AND SHE PROCEEDS TO TELL 'WEDNESDAY' THAT SHE DOESN'T BELONG IN A FISHBOWL BUT IN THE SEA.

Tooting my horn for 'Whale in a Fishbowl' by author Troy Howell







Once in a while a children's book comes out which knocks all other children's books out of the water...no pun intended here folks...as this book is about a whale in captivity.

Wednesday, is a whale, who lives in a huge fishbowl in the heart of a city.  She is visited by a little girl who tells the whale that it doesn't belong in a fishbowl but in the sea!

Whale in a Fishbowl is an endearing tale, or tail, as one would have it, about a whale who makes a huge leap!

The illustrations are by Richard Jones, which are the perfect artwork for the tale.

This is a newly released children's book, and I know the author personally, as he is my brother, who has been in the professional art and author media for over 25 years, as the publicists have agreed this book was chosen as the BEST book of the month on Amazon.books. in the month of May 2018.

This may just be the next most popular children's book to be published, hoping to match the fame of Goodnight Moon, and Where the Wild Things Are. 

In the book stores, Whale in a Fishbowl copies are flying off the shelves, making a huge leap into the minds of children and adults, alike!

To visit Troy Howell's blog which his most recent post talks all about the book:
Please go to: troyhowelletc.com/blog.html

Thanks so very much!

After you read Troy's synopsis, on his blog, about the book, there is a link directly below that post which links to Whale in a Fishbowl on Amazon.books.com

Or, please, go to your nearest favorite bookstore to order or purchase the book.

WOW! IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG SINCE I HAVE POSTED!

MY GOODNESS!!!

'WHERE SHALL I BEGIN?'  OKAY, THAT IS THE FIRST LINE OF 'LOVE STORY' THE SONG...

BUT, AH, ME THINKS LIFE IS MORE THAN JUST A LOVE STORY, AND I HAVE NEVER BELIEVED THE LINE IN THE MOVIE WHICH SAID: "BEING IN LOVE IS NEVER HAVING TO SAY I'M SORRY"...

SAYING I'M SORRY TAKES PASSION, AND HUMBLENESS.  TO LOVE IS DIVINE BUT TO FORGIVE IS FOREVERNESS....

OPHELIA

I DO LIKE FINE ART...AND THE STORY OF OPHELIA IS POIGNANT TO FORGIVENESS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE I AM GOING WITH THIS LINE OF THOUGHT, MAYBE IT IS JUST TO SHARE SOME PASSIONATE ART! WHICH IS WHAT MY BLOG IS REALLY ALL ABOUT!

A VERY RARE TAPESTRY

I DO LOVE UNICORNS! THOSE ENCHANTING BEASTS OF BEAUTY, WHOSE HORNS BRING HEALING TO THOSE WHO ARE TOUCHED CARESSINGLY BY THEM.

ALICE MIXED MEDIA ART AND CHEMTRAILS...

HELLO EVERYONE!
IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I DID A BLOG POST.
LIFE HAS BEEN A WHIRLWIND OF BUZY-NESS, ALMOST LIKE I WAS IN A VORTEX TO THE LAND OF OZ, ALTHOUGH I WOULD PREFER WONDERLAND!

IN JULY WAS THE MAD TEA PARTY WHERE I SHARED SOME SNAP-SHOTS OF MY ALICE IN WONDERLAND MIXED MEDIA PIECE.

I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH MY CAMERA AS THE PHOTOS DID NOT COME OUT VERY CLEARLY.  SO HERE IS ANOTHER PHOTO OF THE MY MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE I CREATED JUST BECAUSE I ADORE ALL THINGS ALICE!

PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR A LARGER VIEW. THE ENTIRE PIECE IS 16 INCHES BY 22 INCHES.
IT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE CREATING THIS COLLAGE' OUT OF COPYRIGHT FREE IMAGES FROM A YAHOO SEARCH.   I TOOK MY TIME CREATING THIS COLLAGE' DURING OUR VERY HOT SUMMER MONTHS.  I WOULD ADD SNIPPETS OF ALICE IN VARIOUS ESCAPADES WHIST IN HER JOURNEY THROUGH WONDERLAND.  I WANTED TO ACHIEVE A COHESIVE WHOLE WHICH TAKES THE EYE THROUGH A VISUAL VISTA OF WHIMSICAL DESIGN.  I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS AS WE KNOW THE CREATIVE SPIRIT TAKES CONTROL AT TIMES AND GUIDES THE ARTIST THROUGH A MAZE OF INSIGHT WHICH SEEMS TO BE PLUGGED INTO THE UNIVERSE CONFIRMING THE AH! HA! MOMENT OF COMPLETION.

AND NOW ON TO PHENOMENON WHICH HAS BEEN QUITE DISTURBING FOR SOME TIME.  WHEN I FIRST LEARNED ABOUT CHEM TRAILS I DIDN'T THING TO MUCH ABOUT THE INFORMATION I WAS READING.  SURE, 'THEY' WHOEVER 'THEY' IS, WERE CREATING CLOUD FORMATIONS AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD RAIN AND SOMETIMES IT DID NOT.

I FOUND A GEOENGINEERING SITE WITHIN THE PAST TWO WEEKS, AND THE SITE IS ASTOUNDING AS TO JUST HOW SOPHISTICATED THIS TECHNOLOGY IS.

HERE IS ONE LOOK AT THE CLOUD FORMATION FROM JUST TWO DAYS AGO HERE IN OUR CENTRAL VALLEY CITY, IN CALIFORNIA. THIS CLOUD FORMATION BEGAN IN THE WEST, AND PROGRESSED EAST, BECOMING WIDER AND SPREADING OUT IN A 'FAN' FORMATION.  THESE ARE NOT 'NORMAL' CLOUD FORMATIONS.  YOU WILL NOT FIND THESE IN A DESCRIPTION OF NORMAL CLOUD FORMATIONS.  IT IS BECAUSE THE MAGNETIZED PARTICLES IN THE CLOUDS MOISTURE ARE BEING CONTROLLED NOT BY THE WIND OR BY NATURE, BUT  SOPHISTICATED, ELECTROMAGNETIC DESIGN.


THIS PHOTO IS FROM MY OWN CAMERA AIMED AT THE WEST.  THE CLOUD FORMATION IS FLOWING SLOWLY TOWARDS THE EAST.  THESE ARE NOT NORMAL CLOUD FORMATIONS.

IN THE PHOTO YOU CAN SEE A RIFT CUTTING ACROSS THE CLOUDS, AND A VERY STRANGE DARKER OVAL SHAPE ON THE RIGHT CENTER SIDE OF THE PHOTO.

THE BIZARRE THING ABOUT IT ALL, WAS, THIS DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN ONE TIME WITH THE SAME, EXACT, CLOUD FORMATIONS, IT REPEATED ITSELF AT LEAST FIVE TIMES, FLOWING AND ENDING, AND FLOWING AND ENDING, AGAIN AND AGAIN, WITH A BRIEF INTERVAL, BUT ALWAYS IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE IN THE SKY.  NO CLOUD FORMATION EVER REPEATS ITSELF LIKE THAT, EVER.  DO YOU SEE WHAT I AM SAYING?

THESE CLOUDS ARE GEOENGINEERED.  PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE SITE WHICH I GIVE THE LINK FOR:

GEO-ENGINEERING OF CLOUDS

I HOPE THIS LINK WORKS AS YOU WILL BE ASTOUNDING AND BEWILDERED AT THE SAME TIME THAT SUCH EXACT SCIENTIFICALLY PRODUCED CLOUDS CAN BE CREATED.

WE ARE LIVING IN VERY SOPHISTICATED TIMES AS FAR AS THE GENERATION OF THINGS ONLY RAY BRADBURY AND OTHER SCIENCE FICTION AUTHORS USED TO ONLY DREAM OF.

