My Favorite Artist

Meazi under her self-portrait.
I found the following typed into a word doc on my Mac:

When I grow up I want to be an artist. Right now I like to write poems. My favorite painter is me. My favorite food is slippery shrimp. I like playing with my brother.
I like playing mommy and daddy with my brother. At school I like playing with Lulu. She is my best friend. My brother’s name is Melese. 

If you'd like to make Meazi's favorite food, HERE is the recipe. 

It is delicious.

Her self-portrait is her standing in a crystal cave. They did a performance at her school where each kid had to describe the most beautiful thing they had ever seen. Meazi apparently saw a crystal cave in National Geographic.

Can you tell I adore her? How could you not?

Got any recommendations for actual crystal caves to visit?


  1. What are her tastes in fiction? In a year or two she might enjoy Mary Stewart's The Crystal Cave.

  2. Oh my word. Beautiful painting and what a lovely soul.

  3. Love your soulful little artiste!

  4. She's a love that's for sure. Well no crystals here but we're taking Aberash here this summer--it's also not to far from where an amiga has her house in the woods.

  5. Here.

  6. love the painting. I only know the Luray caverns... not crystal but cool. :)

    Carlsbad caverns maybe? road trip!

  7. Sequioa big trees, Kings canyon

  8. My favorite crystal caves at her age were here:

    I hadn't realized this was another book by Eleanor Estes -- I found many of her other books much later.
