This rare watermelon bird is flying on over to Karen Gilbert’s house. Karen makes beautiful jewelry see her work here.

Speaking of rare birds, have you heard Steve Martin’s Band? Their new album titled “Rare Bird Alert” is getting rave reviews. If you like the banjo and folk music, give a listen!

Landslide

title?
The title from a friend of mine who immediately thought of the song when he saw the painting:

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
‘Till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Even children get older
And I’m getting older too

Ah, take my love, take it down
Ah, climb a mountain and I turned around
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well, the landslide will bring it down
Oh, oh, the landslide will bring it down
