Good Morning Starshine

It occurs to me that my reluctance to post pictures due to a Google Adsense denial (for too many pics!?!), has kept me from posting as often as I would like. For a looong time, a year maybe, I've refrained from posting ANY pics at all.

Screw that. I like posting pictures.

This morning, smoke haze from the fires in Oregon, Utah, Montana and Idaho, was so thick in the valley that the sun rose red in the east.

Eerie, yes?

In the south, Texas is floundering in water from last week's pounding by Hurricane Harvey, while Irma has been upgraded to a Category 4 hurricane, as she roars her way toward Puerto Rico, the Bahamas and Florida.

Prayers to all.

Yesterday, the sun rose clear and crystal, peering over the neighbor's roof to kiss my patio garden. It brought to mind a song from my youth, Good Morning Starshine.

Sunkissed Snapdragons, September 2017
Good morning, Starshine. The earth says hello.

Sunkissed Snapdragons and Pumpkin Vines
You twinkle above us, we twinkle below.

Late Summer Sunflower
Good morning, Starshine. You lead us along,

Late Sunflowers and Snapdragons
My love and me as we sing, our early morning singing song.

Early Morning September Sun, Treasure Valley, Idaho
Sing boop doopty, diddy oddy oopty,
La la, lo lo
Saba soobie saba, doobie aba daba,
Li li, lo lo
Doobie oobie walla,
Oobie abba dalla
Early morning singing song.

Hehehe, yes, those last verses were my rendition, NOT the actual lyrics.

Just saying.

Good Morning Starshine was sung by Oliver for the hit musical Hair.

I hope everyone in the US has enjoyed the long Labor Day weekend. I got some editing done on Book 2, AWEN STORM, and plan to spend tomorrow writing several new scenes for the closing third of the book.

Happy September!

P.S. My projected completion date for the first draft of AWEN STORM is the end of September. And yes, I need all the luck, prayers, and well wishes you have to offer, to get me there.
