Yep, I’m still alive! And I feel bad that I’ve abandoned you. Just caught up in the holiday hubbub. Anyway, it’s wonderful having the family all together which is always the greatest gift, really. The weather outside is frightful– we had a nice big snow last week and then it’s been dripping rain and/or ice for the past few days…quite foggy and atmospheric. Can you tell I’m trying to be cheerful about it? It’s the new me. This image is a collage I made for Valentine’s day a few years ago but I thought it was suitably wintry and cheery and a little mysterious. The message could be–See ya later–I’m outta here! OR Let’s all get along despite our differences. I choose the latter. Have a great Christmas you guys!
