a special little envelope arrived in my mailbox
postmarked from far, far away
Inside was a beautiful note card from Ely Cathedral
with a lovely handwritten note from
Oooooh! MY!!!! What a treat it was to receive!!!
I am sure you can imagine! :)
(BTW...in case you didn't know...
Anita has drawn a series of sketches from Ely.
What a charming and historic area!
You can check out her Ely sketch series here...
They are simply an artistic feast!)
to celebrate receiving such fun overseas mail ...
I decided to post a montage of images of Ely Cathedral
drawn in my Moly.
The tower is known as the "Octagon"...
The colorful patterns in the lower left corner of the spread
are part of the flooring near the
shrine of Etheldreda..."Saint and Queen".
The patterns on the right side of the spread are
drawn from a medieval glass window.
(There is such rich and interesting
a visit to the website is highly recommended...gorgeous photos!)
Lastly, the simple candle
and it's "flame of friendship" was the central photograph
and main theme of the note card itself.
you are the best ever!
Like this candle...
YOU have shined your artistic light on so many of us
and kindled our imaginations.
It was a serendipitous delight that our paths crossed.
What an honor and a pleasure
it is to have you as my
"Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.

by being shared."
