Because I worked all day on other things involving Namir, and for the most part my cats were stretched out wherever they could find a cool spot as they have been for days, here is an acrylic painting I did of Namir several years ago. Normally, I’m pretty linear with

Daily Photo Reprise: But, Soft! What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?

It is the east, and Mademoiselle Daisy Emerald is the sun.* . . . . . . . So sorry, Mr. Shakespeare, to use lines from your play, but my ebony love, with eyes of emerald and the name of a precious flower lives far up the hill from me,
