"Perfect love sometimes does not come until after the first grandchild." REPRISED

Patricia Youngquist uses words and images to tell stories about her passions. Based in New York, she currently is authoring a series of nature books on birds of the city. Now in Apple’s iBooks store AND it’s on Amazon.

Once upon a time, here on blogger, I pointed out that according to a Welsh proverb, "perfect love sometimes does not come until after the first grandchild."
And I stated that I "imagine perfect love probably comes with any grandchild, or child for that matter (although I have neither, and my maternal instincts are mainly exercised in the extreme care I offer in tending my terrace garden as well as tending to the needs of the birds that visit it). In any event, whether perfect love comes with the first grandchild or not, the fact that I am my maternal grandparents' first grandchild causes me to like to believe that the proverb is true! Not only am I my grandparents' first grandchild, but I was born on their wedding anniversary!"
In any event, my wonderful grandmother died a number of years ago, but before she passed, she said to me that I "should get back to writing,"  which I finally am.
And if she were alive today, I would certainly give her a copy of the book, "Words In Our Beak Volume One," which Cam, the cardinal  who visits my urban (NYC) garden, wrote with me.
If, dear reader, you are fourtunate enough to still have your grandmother, you might want to consider giving her the gift of Cam, which according to my "love birds" makes a wonderful Valentines gift!
Perhaps some of you are grandparents, and if so, you must know all about perfect love and grandchildren bringing it into your lives! Since children have also enjoyed Cam, you might want to consider expressing your love for your grandchildren by sharing Cam with them for Valentines Day.
The V day holiday is only eight days away so I'm just sayin....


ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
