Cherish Them...I mean you

I've always loved getting the mail.  Opening the squeaky metal mailbox to find all the different papers, envelopes, and magazines...ooo it just puts my senses into overload.  Of course most of the mail is really not that fun anymore.  Just bills, stuff for the Honorable of the house and of course tons of junk mail.  But it still thrills me to walk down and get it.  It also helps that this time of year my lantana is growing OUT of control around the mailbox and just knowing how much that ticks my mean mail lady off gives me a giggle.  That's really bad, isn't it?

Yep.  We are now at an age of emails, twitters and facebooking our friends.  In fact, I can't remember the last time I actually hand wrote a letter, can you?  Which brings me to email.  Although email doesn't have a creaky old metal box with outlandishly growing lantana around it, I still get a thrill every time I open it up.  I get tons of junk, spam from friends, lots of updates for this and that and then the surprises.  Man, I love those surprises.  And lately, I've been getting a lot of email love surprises from my blog readers.  So tonight, feeling a bit sappy after just reading a good one, I thought and say "thanks" to all of you.  For being here, loving this little blog and loving me.  I cherish you all.  Just like little red Mommy bird above with her babies, I try to bring you a piece of the nest a few times a week in hopes of nourishing your creative soul.  I know writing these entries fills mine.  As the sentiment above states, cherish them......and I really do.  xo J

I LOVE this painting!! You are inspiring me to put aside the watercolors and try some acrylics. You make painting look fun and exciting. Your talent shines through and is brightening my day.

I love how you did the nest here.

I always say to people, if you write someone a letter, they'll write back. But that's not really true anymore. Sometimes I'm not sure all this technology truly makes us better. But I do like blogs!
