  20. Very Nice, Laurel!! Full of emotion and timelessness...maybe a bit of melancholy?

    Thanks for your recent note. Summer is here, and the sun is renewing my determination and creativity. I posted this week (with my own word, so fun), and we'll see how it goes from there. :-) It's the correspondence that bogs me down!

    Best wishes for a great and creative summer,
    Susan
