WordPress has not even acknowledged nor fixed the error of telling folks that I have deleted my blog. Thanks for giving me the heads up, by the way. 🙂 Robyn LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hi Robyn. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments, and for letting me know about the WordPress challenges you have been having. I wonder if it’s a “simple” fix. It might be something you can do by checking to make sure the blog address listed on your avatar is correct. (It can be reached by clicking the circle icon in the upper right corner of the screen. You can access your profile and make changes if need be.) I’m not sure if you will be able to see this reply, so I’ll post it on your blog, too. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply perhaps, so, Carol! but, fortunately there are others who can dye, mend & sew 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply David, it’s so good to hear from you.

I couldn’t resist. It was laundry day and I happened to see the glitter from my “secondhand hope” shirt on the floor by the dryer. It made me laugh and wonder if the shirt would one day lose all its glitter from too many washes. I grabbed my camera to see if I could take a photo to record “hope” while it was still visible – and the poem was born… 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Wow that is awesome Carol!
