Hello world ~ Hope all is well you. We are enjoying some sunshine and it is delighting my heart and ArtMuse Dog's. Yet we are still somewhat 'in the deep freeze' ~ to be taken out soon as Spring is here. Who can control the weather? The Wizard of Oz, maybe. And you all know who he was. Whatever the weather it is joy each day to be free and creative.

  6. Tracy Chapman is so right. I had heard that before and it is one of my fav quotes. Hug Art Muse for me. Lovely drawings, photos and haiku. You always do such a nice job. Maybe it's partly because of your fur buddy mentor. lol
