A SUMMER SOLSTICE DIGITAL PHOTO by Roswila
A BLESSED SOLTICE TO ALL!
Retired, I'm grateful to be able to indulge in daily blogging, taking digital photos (on which I work daily), writing poetry every day (mostly on my night dreams), and other creative efforts as the spirit grabs me. I also enjoy reading my poems and sometimes improvising on one of the musical instruments in my collection (e.g. didjeridu or kalimba), in our retirement community's regular Talent Shows. Occasionally, I offer a large exhibit (and sale) of my photos and poems in our community room, and display a few pix on our Art Wall.
