Meet Plop....

This is Plop, my baby box turtle that I found on the side of the road some months ago. She's about 3" round. Her turn ons include live crickets, strawberries, tomatoes, and canned turtle food. She doesn't care much about long walks on the beach at sunset.

In the Spring, when it's warm, she will go visit some relatives in a safe place, far from busy roads.

Plop would say "Thanks" for the kind comments too if she could speak English. So far, she only speaks turtleish.

Thanks so much for the comments (ps keep 'em coming!)

Thank you all for your comments, they mean a lot to me. I'm a little under the weather mentally/emotionally right now, and the positive notes are heaven.Happy days!

2009~my word of intention=commitment

I've read on several blogs about choosing 1 word to represent my intentions for myself in the New Year (sorry, Happy New Year!). One comment on a blog led me here . And here is my word: COMMITMENT.
Commitment to myself and my art. Commitment to a goal that I set for myself 2 years ago, and recently extended another year. (thoughts become things, thoughts become things, thoughts become things), the charm having been said: my goal is a show of my art by age 61. whew.
The place is irrelevant: a bowling alley will do. I just want my art to be seen, my loved ones there (does that sound too funeral-like?) the people I care about who care about me there, and food & music. See why any place will do?
I have 1 year and 9 months to make this happen.

What is your word for 2009?
All my best wishes to you!
