I read your blog through an on-computer reader (Shrook). Until today, I was getting your posts as abstracts. I've taken a couple of classes with you and I _love_ your work ... however, I had almost completely lost track of you as I hate to click through to read the entire post. I don't know if my experience today is a new decision not to abstract on your part or if your abstracting is just not working? :) It was lovely to see your work again - especially enjoy the in-your-journal entries. :) Linda
