I've Been Away...

Hi Blog Friends...
I am so sorry that I let so much time get away between my posts. All good things must come to an end and well, summer vacation is over, and I'm back at work.
I did sneak in a bit of a getaway....

I am completely a beach lover, but this year, we decided to try something a bit different and head to the mountains...oh, how refreshing it was. Something about the solitude and fresh air that sucks me in and makes me want to stay. A great time was had by all.
With that being said, I did pack my art supplies, and never even got them out of the car...so, there is no art to report...I am hoping that will change real soon.
I wanted to thank you all so much just for being my blog family who never gives up on me...even when I take off for weeks!!!!
Much, much love to you all.....and Mary thanks so much for checking in on me....I was thinking about you, and then, I got your message....I just love you all!!!!!
Until next time,
Ophelia

I was just thinking about you the other day and had missed seeing your work- so glad to hear you had a great vacation. I only had 5 days this summer and had to drive over 1200 miles - so not much rest. But it is good to have a change of pace. Glad you are back and look forward to some more of your lovely art!

Everyone needs time away - don't ever apologize for that. We'll all still be waiting here. By the way, don't forget to get your "package" from Christina this weekend.

Aren't the mountains glorious!
I love the beach, the magnificence and beauty of the ocean, listening to the sound of the waves, but I am a mountain kind of a girl!! They refresh me as no other. I love the smell. So glad you got a last refreshment, re-charge in before school began.

Blessings and hugs!

Alain de Botton has a great book on travel, where he talks specifically on the beauty of the sublime (read: the mountains).
