I don't mind waiting...;)

your posts are worth the wait...

fall is just getting started here-finally the first hints of cooler weather. i've just spent the better part of this past weekend redoing all my workspaces which generally prefaces a creative spurt- however i am in the throws of getting ready for Houston and all that entails so some of it will just have to wait. (my day job!)

not to worry lainie, it all awaits you whenever you are ready for it- new season, new days, new choices. looking forward to our get together!

the thread is there. waiting.

Hang in there. Work (a day job) can be so draining. Your blog is inspirational for me, even if you only post now and then. I'm sending some love to you.

I have no clue where the love is but ... here's my thanks for your posts and links!
