Flying Dragons

Not too long ago ... but far, far away (West Texas) ... Lizzie and I headed off on our evening walk. This particular evening we decided to head straight instead of turning left ... that is when we made this magical discovery ... the "flying dragon streetlight" ... it took my breath away ... I love, love, love quirky animal motifs! Bear in mind ... this is West Texas ... our favorite motifs are cowboy boots, cactus, roadrunners, chili peppers, longhorns and such ... so a "flying dragon streetlight" definitely stands out in this crowd! Now this new path has become a regular walk ... at least twice a week we head straight ... instead of left ... just to stare and smile! Serendipity ... I think so!

Sidewalks, Chalk and Spring!

Paint and walk Lizzie ... paint and walk Lizzie ... that is my daily rhythm now as I make my final approach towards Cafe Lago! On our evening walks ... colorful chalk drawings have begun to appear ... scribbled wildly across the park sidewalks! There is a joyful energy in these scribbles ... no editing or erasing ... just the marks of a spirited young artist having fun! My smile is always bigger as we silently stroll across this very charming bit of earth!
