Oops I took this picture ages ago and forgot to post it. A while back I asked for suggestion of books by authors of colour that I should read, inspired by one of the #64MillionArtists #TheWeeklyChallenge, and of course this resulted in me buying even more books. This is what I ended up with. Going to take a while for me to get through these as I am a slow reader with a massive reading list (I can’t help but adopt pre-owned books ) but I’m looking forward to them. Where do you think I should start?

The book at the top of the pile is The Color Purple by Alice Walker, the next book down is I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, the third book down is Mrs Death Misses Death by Selena Godden, and the book at the bottom of the pile is Who Am I Again by Lenny Henry]
Thank you for Angela in Peterborough for this week’s challenge,
Sometimes Hope Looks Like…
What is giving you hope today?
The weekly creative challenge with @64millionartists was to express hope. Nothing says hope more than a fragile tiny paperboat that keeps going with the waves and does everything in its might to not sink.
So here is to fragility, resilience, strength, persistence and hope. May it spring eternal always ✨

Here’s a photograph I took during lockdown, which gave me hope. It looked like a giant ‘E’ in the sky. It is also the first letter of my youngest grandson’s name and this image gave me hope that I would be able to see him again soon. #64MillionArtists#SometimesHopeLooksLike
I made this last summer after seeing lots of these placed around my local area. It’s not found a home yet so after taking a photo for this post I’m inspired to go out and place it somewhere! One of my plants is also in the photo, as having green life in the home also gives you hope…
