SPRING IS FINALLY HERE....finally.....


(originally posted 3.31.08)
Spring is FINALLY here....the snows have finally melted, and there is grass ( of a sorts) again. It is warm here, in the upper forties, there are crocuses, and mud. And Baseball began, with the Indians winning their Opening day....10-7 over the Sox....It was a good day.

As a little Spring Gift I have Linked A Painting Elephant to the Title. The Elephant is named Chiang Mae and she is a Star on YouTube, she painted flowers, and even self portraits ( see the Link). She is in a refuge in Thailand, after serving hard work in Burma, she is receiving care and therapy in the Refuge. Painting is part of her therapy. Watch her paint with such care and so quietly. Her work in Available for sale to supoort her care at ExoticWorldGifts.com, they have many fine arts and crafts available.

Art can be therapeutic for any that have been traumatized.... Soft Strokes and healing Colors....

Yeaaay for Spring! I love how fresh the air feels.

I watched the whole vid and thought WOW, another barrier has been crossed, one assumed to be uniquely human. That little flourish at the end to show how her trunk holds the flower was breathtaking! I've seen apes paint, but they do not do self-portraits, at least not recognizeably so. They use mostly vibrant colors, ending up with a canvas that resembles a Jackson Pollock.

Congratulations on opening season! That picture is beautiful, is that nice there already? Our snow should be primarily gone today but more snow wouldn't surprise me. That video is pretty cool, quite remarkable actualy! I wish I could have one of them, the elephant that is.

The weather is springing here slowly, but my interior landscapes seem to thaw more reluctantly. Perhaps the Hot Water Bottle of blogging will help. Gods know I've nothing to lose.
Thank you for the elephant and the lovely and hopeful photo.
Namaste, my friend.
