Flamingo Friday!

I take Flamingos very seriously. -me

I’m probably still riding high from my little beach getaway last weekend, but in line with my passion for Florida flamingos, I’m inspired to make another little Flamingo Friday piece.

I can’t write much today because I have to save some brain and typing strength for writing in my Artist/Writer Residency at the Deering Estate at Cutler. I should be working on my poetry book called, Blueprint for a Sandcastle, but in the same way I get sucked in by my blogging, I’m completely engrossed in writing a novel.

I don’t know if I get sidetracked because of my tendency to procrastinate (adult ADHD thank you!) or if really, I’m simply afraid of failure, afraid that my poetry book will bomb or afraid that I won’t ever finish the novel and I will have wasted my time at the beautiful residency right on Florida’s coast (I have a view of the ocean from my desk).

Flamingos, Florida’s gem, are endangered. This is why I don’t see any at the Estate as I would have when it was owned by Mr. Charles Deering himself. I do see herons, parrots, manatees and more. Anyway, I am blogging again! I’ll stop here so I can put in some hours of “literary” writing– as the pros call it 🙂

But to celebrate Flamingo Friday once more, I leave you with some pics from last weekends little surf trip.

This is the little motel we stayed at, right on a quaint little surf spot.  I felt right home with the tropical Flamingo decor.

Flamingo love sticker

I picked this sweet sticker up at a local surf shop. I just recently got engaged, so I love how it’s a couple. I might put it on my car; I only have my alma maters represented, but maybe I should show off some flamingo?

Flamingo Friday fun fact: mawcaw parrots, like swans and many humans find a partner and stay loyal for life.
