  • Imagine my delight when he wrote to tell me he'd be in town. Would I be up for a meeting?

    I was, of course.

    And what a enjoyable meeting it was. We laughed talked, ate, took pictures. Had fun!

    Facetime, real facetime! An exchange of expressions, sounds, gestures, smiles. Food, ideas! Right in our own home.

    Sometimes the internet seems almost ethereal and dreamlike. But dreams come true, sometimes, in cheerful conversation. An exchange of hugs. Real hugs, rather than virtual ones. Stories with happy middles.
  • Sorry it took so long for me to get these pictures downloaded and posted.

    1)Selfie by Keith with tripod, in front of our house.
    2)Richard by Mary at dining room table.

    (PS: The shirt Keith is wearing has one of my paintings on it.)
