Hi Lizza, good to have you back away from the typhoon and on the internet. Oh, I how I suffer when mine if off... But sometimes I want to run away from it and into the nature. The nature here (Pacific Northwest, USA) is quiet and gentle these days, and I hope for the same for you...

See you!

Sony said...

Finally. You've gots loads of catching up to do. :)

Lizza said...

Ela: Thank you. Escapes to quiet and gentle nature sounds so soothing. That must inspire great art and writing from you!

Sony: Don't I know it. :-) I'm taking it little by little. Thanks for stopping by.

ian said...

Well, I'll just say that at 4 months from 36, you look a heck of a lot better than I do at 3 months from 35. :)
