The LONG Weekend…

July 5, 2016

It was a crazy weekend. I should have known when the ravens started having loud conversations that something was coming. I had called the crickets from the lake for a drawing session, when Addison showed up, claiming that he was doing his part for Brexit… then bedlam broke out in the apartment. Addison went after the crickets, then the crickets chased the cast of Bellini’s Norma out the door. And this was before the fireworks outside started.


Addison, inspired by English essayist Joseph Addison (1672-1719)… can you see any resemblance? A hummingbird feather quill drops from the sky, will Addison follow his destiny and write, or will he raise havoc in the community? Portrait by Meredith Eliassen, 2016. Addison the Lizard Notecard

All I can say is that the ravens call things as they are… I had to call Lucky and his posse to restore order before the neighbors called the police. Last I heard Addison was turning on the charm with Miss Sally, but she has given her heart to another, unrequited. Sally, by the way, was not convinced by Addison’s British accent, she thinks he is from Eastend of Flagstaff judging by the for tricksters dancing on his back.
