Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. – Edith Sitwell
Well, well, well…look who it is? I’m sorry, I truly am, please forgive me as real life is a distraction to kill all creativity. Yup, this past week, ah…nutzo, once again. But hey?

Allow me to give you another glimpse of Earth to Ash which is brought to you by our good friend… STRESS!Continue reading “Gone Ape”
Here’s a little taste of my home for ya…enjoy!!!
