I am breathless!

What a beautiful child. Congratulations!

By any means, a miracle, every time, but here, beauty pure and simple!

Hi Charlotte.

How are you and the young adults keeping? It has been long since we ' typed '!
I am going through your works in the other posts...simply unreal!!

Each one evokes an emotion; to me that is the predominant essence of anything ; text, painting, image etc. And you do it ever so hauntingly.

Let's keep in touch. I shall be commenting on your collection posted here, as I take my time savoring each of them.

My very best to you and yours.

Asher, Maggie..thank you both so very much.

We were informed about 2 days before, that my daughter-in-law was going into labour. Ayesha took the long haul flight from here to Montreal. Transit in the airport and than another 6-7 hours journey to Vancouver!! I am unable to take undertake such travel.

She went directly from the airport to the hospital, where they had administered the epidural a little while ago. So she was was there with my son and his wife, when Jana, my granddaughter, arrived. Just in time!

That is travel, with a purpose.

What a fabulous story. She is likely the first Ayesha in history to have made this journey and arrived in time!

This is a wake up call for all of us. Reach out to loved ones while we have the power....or have a great messenger!

It is indeed.

Best of wishes to you and Ayesha, to Jana'a parents, and of course to Jana. She will understand, - she just has not yet learned the silly languages of we "grownups" so she can't tell us she understands!

Best regards,

Doug
