So, Teenie my Character has met Cinnabar a horse she adores in the meadow. She is on her way to sketch and encounters Jose who has made her a lovely palm frond hat. Also, Devlin’s red tail hawk is now one of her totems. He lives in the Eucalyptus trees near her.

*guardian figures in tale so far are Jose (A character very close to the earth from Mexico — Saint Francis figure!
I’m listening to Cooder’s Cuba album and dancing around periodically as I craft the novel. One of my faves. Also thinking of Olvera St in LA and the paper doves I always got there as a child — or the paper flowers. Once a famous children’s book author did a watercolor for me! In the book Song of the Swallows. I have it with me still. Not a bad way to sign a book, me’thinks. So beautiful! This is him!
So I am a bit behind. But I have major flow so no probs! xxoo! back laterz.

So you have inside of you another story growing. Mjy comments sparse as of late as I have been fighting a lymph infection–Trying to keep my spirits up and talking to you and reading your first chapters. Well I love the thought of fields of flowers. And you know I love you and your writing more than words can say. Of course St Francis is dear. I always felt close to him and St. Theresa of Avila–well her gusto absolutely irked those who believed that being spiritual meant being all dried up. Hahaha! Not so! I feel better having talked to you!
See? You’re a magician
My uncle was. I am very much like him. Like all of them, actually. Poignant this am, for me. Also tristesse.
