I am a mermaid….

by Leonie Dawson on October 30, 2004

Today’s art project, inspired by the Leonie is a Mermaid blog.

Three succulent things I did today.

1.) Above. A mermaid self portrait. Scribing and brushing my life.

2.) Planted herbs for my windowsill. My marigolds are growing marvellously, and I love their cheerful presence.

3.) Gave Chris a massage with lavendar oil. The smell of lavendar is intoxicating and soft, and gentle.

Three more succulent events.

1.) Talking to dear Lisa Marie.

2.) Both me and the boy are sick today, so we are gentle with ourselves, and slowly moving.

3.) Our rose garden just bursting with juicyness.
