All knowing, ever present.

  1. Your ladies always have such lively expressions. This one is serious. Must be because of the teacher in her. Or is it the Raven in her??

  2. i always think you are so fortunate to have such a wise guide.

    i think this especially when i see a skunk waddling down commercial street in provincetown and wonder what the message is for me :^)

    i like the way this woman's lower lip protrudes just a bit, lo. she thinks.

    love always

  4. Love the blue mood! Keep thinking I'd like some streaks in my hair but it could never look as wonderful as this does. Love that Raven too - you always translate them so very well. x

    1. Why thank you, Ms. Minerva. You'd look wonderful with a hint of blue, but I know you already have that happening when you stand in just the right light ;)

  16. Nice one, Laurel! I love the blue-hair touch: blue like light of a certain angle shining on coal-black raven wings. And chalkboards. What is it about chalkboards that excites me...? Can't figure it out, but one of these days, I'm going to have one of those doors or walls painted with black (or green!) chalkboard paint!
