I told you that I’d be back soon, and implied dazzling pictures and brilliant text. And I’ve taken some lovely shots with this new camera. However, sometimes life has a way of putting things into perspective.

We don’t know many details yet, but my Nana, my mother’s mother, who will be 85 later this summer, has been admitted to our local hospital. And that’s all that matters.

Thank you for hanging in there with me as I take some time to be with family and focus on the things that matter.
