No Cal

Hello, there. It’s been a while. I’ve been in Northern California (mostly Oakland) since around the middle of March, staying at the home of my wonderful, beautiful, kind, generous friend, Lin. Often I’ve been planting and playing in her lovely garden or sewing or, from time to time, going out and about.

Anyway, I thought before I go I’d like to finish up a few thoughts that had begun with my last post.   First, I wanted to post a couple more … Continue reading A couple things more…. and Tango
