One Word Sunday Challenge: MOBILE/MOBIL

The theme for this week’s One Word Sunday Challenge is MOBILE/MOBIL.

Without further ado, her mobile/mobil pictures:

(1) Bird in flight

(2) Alexander Calder mobiles in the recent Calder/Picasso exhibit at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

Life in Colour: Silver

Self has many white flowers, so for this challenge, hosted by Jude on Travel World Blog, she will push herself to look for SILVER:

  • Silver is a precious metal, indicating wealth. “Born with a silver spoon in your mouth”. A cool colour. Sparkling silver water. The light of the moon. It represents feminine energy, pure, emotional and sensitive.

Her MacBook Air is silver. She’s had three MacBook Airs, but this one she’s had the longest (five years)

Here is Alexander Calder’s “Fish.” Self was lucky enough to attend the Picasso/Calder exhibit at the de Young Museum in March, almost as soon as it re-opened:

March was also when self took her first road trip post-pandemic. She went to Sacramento, to visit the Crocker. She stayed in an Airbnb in an old house that used to be a laundry. For reading material (and she ALWAYS) has reading material, she brought Douglas Stuart’s novel, Shuggie Bain. The room she stayed in was white, the bedspread was white, and the book had a black-and-white (well, more like silver) cover.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

April 25 BRIGHT SQUARES

Self hasn’t missed a day in April! Here’s how to join:

Post anything that’s

sparkling, polished, shining, clever, cheerful, colourful, astute, brilliant, sunny, glorious, translucent, distinct and clear

But whatever you post has to be in the shape of a square. Get inspired by the galleries on The Life of B.

Today, a gallery of Calders from the Calder/Picasso exhibit at the de Young Museum, Golden Gate Park. Photo # 3 is Calder’s homage to Josephine Baker. LOOOVE the fish.

’twas a memorable exhibit. Going on at the same time as the Frida Kahlo.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
