observed by Diane » photo journal for those who enjoy vignettes of an ordinary life


Sometimes in life we are required to take a pause. That happened to me lately. I’ve had a life changing health issue that forces me to pause and relearn. As I have strength and motivation I will attempt to keep this online venue in working order, even if I am relearning how to operate.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the best of everything in 2014.

Thank you to everyone for following me, taking time to comment, and I hope to be able to resume in this ‘neck of the online woods’.

Diane, I am so sorry to hear of your setback. My thoughts are with you. I was walking our property today trying to choose a spot for the hollyhocks you sent me. May you and they flourish in the New Year.
