a few weeks ago I was having a bad day at the hairdresser's and sent out a GT SOS for some emergency love, and man did I get it. I just reread all your answers and they made me tear up again. Thank you, all of you.

Update...I'm in New Orleans, staying with a friend and preparing to display my wares this weekend at the Piety Street Market. I have been busy and productive for the most part, although the last few days have been difficult again. Fortunately I feel ready for the market and anticipate a great day. It will be fun!

So thanks again to all who offered the love and nurture I was seeking. I still need a mama. Onward!
