  3. Rachel,

    I absolutely L❤VE the picture you drew from my quote.

    Each time I see your drawing — your lines and colors dancing around my words — I am filled with joy. Thanks so much for the honor. I am touched. It marks the first time my words inspired someone to draw from them.

    Grazie mille ❤ You truly made my days beyond wonderful.


    P.S. DANCING IN THE DELIGHT OF INSPIRATION ALL AROUND began with hopes and dreams, carrying me to Tuscany. For more photos and treasures from that journey — my immersion into writing, bliss, and the artful life in Tuscany — click here Grazie!
