I am sorry I didn't comment back to you. I didn't get a notification! FL was really nice. Time was too short, but that's always the case. Spent a lot of time with family and friends and didn't have time to write while there. I have done a few pieces since returning, though. I love being near water.

I've been well. Florida sounds pretty sweet. Did you do any creative thinking down there? I imagine Florida would be great for, since it's so pretty.
