|My line drawing to show my students.|
Jill and I had a beautiful walk on the beach. I was not interested in going, too tired, but Jill convinced me. I was so thankful I went because we ended up having the beach totally to ourselves. Big thanks to Jill. Everyone else was eating the meal to break the fast. I mean EVERYONE! Except one lone French couple and their dog. The tide was dead low and we saw clam shells and all sorts of pretty birds. I did not bring my camera. Remember, I didn't want to go. Again, I was renewed by God's beauty.
I have been spending the evening finishing a line drawing for a demo for the students. I put a golden wash on the photo, but I plan on using watercolor for a few washes on the drawing tomorrow. I'll try to post the final outcome.
The "Night of Power" came and went last night. Men were praying in the mosque tent most of the night. Three more days and nights of Ramadan, not that anyone is counting:-) It will be refreshing to see the women again. It is probably hard to understand what it is like walking around town with just men and children around. It seems different and a bit jarring each time we walk around after school
I am enjoying cooler nights and cool early mornings. I was thinking as I was setting up in my classroom this morning that is was a perfect temperature.
However, I am really homesick tonight. Here is a clip from what I hear at night below my window. It looks dark, it was, turn up the volume for the full effect.
