I love this one. The diagonal strokes of the sky and the little owl and his mischeivous grin (at least that’s how I see it).
I see his grin that way too. The owls both have moons in their eyes as they think about moonland!
You have such a smiley blog. always a smile…love this!!! nice work an.fun to look at..have a wonderful week Elephant
Thank you Sherri – nice of you to tell me such kind things!
The answer for you is likely yes, I think you probably visit moonland!
I hehe I think so..smiles
Why, of course, I visit Moonland. I am a night owl. (Is there such a creature as a day owl????)
The owls I know are only out at night visiting Moonland!
What a HOOT! 😀 And I’m reading this on a Full Moon night….a ‘blue’ moon it is, I believe.
I found your lovely and fascinating site on a search for nursery rhymes (Hey Diddle Diddle….I think?). When I’m here, I feel like a kid.
So dear Hathi mere saathi (stands for “elephant my friend/companion” in Hindi), sending you a trunk-load of wishes to keep going!
Btw, thanks for the follow (I don’t post too often).
How very sweet! I send back “Hathi mere saathi” to you. I did post the Moonland illustration to match the full moon – it is something we all share and I think that unites us in a way – many things unite us but we ignore them. I like the moon – pretty much everyone can see it and we respond to it. Not much more beautiful than a great big full moon, and for some reason the blue moons intrigues us all!
Thank you for your kind words,
So true that simple things unite us and reflect or draw out our beauty. Listening to music does this for me but the moon’s universally available….no downloads needed! Toodles, Radhika
