Where to Begin?

Hello all...
I will try and give the short version of where I went for the entire spring of this year.
In the last two weeks of this past January, I begin to feel a weakness I had never felt. Intermittently, I also began feeling short sharp pains in my chest, with chills and fever soon to follow. I went to the emergency room on Saturday, January 31st. I was admitted that night. It is now the second week in May. I have only been out of the hospital a few days.

I stayed in the hospital with a heart infection I had no idea I even had over three months. I come from a family where though we have our ailments, heart problems are rare, until now. I am "infection" free, but I have a heart murmur that requires medication.

I am making a cautious but hopeful recovery.

Without supplies for creativity (and to weak to use them if I had had them), as well as no Internet access, I got to know time, even just the clock on the wall, very very well.....

Thank God for friends and family-I cannot say it enough....

So, I have not abandoned "the Colorspeaker!" I will have to do a bit of connecting-I was in the middle of Ms. Mone Musel as the guest artist for January (yes, last Jan.) when I got sick.
My apologies to you, Mone.

As far as what is next, I will drop by fellow artist and blogger Casey Klahn at his blog
The Colorist to start!!

I will be back soon.
Thanks to everyone.
