Hello World!

Long time, no see . . . .

We've had some health issues going on with my 17 year old daughter that had me way, way, way sidetracked for the last couple of weeks. Mono for one thing but more than that going on . . . prayers are appreciated but I think we are getting things lined out finally. She had some pretty bad infections going on in her body but she is getting better.

So, meanwhile . . . I did get a few things done, slow as molasses, but finally done. Here's my latest collage work . . . one of my new favorites. I'm not selling prints for awhile on Etsy, not until life settles down and I can commit to regular trips to the post office. Maybe next week. This piece is inspired by my real live chats with my neighbor Cindy.

So sorry that your daughter's been so sick. Hope each day brings better health, now that you know what it is. Knowing finally, is the first step, isn't it? Hope you're getting some sunshine where you are! Your art is wonderful...as always! Take care...kathy

Hi Marsha! I hope everyone at your house gets better soon. Seems like I have been in crisis-management for about 6 months now. Is there something in the water? LOL! Take good care of YOU, I am very sure you are the 'glue' at your house. xox Pam

I LOVED your interview with Zom in Australia...she is one of my favorites and a real jewel. Your daughter needs time to really regain her strength and vitality. Lovely collage sheets! IMAGINE AND Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Sick children are the hardest. They are such an extension of ourselves; it can literally make the world stop.

So happy to hear things are getting better. Now maybe you can just b-r-e-a-t-h-e (inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, in...)

A beautiful new piece with great character and expression Marsha. Hope your daughter is getting better ( always tough when the kids are not well). Happy May to you and yours and look forward to more of your inspirations!
