I wake on my birthday to furious wind buffeting the tree outside my place. It's not yet five am. There are no other sounds. All quiet except for the hum of the computer and intermittant sounds of the soft scraping of leaves being blown on the concrete pavement. I've had most of the coffee in the pot, well, one more half cup this time without milk. I've lived this sixty-three years as authentically as I could with the intention to do no harm and to give back more than I receive. I have no plans to celebrate & look forward to a future that is, I hope, extra-ordinarily extraordinary.

In support of my niece Kathryn Wright who is living with breast cancer I am donating one of the drawings I completed last year for TEAM KATH Mothers Day Classic in Bendigo. If you are on Face Book you can make a bid. Entitled *Woman of the Sea*, it was drawn with Faber Castell Aquarelle & Derwent color pencils on Arches 300gsm, 100% cotton rag; its unframed size is 29 X 42 cm (A3 sized paper). The drawing will go to the highest bidder over the next two weeks and will be sent to them (within Victoria, Australia) by Registered Post.

This is the sixth drawing I've done in a series on Succulents. This one from my garden bloomed last week and sported glorious pink and white flowers, unfortunately three days of rain ruined the flowers. Like the others, this drawing was made with Prismacolor pencils on A3, 185gsm Arches Watercolor, 100% cotton rag. Other pencils drawings completed end of 2013 and 2014 may be found at this link.
