Ending the month with random thoughts…

It is Saturday–the last Saturday of November. The final Saturday of the Liturgical year. A sunny, nippy, 2 days-after-the-Turkey-Feast-Day-Saturday.

Feathering Fridays: O, Beauty….

Fall presents a wealth of opportunities to share the new, the classic, and the reconfigured. We never create in a vacuum.
