“Once the ‘what’ is decided, the ‘how’ always follows. We must not make the ‘how’ an excuse for not facing and accepting the ‘what.'”
– Pearl S. Buck

Little Watercolor

Due to the huge winter storm blanketing our area, I may not get to my shop today.  So I dug into the paintings I have on my home computer and found Goldie.    You’ve seen her before, but it’s been 6 months and she wanted to come out again.  he he

I am just thrilled to have electricity!  The main punch from the storm missed us by only a few miles.  They got major ice!  I think today, we are supposed to get snow.  My home is at the bottom of a very steep 500 ft driveway, so chances are, I’ll have a three day weekend.  🙂

About Pearl S. Buck

Prolific American author Pearl S. Buck is best known for her 1931 novel, The Good Earth, which depicted peasant life in China; the book, published by the John Day Company, won the Pulitzer Prize. She was born in West Virginia in 1892, but her missionary parents raised her in China. She and her first husband lived in China until 1934, when they had to flee the political strife. She later divorced and married John Day’s publisher, Richard Walsh, in 1935. In 1938, she became the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature. By the time of her death in 1973, she had published over 70 books, including collections of stories, poetry, and children’s literature.
