  3. hi Cymbria, wanted to know what happened when you followed….but when i click for more, it led me to the storythread page…..does your story continue – as you might say, i’m absorbed….in reading more!

  4. Hi Lynn ~ I’m so thrilled you’re “absorbed”! The Story Thread is a Blank Canvas Living blog serial that explores visual storytelling as an evolution of the classic novel form. Just as Dickens’ early readers had to stay edge-of-the-seat between monthly installments of his serialized novels, I must ask for patience from my dear readers while this story builds, post upon post, through time. Stay tuned for the next installment! (the restroom in question is being constructed as we speak~wink)

    Thanks!
    Cymbria

  9. Dear Cymbria
    Oh How I love reading your posts. I am glad you are back up and writing…you seemed to take a break for a bit. When I first saw the redhead near the photocopier I laughed……I definately remember some moments that I drove you nuts, with the ole’ redheaded firey temper of mine. I miss you…………Michelle

  10. Miss you too Michelle! Got nothin’ but love for my ol’ partner in M’trix shenanigans – hope you don’t mind me stealing your hair for such a feisty character. L actually took a pic of me taking the photocopier/sweater pic this morning… sigh… now there’s proof of your pal’s ‘creativity'(quote/unquote) for posterity… as if this blog isn’t enough lolz.
