Show Our Animal Friends Some Love
This fabulous digi stamp is from Stamp & Doodle.
I put my wolf on a piece of found birch bark. I received a big piece
of birch bark straight from the wilds of Montana from my friend Elva.
I love using the birch bark. Although, for this piece I need to put my
wolf and bark on a sturdier background. I think this card is going on
my all time favorites list.
My version of moon shadow actually came from my memories of seeing 2
solar eclipses. Once on a special cruise just for Eclipse viewers. We sailed
from NYC to Dakar, Africa with a stop at the Canary Islands.
This was in 1973. Seeing this eclipse was truly a magical experience.
On deck in the middle of the day and being able to watch the moon
slide across the sun and gradually dim the sky to twilight. It was a
truly unforgettable experience. And, just to do a little name dropping
only gave classes but they also mixed and mingled with the passengers.
Another famous guest on board and a real treat to meet was
Isaac Asimov. I'm not a big fan of his science fiction books but I sure
enjoyed him as a person. I read his biography and included was
a chapter about this very trip. And, I was there.
On a trip to Hawaii several years ago, my daughter and I were fortunate enough to see
another solar eclipse. We happened to be in our tour bus at the time in
downtown Honolulu. We had no idea this was taking place until
we were on the plane and most of the passengers were flying to
Hawaii just to see the eclipse. What a happy accident that was.
It really is exciting to see the sky dim during the eclipse.
