Father daughter time

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve,
 too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke

It seems unfair that we at some point have to say goodbye to our parents, but time passes and this time comes eventually. I'm very grateful to have my father around and to be able to spend some time with him almost daily. He's a kind and fun guy and a loving grandfather. 

This is my contribution to Take a Word which theme this week is TIME.

Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough. George Bernard Shaw

Art déco beach

Hi! The theme in Take a Word is WARM COLORS and it reminded me of Miami Beach and its art déco architecture.

The background is a photo I took there; the goddesses, birds and sun are part of the façade of the building bellow (also my photo). There's a Kim Klassen texture and a pattern that is a Dover free sample.

Wild Spirit

All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man... 
the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
Chief Seattle 

Hi there! Take a Word asked for Wild Animals and as you can see I love cats, especially the big ones.

I googled everything but the texture that is Kim Klassen's.

“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.” - Alice Walker

"Os animais existem por suas próprias razões. Eles não foram feitos para os humanos, assim como os negros não foram feitos para os brancos ou as mulheres para os homens." - Alice Walker

Circles, Squares and Glasses

"Men seldom make passes / At girls who wear glasses" ~ Dorothy Parker

"Rose-colored glasses are never made in bifocals. Nobody wants to read the small print in dreams."
 ~ Ann Landers

Hello! The challenge is CIRCLES AND SQUARES in The Three Muses and it reminded me of glasses. They are a curse with which I have lived from 9 to 13 years old. Contact lenses replaced them until I was 26. So I had the surgery and up to 39 I was just having fun with sunglasses. By 40 the curse has struck again...

A Friend in the dark

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” ― Helen Keller

Hi! Take a Word asked for DARK and it occurred to me I could did a darker version of this collage.
