    Congrats on this milestone! And thank you for the pictures, quotes, and past posts to contemplate. I like to let them soak in and percolate for a little while. 😉 But, already I can tell you that my favorite is the picture of your dad! He looks so young and full of energy and life playing that sax! I hope that you are enjoying your time with him. I’m thinking of you. ❤️

      Hey, Lisa! Thanks for chiming in…I’m at my bro’s right now so I can respond to these comments now. (no secure internet at Starbucks, the library or Dad’s remember??!!)

  5. Andy

    A great selection of posts you’ve provided here.
    I particurlarly enjoyed the post about the (he)art that you ‘need’ to produce, that inner expression that has to be brought out into the light whether anybody else hears it or not. As a writer I get that.
    Happy anniversary.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Thanks for perusing the posts, Andy!
      And keep on word doodling
      Hmmm, I think I just made up a new word! HA!
