–Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I would like to be on a beach collecting a few right this minute. 8-)

I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.
