I'm back and I wish I could be enthusiastic about that. It'll come, though I might need a few days.

However, I have to say that the highlight of my return was seeing all of the terrific posts that appeared here in my absence. Such a diverse group of voices! Each post is a gem and I love seeing how all of that came together. Endless thank yous go out to David, Melody, Kevin, Saxon, Leslie, Adrienne, Elizabeth and Karin. If I can ever return the favor, don't hesitate to ask. If any of you would ever like to post again just let me know and my forum is yours.

In the week ahead I promise to go easy on my vacation photos though there are a couple of peak experiences I cannot wait to get off my chest. Too, there's more to come from the world of mosaics, more custom fabric samples to show, more appliances to review and design ideas to mull over. Being without this particular mouthpiece for a week has shown me just how big a part of my life it is. Believe me, I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. Welcome back! I'm looking foward to hearing about the trip!

  2. Oh man Melody, you'd die! I counted four different species of longhorn beetles on the screen door one night. Four! And that was just the longhorn beetles. You would go out of your mind. I found out too that the late great Stephen Jay Gould did a lot of his tree snail fieldwork there. It's the perfect spot, they are legion!


Talk to me!
