"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Greetings to all of my Corgi art loving friends! Do you realize that we are a month away from the first day of Summer? I must confess that Summer is not my favorite season. I don't care too much for the humidity. I prefer Spring, Fall and Winter. Be that as it may, the cool thing about June 21st, the Summer Solstice, is that it has the longest amount of daylight hours of any day in the year, something appreciated by artists everywhere. Remember to tie your Corgis down on Midsummer's Eve, as it is a well known fact that the magical wee beasties can fly on this night. Be especially watchful of performance Corgis. They can be so fast that you may not even realize they have had a little adventure. Some of the younger ones may not be aware of their special powers yet, but if you find your older ones particularly tired the next morning and not wanting to leave the foot of your bed, you can bet they were out flying amidst their Corgi and faerie friends. Don't be too concerned about these night flights for your older Corgis. Beneath the greying fur on that face you know so well resides wisdom for the ages. You can see it in their eyes. They know what they are doing. They must fly in order to pass on the Corgi wisdom to the younger Corgis.

My latest painting is inspired by Ancient Egypt. My daughter is fascinated by everything from that time period. The things they were able to accomplish without technology as we know it today, amazes me. On the subject of 'daylight hours'....I know they used a sundial to tell time during the day. Did you know that they also used a water clock to tell time during the evening hours? Pretty cool. I have a feeling that Corgis would have used it for a drinking fountain, however, and everyone would be late for work the next morning!
