Writing Under Yellow Skies

Half of a yellow sun? Forget about it- I have whole of a yellow sky. Today the skies have turned yellow with dust and finally I am writing freely. From the beginning I suspected I needed a bit of dirt, some litter, chaos of some sort and here it is and I'm thankful. I'm trapped in my room mentally and physically, no dilly dallying about beaches to swim and wonderful pastries to be eaten, and the words are flowing and it feels great, as such I'll not malinger long here.

Instead I will give you snaps of our most recent towel art. It was in Elmaz's room yesterday. A crocodile! Check out the tongue and the teeth made with stamens and pistils from the hibiscus flowers. Unfortunately Elmaz has a double bed not two singles so she cannot leave her towel art on a bed gallery, so alas, the crocodile is no more.

I realize I have missed out - I didn't discover towel art till this very moment. How incredibly creative - I absolutely adore that crocodile! I also love the surrounding decorations on the bed.

Yellow skies I know nothing about. Ours is plain old blue at the moment, but we did have some hail falling from it not long ago. That is a Norwegian summer for you...

I love the crocodile. I'm pleased to learn you're writing away. A little dirt and a few towel crocodiles might have been just what you needed.

Yes, at first I thought you meant the ash from Iceland had hit Botswana, as I just got back from London. Was the towel art in a hotel room or at home? beautiful.
