Apologies for not much posting, but on top of having to deal with painful emergency oral surgery and recovery over the holidays, and other general downers like not being able to eat much without blending it because hardly any teeth left ( new dieting strategy? lolz ), my greenhouse was totally destroyed early this morning due do unexpected severe wind storm. It was already damaged from a wind storm that happened while I was laid up from the oral surgery, and not having had the chance to fully repair that damage and some tension loss in the guy ropes. The wind brought in by this front had 50mph sustained gusts all day that just obliterated the
Here I am again. I know I have been pretty bad about writing updates, and worse about being able to check in on friends and see how everyone is doing.

Thank you! I've seen a lot of nice art through the group so far. I wanted to get a feel for it before I started offering any submissions. I didn't see mention of a limit on how many can be submitted per day/week/etc so I planned to ask.
Would you still be in need of contributors? If so, I'd be inclined to help find more awesome fantasy work to share.
