"The Sky Rained Mail Today..."

...and created a multicolored rainbow of ATC delight!
...From Cris in Oregon...
...From Soulbrush in England...
...From Lynn in California...
...and from Teri in Wisconsin...
What an imaginative garden of artistic blooms!
Believe me...
I watered it well, too, with joyful tears upon opening each envelope!
Each card is simply spectacular in detail and
exquisitely joyful in color.
OOOOH MY!
I cannot even begin to tell you enough
how rich an experience it is for me to hold another's original art
in my very own hand...it energizes my spirit.
Thanks for sharing your JOY
dear ATC friends!
What a "Thankful Thursday" indeed!

Tomorrow morning
I head over to the hospital for a bit of out-patient "surgery"
...more specifically entitled a
"Left Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy"
in which water, sound waves, anesthesia, and a bit of "voodoo magic"
will all combine to hopefully
smash my kidney stone to "smitherines"...
I am thinking of leaving my sketchbook home for this one...
But...one never knows what one will do...
...does one! :)

Oh I hope all goes well tomorrow. Your the third one I've heard about having kidney stones lately.I wish you a speeding recovery.
I am so glad my ATC got there. I was wondering if it got lost. What a fantastic group of great work to be posted with.
Yours hasn't come yet. So I will post it as soon as it gets here.

What a wonderful display of art! Hoping you have a very easy, painless procedure and maybe even some silly, funny nurses and techs to keep you laughing and not stressed :) and if that doesn't work, perhaps a tech who looks like George Clooney?
