Put my paints and brushes into a big box and a tool box for the summer. We are in the process of purchasing a condo 200 miles away, and between that, and putting our current home on the market, there seems to be a million things to do. I don't see myself having the time, or the serenity, to paint until we settle into our new abode in Eau Claire Wisconsin -- hopefully in the not too distant future.

However, I’m old enough to appreciate books which are real, physical, living things, so they are nice to have at hand. My four books now sit next to my desk, so that I can glance over, read my name on their spines and say to myself, “Hey, I did it – something I alway
