  1. The Annie Dillard quote was interesting to think about. Thanks for sharing your artwork, too. Is there anything you CAN’T do??? You can write, sing, compose music, paint. . . you are a talented young woman!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Terri, and sorry not to respond to your comment sooner. I have been out of town.

      I’m afraid that talent is one part grace and personality and nine parts blood, sweat, toil and tears 🙂 Also, I’m sure I would feel clumsy and illiterate beside a number of “accomplished” women of just a few centuries past.
