Welcome!  ...

Playing music, carving wood, dancing, gardening, building, writing -- we do what we enjoy, and enjoy what we do. Life is so full and we appreciate all it gives us, opportunities and challenges alike. We are never bored, often happy -- learning, loving, living, laughing. Do we have downs as well as ups? Of course! How boring it would be if it were not so. But the dips help us decide what it is we want, and what we want changes as we continue to grow. We are now in our 60's (Sue) and almost 70's (Steve) and looking forward to where we will be next year, and the year after, and the next ... But it is this moment we relish most and we're happy to share some of our moments with you. We are as drawn to the artwork of the spider and the incredible beauty of fresh fallen snow in the trees as we are with the technology that allows us to connect with so many of you. What a fascinating world we live as part of.

We welcome you into our lives via our website. May you have a good time while here, and leave with inspiration and a smile.
