I was up late last night finishing the last of Stieg Larsson's trilogy, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I couldn't put it down, so I stayed up until I finished it. By then I was wide awake, so I carved a nighthawk... it seemed appropriate and it relaxed me. The drawing is more approximate than exact; call it artistic licence.

I'll be going to the library to return the book and ferret out more to read. I am so grateful for our library system.

  3. I’m with you there...I “order” books online, reserve them and just wait for a phone call and go and get them...I love books and need something wonderful to read at all times.

  4. A great carving job! I wonder what the significance or symbolism of the night hawk would be??
