Austria, May 2019

While I’m of course meticulously planning towards the workshop in southern France in fall of 2020, that doesn’t mean I’m sitting at home.  On the contrary!  I’ve been traveling more lately than I have in a long time, for many reasons- my lagniappe kids*, my daughter’s senior year, my husband’s schedule, to name just a…
