  1. Thank you, Valerie, for including me in your journal readership. You write beautifully! I will savor your skill in showing us your world, both photographically and in writing. Thanks, Colin and Valerie, for inviting me into your new home; virtual reality is only missing three of the five senses. Enjoy each new discovery ~~ endless spectral hues of quail eggs on a stick. ~~ from Colin’s Mom