SO, WITH THAT, I WILL LEAVE YOU TO YOUR OWN WANDERINGS IN YOUR MIND WHETHER IT BE IN WONDERLAND, OR IN THE REAL WORLD, ALL MAY NOT BE AS IT SEEMS.

WELCOME! TO THE 9TH ANNUAL MAD TEA PARTY!!!

HERE IT IS! THE 9TH ANNUAL MAD TEA PARTY, JULY 23rd, 2016, HOSTED BY LOVELY VANESSA VALENCIA AT HER AMAZING BLOG 'A FANCIFUL TWIST' !!!  PLEASE CLICK ON THE LEFT SIDE-BAR LINK FOR MORE MAD TEA PARTY PARTICIPANTS!!!

IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I AM PARTICIPATING, YET AGAIN, WITH SO MANY OTHER KINDRED SPIRIT TEA PARTY GOERS FOR THE MAD TEA PARTY !!!

ON WITH THE SHOW!!!

ALICE FOUND HERSELF CAPTIVATED (LITERALLY) IN A MIXED-MEDIA ALICE IN WONDERLAND ADVENTURE!

HERE IS ALICE, CONTEMPLATING HERSELF AS SHE TAKES AN ADVENTURE THROUGH WONDERLAND. 
ALICE FINDS HERSELF ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF WONDERLAND, IN A GARDEN AND WHO DOES SHE SPY FIRST, BUT THE CATERPILLAR WHO ASKS HER 'WHO ARE YOU?'

ALICE HARDLY KNOWS WHAT TO SAY TO THE CATERPILLAR.  SHE SAYS 'WELL, I HARDLY KNOW SIR, WHO I AM!'


THE CATERPILLAR TELLS HER TO TAKE ONE BITE OF THE MUSHROOM TO HELP HER ON HER WAY THROUGH WONDERLAND.

ALICE TAKES A BITE OF THE MUSHROOM AND SAYS TO HERSELF 'I DON'T REMEMBER TEA PARTIES WHERE YOU ATE MAGIC MUSHROOMS!  THEN SHE SEES THAT THE CATERPILLAR HAS TRANSFORMED INTO A BLUE BUTTERFLY WHO TELLS HER TO GO VISIT THE WHITE RABBIT.

"CURIOUSER, AND CURIOUSER," SAYS ALICE.  "I IMAGINE THE NEXT THING I SHALL BE SEEING IS A WHITE RABBIT IN A WAIST-COAT!"


AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT ALICE SEES.  THE WHITE RABBIT SEES HER AND THINKS SHE IS HIS SERVANT.  THE WHITE RABBIT SAYS TO ALICE "WHY! MARY ANN! YOU MUST GO INTO MY HOUSE AND GET MY FAN AND MY GLOVES THIS INSTANT!"  ALICE REPLIES "I BEG YOUR PARDON? I AM NOT MARY ANN".  THE WHITE RABBIT DEMANDS THAT SHE GETS HIS THINGS FOR HIM SO SHE HAS NOTHING BETTER TO DO, SO SHE GOES INTO HIS HOUSE.
IN THE MEAN TIME, ALICE TAKES ANOTHER BITE OF THE MUSHROOM WHILE SHE IS LOOKING FOR THE WHITE RABBIT'S GLOVES AND FAN, AND SHE BEGINS TO GROW LARGER.

ALICE FINDS HERSELF GROWING SO HUGE THAT ONE OF HER HANDS STICKS OUT OF THE TOP STORY WINDOW!  SHE IS VERY DISTRESSED.  THE WHITE RABBIT SEES THE HAND STICKING OUT AND BEGINS THROWING ROCKS AT ALICE'S HAND.  WHEN THE ROCKS FLY INTO THE WINDOW AND ON TO THE FLOOR INSIDE THE HOUSE, THEY TURN INTO LITTLE CAKES WHICH SAY 'EAT ME' ON THEM.  ALICE DECIDES TO EAT ONE AND SHE BEGINS TO SHRINK VERY RAPIDLY.
ALICE SNEAKS OUT THE FRONT DOOR OF THE WHITE RABBIT'S HOUSE AND SEES A SIGN THAT READS: THIS WAY.  ALICE DECIDES TO FOLLOW THE SIGN AND ENDS UP AT THE MAD TEA PARTY!!! YAY!!!

