This post marks the end of my February Haiku (part of my Joy 365 project). This was more difficult than the January photos. I am already behind on March! I’m not sure what I will be doing with March yet. Stay tuned, and as always, thank you for reading and following The Tromp Queen!
25 Tues — First rehearsal with area HS students preparing for upcoming district solo/ensemble contests.
Singers prepare songs.
First run-through: a little shy.
Music minds the gaps.
26 Wed — Meet with photographer at Milwaukie’s Art Museum lobby to take head shots for my new job as MCC accompanist.
Hair, make-up, jewelry:
Head shots at Art Museum.
Carved marble profile?
27 Thurs — Driving across the state from east to west. Going through Pville en route to quilt retreat.
Driving Driftless roads
Passing bluish-white meadows
Trees and cows dot hills.
Tears rush to fill eyes.
I don’t live here anymore.
“Home” is elsewhere now.
Favorite coffee shop:
Time to chat with my dear friend.
Joyful day begins.
Next stop: Quilt Retreat.
Bound with stories, tools, advice,
Hugs, laughter, sorrows.
Souls and voices — we still hear.
Fabric soothes us all.
