It’s great to be back and a little emotional as well. Since my last post, I’ve been hospitalized (all OK now), moved and started a new job. There have been a lot of changes but I feel better than ever!
I never got to finish Marion Evans month from last February, so I’ll be doing that for the rest of the month and then featuring a new collaboration artist in May.
