I LOVED Brittany!!! I will say more about this as I continue to post my sketches and stories, but for right now a brief declaration of love will have to suffice. My mother is back in the hospital (though doing better, as of last night----they've discovered the source of a problem that has been plaguing her for a long while, so that is the bright side of this latest setback. We all hope this will allow her to really regain her strength and appetite.). I will be on the road again, to and from her town for the foreseeable future. My daughter Cecelia is coming, with her boyfriend for a ten-day visit (several days of which I will, unfortunately have to miss, due to my mother's illness), and our grandson Jonas turns one today, with a big party here tomorrow in celebration. So, lots going on.
