“Happy Accidents” watercolor by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Turn mistakes into happiness

Let your creativity flow free

Let those mishaps bring joy

Turn errs into success

Then you’ll be happy

With life’s work

When all is

Said and



What I love about watercolor is that a lot of happy accidents occur.

    1. Thanks Diane this was a fun painting to do. 😊
      A Nonet poem is a nine line poem. First line has 9 syllables, second line 8 syllables, and so on down to the last line which is 1 syllable. It can rhyme or not and can be about any subject.

      1. I’ll have to give it a try sometime. I had wanted to have another blog post written by now. I have the audio recording done, but can’t seem to get around to doing the written part. I had to go to the post office yesterday and it was the first time I have ben in a store since before the lock-down. It felt rather strange actually.

      2. Oh wow first time in so many months sure would seem strange.
        A lot of things have changed in my area since the quarantine.
        Things are opening up again here, the social distancing safety measures are still in force but at least we can go out and about more.

      3. We are allowed in Ontario at least to open churches this Sunday with up to 30% capacity. But from what I can discover online, most churches will not be opening for at least a couple of weeks yet so they can be ready with all the regulations. Hairdressers, malls, chiropractors, physio clinics can open as of this Friday. Of course, with all restrictions in place. The really stupid thing is that doctors are still not allowed to see patients in their clinics. I sometimes wonder who makes up all these rules and where they get their ideas from.
