  11. i think it is quite remarkable that you've learned the gentle art of growing leaves and purple plumes on your noggin. makes you fit into the forest a little easier...x

  16. What a beautiful quote...this is one that I did not know Henry Miller said. It makes me smile...just like your beautiful faces waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. They seem to be people and friends I would like to know. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
