Dragonflies Are Free

Giant telepathic dragonflies. Imagine that. That’s what Saardu has, for starters. The above photos were taken by my dear friend Patty Sovic who lives near wetlands in Humboldt County, California. She knows I love dragonflies, watching them hover and skim, and how hard it is to get a decent photograph of them. Patty sends her victories to me every chance she gets and I have collected a spectacular array of her dragonfly photos. Now they’re volume 4 of my Gramma Carmels ABC Picture Books.

Published by Carma Chan

Carma is an American poet, photographer and author, who has published under her maiden name, Dillon, and now writes as Carma Chan to honor her Chinese stepdad. She has also published the Gramma Carmels Preschool Series of digital picture books. Born in 1958 in Los Angeles, she was raised with unconditional love by Ruth and John Chan of Utah from the age of six on and has dedicated her life to "Love, Joy, Peace & Jazzy Harmony." She shares Dr. King's dream. Besides the Saardu series, which is her way of coping with insanity and imagining "greater things than anyone ever taught me," she also writes about overcoming personal pain. For example, 10 Most Annoying Things People Say to NICU Parents (...when they're only trying to help!) "I'm not always serious," she adds, "Having a warped sense of humor is the best medicine! So my stuff is a bit whacked and layered."
