But I am just too excited to wait and share “may we always sit in awe of others’ differings”. Watching this idea come to life after discovering and being inspired by the tiny family of mice that moved into our empty beehive in October is simply magical. I am so thrilled to report that the lilliputian family is still well and thriving all nestled in their bed of twigs and leaves with a very healthy stash of acorns in their bee-utiful new home!
‘may we always sit in awe of others’ differings!’

I am but the star dust that tumbles
I am but the twig that snaps beneath your umbels
I am but the gentle breeze that rustles inside the leafless trees
And yet, I am all this if only you believe.
I have such exciting news to share with you all! I have started the painting portion of the already written… Curious Stories of Thimble Tarn… it will be written and illustrated by me, Anastasia Traina ~2015 http://wp.me/p22olG-q8
Dearest MayMay spinning Spring,
See how she loves all the living things.
She spins the sky such a marvelous French blue,
Yes, I have heard it said, and I believe it’s true.
With each spin that is spun, a fairy’s wish she hath done!
