Love the cover!
Thank you very much, Laurel! My husband took the photo of those fall leaves submerged in the Methow River in Eastern WA.
It’s cool how you use images with personal meaning to match with your words, like the poem that is your gravatar.
Thank you for taking a closer look at that poem, Laurel. Every once in a while, especially in late winter, I get the irresistible urge to work with some COLOR, and that sends me looking for some rich-hued paper or paint. Then I scribble on it. : -)
It’s very cool. Keep scribbling!
