Hello World

Cherry Blossoms In Bloom In Our Neighborhood


My the world looks more beautiful with the pile of tax receipts tackled and put behind me!  Thanks for your patience, everyone.  I’m looking forward to spending my free time writing and gardening again.

In my absence, it seems many of you have read articles from the archive.  I’m very pleased!  Thanks for your wonderfully thoughtful comments.  They mean a great deal to me.

I’m writing away this afternoon, so this week should be pretty filled with words – and actions! – once again.  I hope you’re enjoying your day, and I will see you tomorrow.  Ciao!
