I have been unable to visit or respond to comments these last several months. But please know how grateful I am for your visits and kind words. I have felt it might be better to turn off comments since it is difficult for me to reply (and I don’t want to seem unappreciative!) but I’ve received questions about that and requests to leave them open. So, I will leave comments open and hope that you will understand how much I appreciate the words you leave for me even though I cannot always reply. Thank you all for your kindness and encouragement. Your support for my creative efforts here has meant so very much to me.
