    rachel,
    I just love that. Are you going to make it into a print? My husband has pancreatic cancer (he is young and it was just diagnosed in late November). This is just how I am feeling right now…how can this all be transformed into something that will be of benefit.

    Thanks for just enjoying it here. i would love to own it.

    Hugs,
    Suz—resident of St. Paul again as of Saturday!
