"500 Times..."


...day and night...
you have been with me.
Whether it be
looking, chatting, trading, sharing, laughing, crying,
wallowing, WooHooing, or wondering...
occasionally "popping in"...or becoming a "regular"
it matters not...
For we share a LOVE for the magic that art
adds to our lives
and through that...I have come to know you as
"friend".
Thanks from the bottom of my heart
for again being here...this actual day for my
"Happy 500th Blogpost"!
I never ever, even in my wildest dreams,
imagined this would be a reality!
...And, what a marvelously
momentous and celebratory way to spend a
"Cactus Monday"!

"WOOO! HOOOOO!"
~Me
(...as I awaken all the desert wildlife for miles around!)

Margaret, your work reminds me of the landscape I usually seen when I was a little girl. Back there trewe was so many cactus, gray, black and few green and so much blue in the sky. No rain, no water. A very dry place... so green was a releaf!
