Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Hello Friendlies...


Have I told you recently how much I appreciate you?

Yes.  You, sitting there with your fingers on the keyboard and maybe a half-drained cuppa or a basket of Summer-ripe Sungold cherry tomatoes that you're eating by the greedy handful (oh wait, that may be me).  You, the one reading these words right now.

I think you are wonderful.  Positively Brilliant.

Even when I'm not able to respond to each individual comment on a post, please know that your words have NEVER gone unnoticed or unappreciated.  Feeling your support and encouragement has lent me wings when my own were becoming tattered and badly in need of rest.  You make me laugh with your quips and glow with your friendship.

And maybe most importantly, you make me remember that we (WE) are never alone.

So whether you comment regularly, once in a blue moon or have yet to click that button, know that you are on my mind today, as I send up huge thanks with every breath.

All my love and a sprinkling of pixie dust,
- Umber
