  1. This is stunning, both in words and picture! It’s inspiring, Linda. I just set my “Bleed” Rictameter to a video and will share later in the week. The inspiration came from you. Thank you, again!

  2. First, the artwork is really nice. Second, the poem was nice as well. Third, in a coincidence, there is currently a Dragonfly post series going at msakran.wordpress.com. It’s nice to see that others are exploring them as well.