ALICE IS SOON SWEPT UP IN THE MAD TEA PARTY WITH THE MAD HATTER, THE MARCH HARE, AND THE DORMOUSE.  IT IS PURE INSANITY! SHE NEVER GETS TO DRINK ANY TEA AS THEY KEEP SAYING TO HER 'MOVE DOWN! NO ROOM! MOVE DOWN!'  SHE DECIDES TO LEAVE THE MAD TEA PARTY AND FOLLOWS THE BLACK AND WHITE CHESS BOARD PATH.
SOON ALICE SEES TWO VERY CURIOUS BROTHERS.  THEY ARE TWEEDLE DEE AND TWEEDLE DUM. 


THESE TWO BROTHERS DECIDE TO HAVE A BATTLE AND ALONG COMES A MONSTROUS CROW AND SCARES THE PAIR AWAY.

ALICE DECIDES TO FOLLOW ANOTHER PATH THAT SAYS "THAT WAY".  SHE ENDS UP IN TULGEY WOOD AND FINDS AN EXTRAORDINARY KNIGHT RIDING ALONG ON HIS STEED.  HE HAPPENS TO BE STANDING ON A CHESS BOARD ON THE SQUARE FOR KNIGHTS. 

ALICE IS INTRIGUED BY THE  KNIGHT AND ASKS HIM IF SHE CAN FOLLOW HIM ALONG THE CHESS BOARD  AS SHE INTENDS TO BECOME QUEEN ALICE.  THE KNIGHT OBLIGES AND SAYS THAT SHE CAN FOLLOW HIM. BUT HE TELLS HER TO BEWARE OF THE JABBERWOCKY!!!


ALICE HIDES BEHIND A TREE WHEN SHE SEES THE JABBERWOCKY.  THE KNIGHT IS NOW NOWHERE TO BE SEEN.  ALICE DECIDES TO GO THROUGH A DOOR IN A TREE AND SHE FINDS THE CHESHIRE CAT.
ALICE BEGINS TELLING THE CHESHIRE CAT THAT SHE CANNOT FIND HER WAY HOME.  HE TELLS HER TO BE CAREFUL WHEN SAYING 'HER WAY' AS ALL WAYS HERE ARE 'THE RED QUEEN'S WAYS!'


IT IS ALWAYS 3 O'CLOCK IN WONDERLAND!
ALICE SAYS 'OH! STUFF AND NONSENSE! I HAVE SEEN NO RED QUEEN HERE!' THE CHESHIRE CATS SAYS 'I CAN DIRECT YOU TO THE QUEENS'S GARDEN.  WOULD YOU LIKE THAT?' ALICE DECIDES TO GO TO THE QUEEN'S GARDEN AS THERE MAY BE A PATH SOMEWHERE WHICH WILL LEAD HER HOME.
ALICE FINDS THE RED QUEEN AND PROMPTLY DECIDES TO NOT EVEN TALK TO HER.  SHE SEES THE DUTCHESS AND PLAYS CROCHET FOR A WHILE AS THEY WALK HAND IN HAD.
ALICE IS BEGINNING TO NOT SEE STRAIGHT WITH ALL OF THIS WANDERING AROUND.  SHE WOULD LIKE TO FIND THE REAL MAD TEA PARTY, BUT BEFORE SHE CAN TURN AROUND, ALL OF THE RED QUEEN'S CARDS COME FLYING AT HER.
ALICE KNOWS THAT IT IS PERPETUALLY 3 O'CLOCK IN WONDERLAND, SO SHE KNOWS SHE STILL HAS TIME TO VISIT ANOTHER MAD TEA PARTY.













AS ALICE IS LEAVING WONDERLAND SHE SPIES THE RED KING WHO IS SNEAKING OUT OF WONDERLAND WITH THE CHRONOSPHERE TO TRY AND CHANGE THE TIME IN WONDERLAND BACK TO NORMAL, WHATEVER NORMAL IS IN WONDERLAND!!!



