News and Features for April - May

It seems as if I’ve hardly been here at all over the last couple of months,. It’s been such a seesaw of emotions and events, both personally and professionally that, frankly, I am just glad to have survived the chaos and be here on RB with all of you, my good friends, and loving the time I am able to share with you.

Computer crashes, family illnesses, the death of a much loved aunt, and the departure of some good friends here on RB – difficult to stay positive through all of this, but happily, there have been some wonderful highlights during this time, just being able to log in with my new computer and to see your wonderful comments on my work is one of the best of those highlights.

I was delighted this week to be able to exhibit the work of a fellow bubbler and friend, Rick Bransby, better known as Rckster 1 on my website. If you haven’t already done so, please visit Rick’s wonderfully evocative Exhibition of Photography and verse here

And some very exciting news – I will be collaborating over the next few months with another RB member on producing a book – it’s early days yet, so more of that in a later journal.

Another hugely cheering highlight was that although I wasn’t here very often, my work was still being featured in all my favourite Groups. My heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful hard-working hosts that have featured my images in over the last couple of months. I am so appreciative of all the work you do and of the support you give to all of us.

So here, from first to last, are my featured works from April and May.
