The Best 2015 Calendar on the Planet

QUITO – Some things take me a while. Like cleaning off my dresser.

Had I been a little more conscientious about tidiness, I wouldn’t have let half of March slip away before finding this beautiful calendar this afternoon that my friend Lisa left for me when she visited a few weeks ago.

As is clearly evident, she’s a fabulous painter. That mighty ceiba is probably my favorite work of hers; here, combined with words from Pablo Neruda, one of my favorite poets, will make moving into June from May very difficult.

Thanks SO much, Z! This will truly brighten each day.

If you’re not familiar with Lisa’s work, check out her website Playamart where she blogs about art and life on the Ecuadorian coast in Manabi where she’s now called home for several years. I’m really looking forward to finally visiting again next month.

      Truly is. If you’re not familiar with her work, check out her site when you get a chance.

    I blush; thank you for your kind words, Bob! Your post was an equal surprise!

    I had totally forgotten that I had left that little surprise where it would patiently await your attention! With the timing of your friend’s death, I think you stumbled upon it when you needed a smile.

    Until the next surprise!

      Next surprise? Is there another awaiting somewhere? 🙂
