Expect wonderful things

Today I sit here with the light streaming through the windows, promising that spring, as the calendar says, is indeed here. My laptop is on my lap, I'm taking a break from working on the new website, to just check some links on this one, and I felt compelled to write another entry in this digital diary.

Morton is fast asleep, he's second shift today. The studio will be open from 10 to 2, Cassidy, our helper from Hong Kong who is here until May 8th is going to finish planting the last bed of canna lilies on the steps in the sunshine and all is really wonderful in our little world here.

I am wondering about you, dear reader, virtual visitor. What is your day looking like today? Are we a bright spot in it? I hope so. I wish you the most wonderful day filled with moments that bring you bliss and little sparks of smiles that fill it full of memories.

I'm so grateful for you. Happy that you're interested in our never-ending project here. You are my bright spark, though we don't know each other, I like to think about you watching the progress, sending positive thoughts our way and just taking the time from your day to spend a bit with us.

Expect wonderful things :)
