Thanks so much, Betty! It means so much to me to be able to reduce our “distancing” and to connect in this strangest of times. All my best to you and your remarkable mom. Be well!
THANK YOU! with all we have to worry about these days, this brings us down to earth and reminds us that the “little” everyday things that we take for granted matter and bring joy. they really aren’t little things at all.
Hey, Cindy! Thanks so much for your message. Yes, along with the static of fear that surrounds us is such a profound awareness of the things that comfort us and bring us joy. I’ll be exercising along with Chris & Andrea’s online walk today at 3:00. Maybe I’ll “see” you there, at least in my mind’s eye!
Thank you so much!!!!! I needed this and all the blessings it reminded me of. My dad died nine years ago on this date. This was needed💕
You’re so welcome! And thank YOU for your message. Much love to you – and to your wonderful dad in heaven. Stay well, my friend!

Beautiful! Love the drawings!
So helpful. Rich detail and color, the things I usually notice,that both ground and uplift me.
Thank you. This brought me a sense of calmness amid all the chaos in our world today!!
I’m so glad! That’s what I was/am seeking, and being able to share it means the world to me. Stay well!
Wonderful — profoundly sweet.
Thanks so much, Kate. I’ve started working in a new drawing app for the ipad. It’s opened a door I’ve been knocking on for the past year. And the gift of the now, for me, is time to draw. Stay well and safe, my friend. Love –s.
Thank you for this. It’s so sweet, like some of my favorite picture books, and nice to read at this very stressful time. I especially like remembering Jean, too.
Thanks so much for your comment, Marianne. And Jean was unforgettable! Her old house is actually a few blocks away from where I live now. And, yes, I really do think of her whenever I sit in her chair. So glad we’re in touch. Stay well!
These images were lovely and have left me feeling refreshed and more hopeful….reminding me that there is much to be grateful for. Thank you.
Thanks so much for your message, Joan. It warmed my heart. I’m very grateful.
