art and books

art on the walls
and books by my chair
and computer
as I read in my study
I realize my current
arrangement reflects
work by poets and artists
that I ordered online
small orders here and there

As much as I love the vintage art, it is amazing to realize all I have learned about contemporary art too – from blogs and other sites these past years.

And always today, by God’s grace. Thank you.

sometimes

I reread a few poems
by different poets,
and remember
when I read them before

or listen to a few songs
from different albums
and artists, and remember
when I listened before

and new meaning today

This week, Karl and I went to the Habitat for Humanity store in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I bought Devotions for Christmas: A Celebration to Bring You Joy and Peace (2016, Zondervan). A beautiful book for one dollar.

Habitat for Humanity “We build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”

Some day, I hope to measure some of the cards and prints in my files, from many years.

Then, when we are at a resale store, we can look for frames.

Creative Note: Books

We went to the Bethesda Wisconsin – Sheboygan Thrift Shop. I mostly looked at art and books. I bought two books. A wonderful store. I can always donate back or give to another person or thrift store, after I read.

Yesterday a new book arrived. Karl asked if I wanted to add anything to an order from Amazon.

The new book is a glimpse of water fall, poems and drawings by Jane Tims. Fredericton, April 2021. Published by Kindle Direct Publishing.

I first learned of Jane’s work from her site, nichepoetryandprose “poetry and prose about place.”
