Hello, friends. Sorry about being more absent than present lately. Today’s art is brought to you by me. I was a real butterfly child. I grew up with the privilege of living in Monarch butterfly territory. I remember standing on my bed and looking out the window as a small child, watching the butterflies flit outside…

Although the post title comes from Woody Guthrie, the picture is entitled Dear Sweetheart (2010). It's by Ibeabuchi Ananaba. As always feel free to respond with a lyric, a quote, an observation, a poem, or some…

When I found my copy of for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf nestled among many untold treasures in my college town used bookstore (okay, it was one of two - both beloved, but I hope it was the 2-story one that's packed to the gills with such treasures.)...
