Today I post in celebration: to creation, to serendipity, to art, and to the friendships that form within the kinship of nature.

I met a fellow blogger today, a true renaissance woman and an artist of absolutely unfathomable talent. We, both Oklahomans for the moment, are drawn together by birds and blogs, the lure of distant places, and our deep connection to the natural world.

I don't ever remember being as overwhelmed by pure, raw, genius talent as I was today. Her sketches, drawings, prints and paintings inspire unbridled rapture. I am still reeling from the breathless, visual stimulation of her prolific creation and I am so grateful that she gave up her time today to share that with me. She has a keen eye for beauty and has created a life to match there in the cross-timbered hills of Oklahoma.

So to you maestro-- thank you so much for one of the most beautiful afternoons I've had in a long time and certainly the most fantastic afternoon since moving back. The color you bring to the world is a remarkable gift; the light you hold within is patient and kind.

I hope there is a little room on your canvas of time to sketch me in -- and I look forward to future adventures in the beautiful outdoors and rolling hills of our Oklahoma.

For those of you not already familiar with Debby Kaspari's work, take a moment to visit her website and feast your eyes on just a minuscule sample of what she can do. Her art is genius and her creativity knows no boundaries.

Also visit her very creative blog, Drawing the Motmot.
