Thank you all so much for your caring comments about Chopin; we are moving through the hard moments. The nearly 18 years with her was worth this sadness, and I'm sure all pet lovers feel the same.
Moving on to a a lighter topic, if you love printmaking and bookbinding as much as I do, you'll want to take the five-odd minutes to watch this video. Awesomeness from Abigal Uhteg's The Complex of All of These and Women's Studio Workshop.
Thanks again to all of you. It all helps.
