    I found my way to your website by way of Susan Cooper and glad I did. I always find it impressive when someone can create a worthy story out of observations and every day life. Entertain and captivate the audience. You do just that. Thanks, Tim

    ML – So refreshing to see your creative work in cyberspace. It’s a real connection to home for me while I am flourishing in Georgia. .(My website is in alpha test stage, but It’s getting there.)
