Strange Spring — return of @johnclinock and/or art rat cafe

Happy happy news… our much-loved John Clinock is back on WP. 💐💛🎉 The Art Rat Café comes back to life, perhaps; we’ll see. :))

    1. Ahhh. So happy and so relieved, thanks so much for letting me know. I never know if I’m overstepping others’ art-bounds and all that, you know. :)) And wow I also feel so utterly pleased that these two were a pair, for you, too! Thanks very much indeed for the comment, John, and again, much appreciation for the bluetiful work you do. (Though I loved all your recent inspired musings; so I’ll admit, it was hard to choose. :)) xoxoxo
