    You really do treat your readers well. I loved this Valentine’s Day “card” you sent to all of us.

    And now, to help get you ready for visiting Seattle, I’m sending you a blog post that has photos from one of my favorite Seattle neighborhoods: The International District. Check out the fortune cookie factory: http://www.leciawphinney.com/2011/02/field-trip-international-district.html

    And Happy Valentine’s Day to you too!

    The caption on the card, The Dance of Love, is precious, love the sense of joyous celebration for the day of LOVE…the photo of the cat wearing the love bird as an accessory, that’s SO me. HA..

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Vivian! What a lovely sentiment! But, for me, the real valentine was your sharing with us the manuscript of your Damn France book. I especially love the beautiful paintings of the forest scenes; you have captured perfectly the way sunlight streams through trees in the forest. In fact, I love the quality of light in all your paintings. Thank you again for showing us the work you’ve been doing and inspiring us along the way. I can’t wait to buy your book!

    I’m so glad you’re a cat person. Dogs are fine, but cats, CATS! I know there are a gazillion cat books out there already, but I feel sure yours would be special, should you choose to write and illustrate one. (Hint, hint.)

    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Top Cat, and all the cats in your household –

    And a Happy Valentine’s Day to you. I celebrated it by wearing green to yoga (as did 80% of the class, coincidently) and watching the Westminster dog show with my pups.

    I never get tired of cat photos. Thanks for the laugh.

    Thank you for the chuckle and warm fuzzy feelings…kitties! Washing their butts-we call it playing the violin….I have one doing just that on the table next to me right now.
    And the added treat of you dancing with your cats, I love it!
    Have you thought about doing a line of greeting cards with your watercolors? I’d be first in line to get every single one….

    Yes!!! I’ll even bake something sweet for you. Oh who the hell am I kidding, I’ll get you something great from the village bakery…
