This painting spoke to me today.
I like to think that those birds are Dan and me.
You see, we are big on wishing around here.
Last year every wish was the same.
We were in every way united in our wish making.
Like these bluebirds we were fighting to make that wish happen.
And ours did, Dan got his job here in Alabama.
As I am uncovering many many treasures in my art room.
I'm finding wishes that had been packed away are reappearing.
My Mommy gave me this tin to house my wishes.
For now it is the home for my collection of mushroom birds.
They are waiting to be made into pretties and be sent out into the world to ask you "What's your wish for today?"
