  1. This is the third time back to this most excellent post. You are a master storyteller, Jo. You bring details to vivid life and allow readers to cherish the transitions which are based on the ancients. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Carina. I agree – Carina is the very best!

  2. Ahh Jo; you romantic, wonderful man.

    Much Love

      • Thank you, Carolyn, for your kind note. Yes, under the circumstances, we are staying at home – focused on healthy lifestyle. A lockdown of 21 days is on throughout the country and we are on day two. I hope and pray we can eradicate this virus menace out of the planet asap. Hope you, your beloved husband, family and friends are all keeping well and safe. PS: I now note that notifications about your posts are not appearing in my mailbox. Please keep in touch. Take care, Jo.

      • Lovely to know that you and your loved ones are healthy and well, Jo. Yes, staying at home is, I believe, the best we can do.
        We are awaiting the notification of a total lockdown at any time. Our state borders are closed or closing, with overseas travel now banned.
        We, Keith and I and immediate family members are doing quite well. As you say, Jo, it is a matter of living a healthy lifestyle, as much as is possible.
        I am not surprised that notifications of posts are not forthcoming. I, too, have had to renew subscriptions to many blogs I follow.
        Yes, I will keep in touch.
        Much Love to you
