Let’s Go Fly a Dog

Dear Friends,

“…When you send it flyin’ up there
All at once you’re lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze…”

For the last several weeks, whenever I walk Rocky the German Shepherd I imagine him as a great, flying dog-kite. I allow him lots of leash and imagine him flying against the sky. Without question, the tune Let’s Go Fly a Kite enters my brain and try as I might it won’t dislodge. I continue singing Mary Poppins’ tunes for at least an hour after that. I’m hoping this image created today cleanses live dog kites from my mind…out wicked spirit, out!!!

Perhaps, the paper crawling up my studio walls is taking over my thought processes…

studioAnyone up for a cleaning party 😉

Thank you and goodnight. May you dream of kites as they should be – airborne in colorful rhythm with the infinite sky…

  1. I’m much more concerned for the THINGY that is flying the kite! Is this image a type of AnnMarie? Tuppence Tuppence Tuppence a bag….Now I’m singing Mary Poppins! Thanks again.


    • You know after a glass of wine anything is possible – though that permutation of my inner was created while sipping coffee 😉
      Feed the Birds, is my favorite song in the batch. The little, old woman sitting on the church steps always makes me wish I could sit by her and sprinkle seed…and you’re welcome for the head tune 😉 Now jump into a sidewalk chalk dream this evening and sleep well 🙂


    • Hey, I wrote a whole long response and it didn’t go through. I’m rewriting but I don’t think it will be as clever
      Music has always been a huge part of my life, especially musicals, the words stick in my head and won’t ever leave. Geez, I wish math worked that way. This week the music seems to be pushing me around and entering many parts of my writing.
      I adore Mary Poppins too. I’m sure you, Fawn love as I do, the merry-go-round scene. I can’t pass by a carousel without wishing desperately the horse leap off and gallop across a meadow with me astride, of course…it’s a lovely dream, isn’t it 🙂

  2. You have a wonderful creative space, AnnMarie! I envy you all that wall space and that wood table. Of course, your drawing is terrific (love that “we are here” theme).


    • I love my studio though I must be careful, I’m slowly crowding myself out of it…
      Thanks for liking my little theme. I like it too. It reminds me that we’re all in this together. I hope to use it from here on in and someday maybe teeshirts!
      AnnMarie 🙂
      oh, yes, miss while I have your attention, I’m nominating you for a Lovely Blog Award. Post going up today.


    • Gosh, hi there Ron. Yes, ’tis my artwork. I like all things monsterish and sometimes this scares people and worries my family 😉 I’m in the throws of a mild blog redesign where my art can be seen in a pulldown menu. For now, if you’d like to see more – I use my art in just about all of my posts…
      You have a great day! Angels are fun things to be (excluding the ones who wear sexy underwear, they take their job way too seriously – they don’t smile much ;-))
      AnnMarie 🙂


      • I haven’t heard but I will check out Mr. Thorn as I love to see/hear new artists and their work – so much talent on this planet…
        You have a wonderful day as well – happy weekend – I just remembered it’s friday!
        AnnMarie 🙂


      • Hi there Ron,
        Just listened to Paul Thorn’s music – I like his southern soulful – albeit rock-out sound. His artwork is folksy with almost a playfulness about it until one gets in close and sees all the goings-on – fascinating. I watched a bit of an interview where he stated the large breasted character on his CD cover was a man. He explained that he has 2 daughters and wouldn’t put a topless woman on the cover – interesting guy 🙂


      • I most certainly appreciate you taking the time to check him out. He’s an odd amalgam of roadhouse crooner, backslidden Pentecostal preacher’s kid, and epic lyricist.

        Glad you gave him a thought!


    • One must be strong like bull to bear one side of the yoke and speed the plow ever-forward…:-)
      Management must bear the other side, lest the yolk collapse…
      Your tuesday, my friday, as long as it’s a day with a beginning and en end 🙂 make it a good one…


  3. Hi Lovely daughter…all your blogs are wonderful…I finally did get in..I hope I can do it again tomorrow…woe is me and this computer…I loved the piece on Max…what a nice grandson to have..we are so lucky…your sketches are amazing!!! Talk to you soon..Love, Mom
