I almost thought I'd lost the post when my computer rebooted after a software update that didn't let me tell it no... but firefox and lj restored it just fine. Whew.
I'm staring at a background picture that is from the landscapes gallery of Twisted Brush painting program website. It's a bit out of season (gorgeous spring sunrise) but so pretty I can't bear to replace it with something more current. One day I will learn to paint like that. One day.
