Hi, Martha--

Enjoyed browsing around your blog a bit.

I so admire artists, although I lack any semblance of an artistic bone. I do enjoy photography, though. Maybe that counts a little toward an artistic bent. :)
(I'm also good at smiley faces.)

Change like the weather? Why not? I think we really do.

Be blessed.

Many, many Marthas! They (you) all have a story to tell, don't they? The variations in mood and palette are wonderful.

Hi Rob

Yeah, Martha, Martha, MARTHA! (as in the Brady Bunch lingo...)

But thanks!
