I've been dealing with some health problems since June that are quite frankly kicking my butt . . . but I'm trying to rally myself like my beloved literary heroine, "Hattie" from Barbara Cooney's Hattie and the Wild Waves. Whenever she fell ill, she threw herself into her painting and artistry while sequestered in bed. I'm trying to claw back my creativity and seize the star quill when I can!
