--a winter wonderland. Here we have days of gale force winds and torrential rain. Not so pretty. I hold the people in my life just a little closer--they bring warmth and joy--and this year is special for having "met" you, Velma. Peace and Joy.

jean, a new fiber friend who quietly makes amazing work. much love to you both.

lovely to see all the happy puppies
and in entire agreement
that every day we wake up breathing
constitutes a holy day
and a generous blessing
