Oh Rossie, you must think I'm an airhead. I mailed this block off ages ago and could have sworn I posted it. Guess not.
The word I chose for you is my favorite season, autumn. The hardest part of the whole challenge was settling on a word. It's amazing how many phrases or words I was able to convince myself might be used by someone else or could (even remotely) be considered religious or nationalistic. Turns out autumn was my first choice over any of the others I thought of. I love the colors, the weather, the way the air smells at that time of year.
After mailing this to you I realized that perhaps I was not supposed to border the block on the top and bottom, so I hope that hasn't been a problem. I'm looking forward to seeing all the messages you collect from all your "bee" friends.
