This picture is from Maniac World and their fun montage of people holding the sun.

I’m looking forward to much more rewarding exploration ~

Bright Blessings!

TeeHeeHee – That’s me, folks – exactly 2 1/2 years ago. And boy-howdy, have I found inspirations, support, and friends a-plenty at Bridget’s. I wouldn’t be who I am, where I am, if I hadn’t made that discovery.
