Soft Wind

 
Softly the wind blew
A new season on its way
Outside the birds sing

Here's a little card I made for a special lady I used to teach English to. She's in her nineties now and in a retirement home, she wanted to learn English in her late seventies, we'd meet in a café and we'd have our informal lessons there every Friday mornings for two hours. I loved those mornings together!  When I moved away we kept in touch and have written to each other regularly. She's a lovely gentle soul and still paints and sends me her beautiful watercolor cards.  There are some people you meet in life and they touch you, she is one of those special ones I am so grateful to have met.

Happy Easter to all!

What a lovely and different card, I'm sure your friend will love it. That's a rather nice little poem, our birds here are not yet sure whether it is time to sing or not.

Thank you for introducing us to your friend. It is wonderful when we meet someone who becomes special to us whether we get to see them on a daily basis or just through the internet and mail.

Your words and painting are both lovely. Have a wonderful week, Kat.
