Sorry for the MIA status for the last week and a bit. I had a severe allergic reaction to Wattle ( a reminder that Australia has some dangerous stuff), a usually innocuous national flower - unless of course, you are allergic to it like I am. The pollen infiltrated (there is no other way to describe it) my lungs, got infected and lo and behold, I am struck down with pneumonia. This,of course, made the asthma that has not bugged me for decades rear its ugly head.
I am getting back on track, thankfully, and am busy trying to finish my next piece. I hope none of you thought I was being rude, I was just totally incapacitated.
