Thank you, one and all, for your loving, heartfelt, supportive responses to my two Jude articles. I am overwhelmed by the tenderness and words of wisdom. I've been away from Drawger for some time, now, and I sometimes forget what a great group of people inhabit this blog. It can be an amazingly nurturing place and I really must carve out time to be a more active participant. It's good around here for creative inspiration. And awfully good for the soul.
And thank you, Zina, for this beautiful portrait. You somehow transformed my pigsty studio into a work of art and shaved 10 pounds off my beer belly. You are a magician!
