Water lilies are fantastic, aren’t they? Just look at the gorgeous coloration someone captured in this spot. Spectacular! The vibrancy just makes my heart sing for the beauty of it. There’s nothing hidden in a water lily, she is fully alive and reveling in glory, a queen of aquatic plants, but always glancing up, towards her Creator. Were that we were all like she.
Nothing new for the month of June.
This month’s issue of The Scribe features a woman testing the durability of the Missouri Botanical Gardens’ legendary (at least locally) giant water lily pads. The Gibson Girl sylph, as I like to think of her, looks prepared to give the musical performance of her life, and I sort of wonder whether the gentleman in the background is at hand, just in case anything goes wrong.

It’s been a busy few weeks as I’ve begun (and finished) writing both of the reviews due for this month and I’ve migrated all of my older posts to my new domain, and updated the past blog posts, adding some monthly editions with brief summaries for where I’d forgotten or neglected to post at all that month.
Gateway Con is coming up next week, more information available at: http://www.stlwritersguild.org/gatewaycon.html.
Over the next few months, I really ought to make a point of these being longer with some other ‘currentlys’ that might be useful to keep track of (for example, listening to, learning, reading, loving, etc.)
Hope to see you next weekend at Gateway Con! If you’re not a reader, there’s also going to be an Author Hall with lots of free programming for readers. Be sure to check it out for a spell if you’ll be in the area and come find me.
Oh, nearly forgot… here’s where I’ll be speaking if you have any interest in the track for writers:
