I am sorry, I was unable to get a good photo of the three wonderful creative wood burning panels of ducks in nature. Each one is 2x6 created by artist Carole Tormey Jones of Yellville, Arkansas. They are on display at Toll House Antiques & Gifts in Cotter. While you are there check out my book, Ozarks Sunrises.
I am back from the shadows of darkness reaching for the stars of hope. My monitor died a slow death last month where I was unable to reach the outside world for a couple of weeks. With the support of my family I am back. Where would we be without a loving family?
Dave Butts of BBS Computer Sales and Systems Services, Inc., Mountain Home (870) 425-9467 came out to my studio hooked up a large screen flat monitor (my son left me). I love it! It is like having new glasses where I can see more clearly. He hooked up my Skype ( my grandson and family gave me) to be able to see and keep in touch with them who are so far away. Plus, my newly purchased EPSON -Perfection V330 Photo that scans documents to edit, slides, film strips, and negatives into photos. I am looking forward to developing my slides into photos to be used with my books and poems I have finished and others I am working on. Also, photo essays for magazines. I still have things to clear up on the computer and then I am off and running toward my goals. It is hard to kill the dreams of a dreamer when they have been blessed by God.
I recieved a beautiful arrangement from my daughter Margeret and family-filled with bright colors of Fall that brighten up the house. Today, is the start of another day to believe in myself and go forward.
