When the river runs dry.

read

Hello there! Wow, it feels good to tap some keys again! You may or may not have noticed I took a week off from all things blog. I could see my own tap was just running outta water and my mind needed to just live life without blogging about it for a spell. The little break […]

Dear Donna   I read your blog and am observing change in your life.   Have you ever considered yourself an artist?  I mean, for real. Of course, you are. Basement Paint Studio .

Inspired by my tranquil Othello cabin riverfront getaway
