Mostly Uncle Sam kept me away.

Complicated taxes this year kept me busy til the last minute... now to get caught up on other stuff. ONE last kudo for Asilomar student Pam Moyer. Pam came having never painted, never quilted anything and was determined to paint and quilt her piece while in class. She came with ready to go drawing and photo from a mexican open market she'd visited north of Mexico City.
Pam had been taken with the determination and strength of the central female figure... a woman lifting, carrying a bulging crate of heavy tomatoes... never complaining... just working hard. Pam considered this hard work was surely only part of a very difficult day where this woman would later go to her home and cook and care for the rest of her family. Sleep might be short but welcome at a hard day's end.
