One of the many things I love about your works, is that your creations and photos tell stories without words--so much said in a small vignette, a small bird, a sky photo... "love overflowing"--you said it best yourself. ;o) It has been a joy to see this project unfold with you. Thank you for a year full of sharing & beauty for the heart & soul. Wishing you & yours all the very best in 2011, my friend ((HUGS))
