j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

My teaser this Tuesday:

"Would you like a cup of tea?"
It was strange to be inside myself, walking steadily and rigidly past the fence, putting my feet down strongly but without hast that they might have noticed, to be inside and know that they were looking at me; I was hiding very far inside but I could hear them and see them still from one corner of my eye. I wished they were all lying there dead on the ground.

pg. 23, We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson

*My note:
I had to share this quote since I am really enjoying this book! I've been savoring each little bit. I love the atmosphere of it too. It's been a perfect read for this month.

I have no blog. I am blogless, so I will post mine here! I am reading Boy's will be Boy's by Meg Meeker. (hope non-fiction is ok!)

"The key thing is the simple thing: just resolve to spend more time with your sons, whether that time is filled with tension, argument, laughter or silence. All of it is important. Nothing replaces a life lived along side you, his mother or father, NOTHING. And don't be fooled into believing that you can be substituted, because you can't."

Hi! I'm coordinating the cheerleading for the read-a-thon this year. I can't find your e-mail address on your blog, so I'd love it if you sent me an e-mail (astripedarmchairATgmailDOTcom) so I can have it!
Thanks so much for signing up as a cheerleader! We're going to have lots of fun! :)

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
