Kay 1.0

Here's another bite size piece of Kay. Enjoy.

Kay 0.2

One simple drawing, a blueprint, brought my life crumbling to the ground. I didn’t know how involved my parents were in the fight for freedom. If I had I might have been prepared for that day; the day the men came.

“Mommy, what’s going on?” I was tired and wanted to go back to bed.

“Just hide in the closet, dear, in your secret spot, and don’t come out”

I went inside and moved a cardboard box. There was the tiny door that I, alone, could squeeze into. In I went and shut the door. I could hear my mother slide the box in front of it, covering it completely.

It was dark in the little cubby space. I had found this spot playing hide and seek. This time I was not hiding for play. I was hiding from someone, but whom, I did not know. It was quiet in the little space.

“Mommy, can I come out? Mommy?”

“Stay there and don’t make a sound. Your uncle will come for you.” Her reply came as a faint whisper. All was quiet again.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
