Leonora, are you putting pictures always here? Gosh, you are incredible to show pictures this way. I see others doing it and hope eventually I can learn to do it. I know I just need to experiment!!!

No, my very dear friend. I only do this when I have time. I am also thinking of attaching pictures on my past poems when given the chance. It looks great like a book. You better try it. In fact, I have already tried this before with my old poems (There were 3 poems of mine, i think). I've learned it before from our dear poet Debbie Guzzi; but the pictures were still hidden that time at poet notes.
