A Note From Marie

To my fellow bloggers I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise.

I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I'm not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone.

My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way)and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness and good wishes.

Hi, it's me Ann, and my theme for this week is BOTTLES or JARS.

We three Muses can't wait to see what you come up with, all we ask is that you have fun and show us what you create.

  16. I've been calling you Taluula on my blog, Ann! I haven't made one this week but wanted to say how much I like yours, Ann. I love the depth of it: perspective and layers meaning. The twisted silhouette trees and feminine puppets feel like they're crying inside. Brilliant piece, Ann.

  18. Oh my. My friends here aren't getting what's in my bottle. It isn't "my" collection. That is a magical, glass slipper. The clock is almost at midnight. The words say, "If I could turn back time." I guess I should have added a pumpkin. Maybe I still will! It might need a mouse or two, too. Please take another look if you care to. :^)

  19. What happens when I leave comments and they just de-materialize, vanishing into the great void? I tried multiple times to leave comments on some of your blogs, honestly:(

  23. Just wanted to let everyone know that I can't leave comments on blogs where you need to "select" your profile.

    I am looking at everyone's and they are all wonderful!

    Ann, Kaylene--the Sea Bottle is fabulous--Sim--a wonderful creature in a bottle!--and all the rest.

    I hope that whatever the problem is, it's resolved soon.
