Good to hear from you, Cindy, LInda, Donna, Usman and Rita. -- Maybe I'll change my icon to this one!

Cindy. You're making me blush! I went to your galleries and both of them blew me away. I'm not even to where you were when we were in class together two years ago yet. Talk about inspiration!

Both yours, Donna's and Linda's galleries were ones I would go to for the two big "I's": inspiration and ideas.

Usman, thank you for having me on your radar. I love what you do with your images.

And Rita, it's fun being in Phellos with you now. We all come up with so many ideas...together.
