I know I've been M.I.A. a lot lately.  September is rough and life in October just keeps throwing me curve balls. Still it's time to come out of the cave and rejoin life.  I like the option of sticking my head in the sand and hoping my problems just go away. They never do and I'm made of stronger stuff than that. In my family we take a kind of in your face approach to life. Everything is A Stroke of Life the challenge is what are we going to do with the canvas and paint we r giving. It's good to be back. Lets start painting.
