and paper so fine, i would weave a magic tale of rainbow design."
it doesn't have the soul of Pete Seeger's "Oh Had I a Golden Thread" or ring as, heavenly as the ethereal take from the late Eva Cassidy, but when the image of my gold pencil uploaded i was flooded with that song and added the script from a few lines of a story i wrote for my kids about their nana, Fairy Grandmother.

Amy N. Cappelli December 08, 2004

thank you everyone for the thoughtful, kind and encouraging comments. Terry, the greatest gift as of late, is the friends I have made here. I have learned so much and have learned how to give so much- to not be afraid to try new things- to share new ideas. when I joined BP it was to share my photos of my children with my family members out of state- the relationships I have acquired here were an unexpected perk that I will always value dearly :-) #961568
