So beautiful, Kim. Hypnotic. I am bound by this spell, the quiet dance, balances changing, rising, falling disappearing and reappearing with the mysterious music. It gave me a moment’s joy and peace in a hectic time. Thanks.
Thank you Kathleen, of course you see all that, and thank you for that! It was so lovely to see you on the “berm!” xoxo
