A story of unkindness and murder

'Birds of a Feather' Neckpiece, 20" sterling silver,
 colored pencil, paper, glass lens, onyx beads;
Kathleen Faulkner

A shrewdness of apes
An exaltation of larks
A battery of barracudas
A troop of monkeys
A kaleidoscope of butterflies
A parliament of owls
A quiver of cobras
An ostentation of peacocks
A murder of crows
A rookery of penguins
A convocation of eagles
A prickle of porcupines
A charm of finches
An unkindness of ravens
A skulk of foxes
A shiver of sharks
A troubling of goldfish
A pod of whales
A smack of jellyfish
A descent of woodpeckers
A mob of kangaroos
A zeal of zebras

It rains.  The wind blows and  
we lose our light as the days grow shorter.

It is a good time to make some art.

and another..

'High Tide' 12x12"  oil and soft pastel, charcoal, medium;

The big lesson I'm learning this Fall is, yes, everything really does change.  Nothing stays the same.  The only constant Is change.

This can be a hopeful reality.  Maybe things will change for the better.
