A note to wish you a lovely June as I'm dashing around. We've numerous photos, thoughts, and tales from our recent travels that I hope to share soon. Tomorrow I begin a week-long iconography workshop; am eager to jump back into it after my month in a completely different and unrelated world. In the meantime, here is a lovely peony, captured yesterday in the idyllic small town of Minneapolis, Kansas as we passed through. I just about swooned to see them, my favorite flowers.
