GOOD MORNIING MIMI! MIMI dear, I am so happy to see you come for a visit my dear. I am very happy to know that this year will be the year that I confirm TO MYSELF that I am an artist and I will make a concerted effort to create for the purpose of JOY and then present it to possible agents. I can only try. That is the key....if I never publish, so be it. But it is the trying that will be the most valuable. I have to do it!!!
