    This is just wonderful. You’ve got some very well-done and thought-provoking posts here. Sometimes an image is so much more powerful than words, and yours certainly speak volumes. Glad I found your blog and I will recommend it on mine.

    • Chris,
      Thank you so much! I agree as well, that we are all Big Bird… at least 47% of us…

        Thanks Melanie – I am just working on a post so that I can send people over to see your blog. Would it be OK for me to use a few of your images in my blog (all linked to yours, of course) so that they can get an idea of what you do?

      • Oh, of course! I appreciate your spreading it around! Thank you!
