This week and next, we’re celebrating love and my favorite holiday, Valentine’s Day.  If you have any poems, photos, quotes or short stories about love you’d like to share, please send me a note or leave a comment below.

If you know any homeless artists who would like their poems, photos or art featured on under1000skies, on our social media accounts and through our email list, please pass on our information. Thank you!

We’re also always gratefully accepting photos, art, poems or quotes or any Gems anyone might want to share. Special thanks today and always to everyone who has shared these so generously over the years since we began.

Have a great weekend.

As promised, Gems has restarted on November 1st.  We’ll be going back to M-F every week from now on.  The series “Bag End to Rivendell” (The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien) Gem #’s 33-54 will be updated on Under 1000 Skies as soon as I have appropriate photos.  I appreciate all the photos donated for Gems, and I used as many as I could that suited the hobbit journey.  We’ll do this series again next year and by then we should be able to fill in those photos and as well as other walks through Middle Earth with appropriate photos without having to worry about copyright infringement.
