I'm always fascinated by deserted houses, abandoned barns, and remnants of the past. I wonder what stories they could tell about the people who shared their heyday. They often inspire me to write a bit of poetry, as did this abandoned stairway to .... who knows where? Thanks for indulging me!
NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:
It is with immense sadness Ann and I report that our very dear friend, Marie Markham, passed away this morning after a year-long battle with illness following her surgery a year ago. Marie and I met on a pen pal site in 1999 and have communicated almost daily since then. She was the driving force in establishing our three digital art challenge blogs--Take a Word , Three Muses, and Digitalmania. Our friend, Ann Baker from the UK, joined us and we three friends who have never met managed the three blogs for over ten years. Ann and I have continued to manage them during Marie's illness. We have sorely missed her talent and wit. We know you join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Marie's family in Perth.
