Last Sanibel sketches

Shari Blaukopf's Sketchbook

No Sanibel sketchbook is complete without some shell sketches. After all, this is what the island is known for. This week we walked on beaches where the piles of shells were almost ankle deep.

When our boys were young we used to buy a postcard that listed the names and photos of the most common shells, and we’d make a game of trying to find all of them on our visits to the beach. These days I just try to find the most interesting shapes and sizes to sketch.

My last sketch of the vacation is a scene I’ve looked at every day through my window — the Sanibel Causeway that links the island to the mainland. It was a hard one to sketch because it’s a ways away and the details are very tiny, but putting the palm in front of it helped to add distance, I think.

Along a Country Road

Nuggets of Gold

“Take Me Home Country Roads…” is playing right now, which gave me the inspiration for this post.

If you were traveling along a road, where would you like it to take you to? Lovely  Cottonwood Trees line the road.  The whipporwill is singing as you walk and you hear the water flowing in the creek that runs along the side of the road.  There is a bend coming in the road. Do you turn left or right? What happens, what lies around the bend?

You tell me, and I will add to your adventure if you would like me to. For who really knows what lies around the bend? How many little adventures can we get? 🙂

The Lonely Author

from day one


Intoxicated on breast milk
I let out a little puke
ruining my favorite
baby loves mommy bib

Loving all the attention
I was never shy
about inviting babes
back to my crib

Soiling my diaper
Sticking out my tongue
I’ll pull your hair
just to have a little fun

Your mother warned you
About guys like me
For I’ve been a bad boy
From day one


Hope I made you smile.

Let us infect WordPress with great photography, sketches, fiction, news reports, artwork, and poetry. Perhaps, our enthusiam can spread love and inspiration throughout the world in 2019.

Quotations on Immigration

Don’t Miss This great post of historical quotes on immigration by great leaders in history!!

charles french words reading and writing

Given the political climate of the times, I thought I would offer some quotations from past leaders on the issue of immigration.



“It says something about our country that people around the world are willing to leave their homes and leave their families and risk everything to come to America. Their talent and hard work and love of freedom have helped make America the leader of the world. And our generation will ensure that America remains a beacon of liberty and the most hope fill society this world has ever known.”

                                                                     George W. Bush



“Our attitude towards immigration reflects our faith in the American ideal. We have always believed it possible for men and women who start at the bottom to rise as far as the talent and energy allow. Neither race nor place of birth should affect their chances.”

                                                                   Robert F. Kennedy

broken promises, promises

Be sure to come read this great poem!

the grey room

i already broke
promises i said
i wouldn’t make
like this one
and others i knew
would not be kept.

i hear them
tear themselves apart
landing at my feet
laying bare my hypocrisy
in a quiet showing of defeat

in the debris
i gather
permission to do
all the things i said
i wouldn’t be
and ignore the vows
i couldn’t keep.
