Little Luscious Lips

They all want to kiss me.




They all want to squeeze me because I am soft and cute.




But even though I’m only three, I’m already my own self. Respect me.




You think you can make yourself irresistible?




It is only I. Only I am irresistible. Don’t kiss me.

Iris & the Skirt of Many Fabrics

At a garage sale,

Mom bought a box of batik fabric that someone had cut into small pieces with the intent of making a quilt.

The quilt was never completed.




She bought me the fabric thinking I might use the tiny pieces to make tiny doll clothes.

I have decided that I enjoy piecing the fabric for clothing.




This skirt has 32 different fabrics.




I took Iris to the field across from the school to model it for me.




…& then strange tiredness overcame her, & she lay on the ground, immobile.

Coaticook River Rock Tossing Expedition

It started out in the normal way: a walk in the woods down to the river,




fully clothed.




But, with the toss of the first rock, the first splash wetted their clothing andβ€”




Off it came! Splash!




In to the water with the rocks!




Throw to the other side!












It’s good to have a river.
