Dear Caughtinbetween! Welcome to my snippets. You have no idea how happy I feel knowing that you read my snippets! I do hope you will continue to respond more. I did see a picture on the net of the mountain view you speak of and I was telling my DH that perhaps we should start celebrating, no vehicle on the road day or some such thing so that we at least start contributing better to our environment - he of course squarely said, i need think of economy too not just stay misty eyed about nature And thank you for your words about my writing (about nature) and you have no idea how much it please when someone says they thought of me on seeing something beautiful in nature. We don't know one another but this bond....I am going to cry! You know I am playing shuttle badminton with my kids as much as I can and sometimes, well many a time I miss hitting because I am thrilled with the birds in the sky and my daughter constantly goes " not again mom! I don't know what you see!" But then let me be the first one to tell you - take me out to live in a remote area, I crave to come back to a city! Looks like I want this and that too....... Thank you for your sweet response.
