Five. Uh. Four.

Maple Leaf, originally uploaded by diahn.

Only four days left in my 30s. I've just realized that I share a birthday with John McCain. And Michael Jackson. I'm not sure what that means, but I'm sure it means something. Why can't I share a birthday with Georgia O'Keefe or Sue Monk Kidd?

Well - I do share with Ingrid Bergman. That's good. And Hurricane Katrina. That's bad.

I'll try to share some more fascinating birthday facts with you over the next four days. Aren't you never going to read again excited?

We went camping over the weekend and had a great time. I even found the energy to draw a few things here and there. Like this holy, or rather - hole-y leaf. It was very meditative and made me realize how long it has been since I have drawn anything at all. Time to tone up those sketching muscles again, I think.

I have a few more sketches to share with you over the week, as well.  But I'm going to leave you with this one by D.  He sat down right next to me while I was sketching the maple leaf, and decided to join in...
