my apologies and a few excuses.
needless to say i have been quite absent from my blog. i apologize. i should confess that i am somewhat new to the world of websites and blogs; i've always passed that business onto my more adept husband. and now or at least 6 or so months ago i decided it was high time i learn and just do it. no sense in fighting it. even though i've spent the last 5 years of my life doing just that. i could go on and on about how old fashioned i am and resistant to technology and just about anything that makes life easier. well...except for air conditioning. but maybe i will save that for another day. i just thought i should give some explanation for my turtle-like posts. bear with me as i try to conquer my fear of the computer world of business and self promotion. that being said, i did manage to go on a 2 week vacation to brazil of all places. (thank you dear cousin for getting hitched in brazil to a lady who along with my mom and sisters keeps me in business.) i tried to absorb everything i saw in brazil and i'd like to think i've been enlightened because of it. so stay tuned to inspired work. the image of the bird above was taken at the Jardim Botanico in Rio de Janeiro. we didn't get the best photograph of him but i kept seeing this guy everywhere we went. i kind of miss him.
