Art Question Of The Day

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Is it better to paint one painting that a person looking at it can absolutely sink their teeth into it or is better to produce a thousand paintings where the sheer mass that is produced demands notice?

A Day For The Earth

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

-

Earth day, today, was one of the first events that I attended as  a tyke. I was 15 years old and it was held outside the Philadelphia art museum.  Lots of balloons and tables with info on how to save the earth.  I drew the logo from that event and taped it onto the ceiling of my bedroom.  Every night that was the last thing I saw as I drifted into sleep.  It affected me deeply and ever since that time I have tried to live an earth friendly life.

Thinking about how what I ea,t what I buy, what I do affects the way the earth will survive.
Now, being an old bag,  I think one of the best things a person can do is grow a garden / plant a tree.  If each person on the earth did this the earth would start toregenerate itself.

Imagine, if every nook and cranny was covered with greenery! A bubble up solution that only needs people and plants.  Create your own eco system on a porch, near a patio,  over your backyard and watch the bees, birds, butterflies and  possums visit your wonderland – this great green earth….. it is a gift to each one of us.

Peace, now start gardening!

Monday Night Flash Story Challenge

” A Pa;le Green Mermaid Blog “

Finish the story below it can be one sentence or 15 more, you decide!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It was a dark and stormy night…. Julinda opened the balcony window.
“Julinda Julinda,  a bouquet for you. “

She looked around but saw nothing.  Maybe she was hearing things.  She stepped out on to the edge of the rail looking for the eclipse promised at midnight.

” Julinda Julinda, here down here.

She stretched her head out looking below…..

Now read no further and write what happened next

?

My version

- sure enough there was a hand with a bouquet of roses .

She said, ” I can’t see you please lean out from your balcony.

A brown-eyed man appeared wearing a tweed cap and holding a martini in his other hand.

” I’ve admired you from afar from afar.  Julinda here catch, ” and with that he threw the roses up.  They flew past her head then as they passed back down she reached out, but missed  catching a few petals in her hand.

” Sorry, ” she muttered.

” That’s alright, I will try again tomorrow.” With that he poured himself another martini from a pitcher he had and disappeared under her balcony.

“Hmmm ,”she said.  Then the corner of her eye caught the beginning of a blue moon eclipse.  She watched in wonder thinking the world can be a strange but – interesting place.

THE END

PEACE and Happy writing…..
