I don’t like applying labels to myself. I am a constantly evolving work-in-progress. This blog will probably reflect that evolution. So here are some of the things I am all about right now, and they may well be the things I blog about:

art, quilts, education, books, dharma, nature, motherhood, community, poetry, music, love, friendship

If you share a love of any of these things, then you may like to stick around.

If you don’t share a love of any of these things, there’s no need to leave.

I like getting comments, because then I know I’m not talking to myself. Then again, it wouldn’t be unheard of for me to talk to myself.

If you like my blog, let me know, but please don’t nominate me for awards. If you want to know why see this post. Instead award me with your presence, your comments, your interaction.

  4. You are right. When you are commenting or getting comments of your work then it will spur you for still more work and in that you are not alone. All others are also the co-passegers wit you. Really great.
