The reason that I have been so quiet lately is that after I got back from my trips, my Muse went on vacation. She didn't tell me where. She didn't tell me when she'd be back. Left with no warning, no forwarding address. I've been patiently awaiting her return. Tried to make art without her--its just no fun. Been cleaning up my work space meanwhile. Catching up on work. Just not much art. I have a feeling that she'll be back soon. And then, watch for more art!
