When sketching those advanced in years,

You’ll find the need to switch gears.

Placing a wrinkle here and there,

Gives your sketch the needed flair.

Happy Birthday to Me!

In case you’re wondering, I am not 60 –  nor am I turning 40 today.  I AM grateful for celebrating another birthday and for having the support of my wonderful husband, my family and my friends.  (Oh, and there’s that sense of humor thing, as well.  I’m very grateful for that, too!)

The shiny black hue,

Of her asymmetrical ‘do,

Complimented a face,

Studious in it’s grace.
