SO glad our paths crossed via #reverb10, and ESPECIALLY glad your words are pouring and pouring. promise you won't try to hold them in. let them spill all over us. we're richer because of it. xo


oh please let the pouring continue your writings are just wonderful, deep and lush. The richness of that central place is so powerful for you.


@Shannon, @WhollyJeanne, @Dragonfly -- oh wow! Thank you all so much for your kind words! I don't know what to say. So I'll just smile and be happy that it worked for you. :)
