There is beauty . . .

. . . in the amaryllis crown . . .

. . . and all around that crown . . .

. . . in both the office-scape and the campus-scape, as well as the city- and landscapes . . .

. . . and in the inscapes, too, of all the people I have had (and continue to have) the pleasure of walking, talking, and being with in those varied spheres.

Thank you! All of you. For everything!

It is so much fun to look up words...Where and when do you think words decided whether they were feminine or masculine?
