1. My dear, you break my heart with your art and your words, listening to you with tears rolling my face. Thank you.

  2. Hi Connie –

    Thank you for this, an elegant sculpting of words out of, and in to, air. Air that breathes us. In, out, in all.

    Been thinking of you, hope you and yours are well.

  9. My Dear Heart – I have missed reading your poetry and seeing your art. I’m so happy to see this post. I have been so tied up with my daughter’s cancer fights, I neglected everything else. They are both doing well and I’m thankful for all the prayers. Keep painting Love always, your friend Helen

I am giving the Sevicks permission to give my personal contact info. I love you. thank you my dear friend. <3

  10. Mmmmm! I’ve read it before but this poem is still more lovely today. Reading your posts make me feel as if we’ve spent an afternoon together, but I just realized that I’ve been remiss in telling you this–how would you know otherwise? Thank you for reminding us that we aren’t alone. We all have the same opportunities to hold each other up, and you do it so well.

    Sending love and hugs,

  12. As the snow falls, I am
    thanking Winter for coming
    around again.
    I missed it,
    it brought its heart to
    me to keep safe.
    It has my word.
