“Rivers know this: There is no hurry. We shall get there. ”
A. A. Milne (1882-1956);
English author, best known for his books about Winnie-the-Pooh

This reminder arrivedin my mailbox from Values.com.  It is so good for me personally, that I am considering having it tattooed somewhere – my forehead maybe?  

Well, maybe not, but Winnie wasn’t the only one on a journey to find the honey pot, and look at all the adventures he had along the way.

    Hi Nanci! Yes, we shall get there. And that’s right up there with, “Hey, it’s not going anywhere.” I like applying that one to housework. The dust will still be there tomorrow, so we don’t need to knock ourselves out today…we shall get there.

    So good to hear from you… speaking of getting there.
    Please give us an update on your move and new adventure. Time to skype!

    This piece is so lovely and hints at great depths! The eye lingers on the marks here or there boldly emerging from the blue to breach the surface. Different in texture and scale, but it reminds me of Helen Frankenthaler’s elegant abstracts. They always hearken back to nature’s source.

    Thank you Tatiana.

    Nature, her beauty and power has been at the source of my work over the years and Helen F.’s recent passing was recently in my thoughts- it may have been the “seemingly” effortlessness of her surface that challenged me. Your comments and insight is much appreciated.
