so beautifully sung by the irreplaceable Nat King Cole.  Thanks for your visit!
