Asia Meets West

In which I present two things –

First... my new header and blog background! I am so happy—no, overjoyed is the better word—with this whole design. The action in the painting portrays almost exactly that to which I aspire, and the scenery—! What more need be said? It looks almost exactly like some of the land I saw on our travels to the western side of Yellowstone a couple summers ago and, though I dearly love nearly all the west, that place has remained particularly close to me. And someday, I hope we shall meet again.

Second... my “Around the World in 365 Days Challenge” tribute to Tibet and “Lost Horizon” and Asian art in general (as the drawing was inspired by the embroidery on my kimono).


  1. LOVE the new header! Very cool.

    "Lost Horizon" is on my to-read list. I'll get there one of these days!

    1. I am glad you like it, Hamlette! I think it is my favorite header yet. :) "LH" is a riveting read, in a dreamy kind of way, and I would love to hear what you think about it!

    2. I'm sure at such time as I read it, I'll be posting a review. I have it in this awesome old book -- three James Hilton novels collected in one! It has "Lost Horizon," "Goodbye, Mr. Chips," and "Random Harvest." So far I've only read RH.

  2. Great header and background! The mountains are so beautiful in the header picture. :)


I don't want to say good-bye
