    thank you so much for your prayers for Chelsea…they have arrested someone they believe to be linked but still have not found her. Continued prayers are needed.

    I adore how she’s swinging/hanging/dancing with the sun! And that bejeweled dress! Or are those all the beautiful pieces that make up the sum of her? LOVE!

    there is something in me waiting to burst too!
    (last week it was the button on my pants…)
    smart child.
    i love the innocent comments they make.
    my most recent one was this…
    “mom…how do you hotwire a car?”
    i.m thinking you are on a more upstanding track with your dear son than i am at the moment.
    im gonna work on that.
    LOVE your last two pieces.
    how did i miss the cherry tree?
    do you actually HAVE a cherry tree?
    i wonder if k.t. has a cherry tree.
    they.re good for us.

  11. o yes i can smell spring
    on the brim of March —
    especially while biking
    by Seattle cherry blos-
    soms, sums of nose yums,
    & what fun it is to swing
    on your rays of the sun!

    glad we met through blue
    bicicletta’s queen & happy
    you found my “Defy” and
    “White Stone” enjoyable
