Oh, wow. I have been inactive for TOO long. Blogger changed!? Whoa...
It is sad to say that not much has happened since my last post, I'm still taking my general courses (which sucks out the creative energy in me), so that's fun. I did however discover a new love for poetry. :)


My son is also discovering the magical world of ART.

your son is delightful, & so are your drawings. maybe if you ever feel compelled, you'll share some of your favorite poems, or maybe not, & that will be okay too. :)