 ALICE FINDS HER WAY BACK TO HER OWN HOUSE AND READS HER MAD TEA PARTY INVITATION.

SHE FINDS HER HONORARY INVITATION TO THE MAD TEA PARTY WHICH SHE HAD SET ON HER DINING ROOM HUTCH.

SO, OFF ALICE GOES! SHE IS DONE WITH THE NONSENSE OF WONDERLAND FOR THE DAY! SHE WANTS TO SEE SOME REAL TEA SETS AND DRINK SOME REAL TEA WHICH DOESN'T MAKE HER GROW TALL OR GROW SMALL.
ALICE BEGINS SEEING MORE CATS THEN SHE CAN COUNT! (THIS SCULPEY SCULPTURED CAT IS MADE BY REKNOWNED CLAY ARTIST, JOHN ANDERSON).

THE CAT-IN-THE-HAT SHOWS UP FOR THE MAD TEA PARTY.  I MEAN, AFTER ALL, ISN'T HE ONE OF THE CRAZIEST CATS AROUND!?

OLD MOTHER HUBBARD IS THERE AND ASKS ALICE IF SHE WOULD LIKE SOME COMFORTING CHAMOMILE TEA TO SETTLE HER NERVES AFTER BEING IN WONDERLAND.  ALICE RESPONDS WITH 'I DO BELIEVE I WOULD LIKE SOME CHAMOMILE TEA!' 'THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH!'

A VERY SWEET KITTY TEA POT SERVES ALICE HER TEA.

AS ALICE SIPS HER TEA, SHE BEGINS TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE TEA PARTY.  SHE WALKS AROUND THE LOUNGE, AND DINING ROOM AREA, SEEING ALL OF THE AMAZING TEA POTS AND TEA CUPS AND SAUCERS, AND MANY CHARMING CREATURES AND DOLLS WHO HAVE COME TO THE MAD TEA PARTY.
THERE ARE MANY TEA SETS FULL OF ALL TYPES OF TEAS.


AND MORE TEA SETS.....
AND VERY FANCY JOHNSON BROTHERS ROSE TEA SETS.....

AND TEA CUPS AND SAUCERS ALL OVER THE PLACE!

ALICE IS SO DELIGHTED WITH THE MAD TEA PARTY!!!


ALICE SEES WEDNESDAY ADDAMS, (BY MARINA LENZ) AND MUNCHKINS, AND A WUMBWEE (BY FLORA THOMPSON)
THERE ARE ALSO PRIM AND PROPER LADIES AT THE MAD TEA PARTY.  AND A TINY WHITE RABBIT EATING A CARROT! AND A SMALL TERRIER TO KEEP IT COMPANY.

'OH!' SAID ALICE 'THIS IS MUCH BETTER THAN BEING WITH THE RED QUEEN AND HER 'OFF WITH HER HEAD' SCENARIO! ALTHOUGH IT DOES APPEAR THAT SOME OF THE DOLLS HAVE LOST THEIR BODIES!

THERE IS EVEN A TINY TEA POT AND TINY CUPS AND SAUCERS, AND BIRDS, OWLS, AND CLAY KITTENS MADE FROM PINK, AND WHITE CLAY.

ALICE WAS QUITE FULL OF TEA AND GOODIES BY THIS TIME.  SHE HAD HAD A FULL TIME BEING IN TWO DIFFERENT MAD TEA PARTIES!  (ALICE DOLL BY RHISSANNA, SEE LINK TO HER BLOG ON MY RIGHT SIDE BAR).
THANK YOU ONE AND ALL FOR COMING TO THE MAD TEA PARTY! I HOPE YOU ENJOYED WALKING AROUND WONDERLAND WITH ALICE.

PLEASE CLICK ON 'A FANCIFUL TWIST' LINK ON MY LEFT SIDE BAR TO ATTEND MORE PARTIES.
