MaryJane, Thank you very much for commenting on my first efforts! Every time I try a new creative outlet I seem to fall in love all over again. I was telling someone at work this week, "If you get bored go try something new. Creative outlets will send you to the moon and back. It isn't necessary to change life partners to put the zing back in your life. It's only necessary to reach out and experience what you are capable of!
