Lofton China ~ To 'Drink" a Mockingbird

My Patio Table 

 My daylillies !!  Love my little garden bird and mushroom top !!!

The Tea Cup
This is my delight ~ my treasure find of the week.   I'm in the collecting stage of luvin a good tea cup... and in learning to luv the many types of tea.

 I thought of the harshness of the story "To Kill A Mockingbird"..... along side the beauty of this cup of tea.    I must admit that we (I) still stress over political view and The American Dream.  Lacking knowledge and doing nothing.... when good men do nothing.... evil prevails.

The Bird
Mockingbirds (from the Mimidae family) are best known for the habit of some species mimicking the songs of other birds and the sounds of insects and amphibians -- often loudly and in rapid succession. The only mockingbird commonly found in North America is the Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos). The Greek word  polyglottos means multiple languages.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are loosely based on the author's observations of her family and neighbors, as well as on an event that occurred near her hometown in 1936, when she was 10 years old.

The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explains the novel's impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism.
