Designs By Mary Rudakas

I love the nuances of the seasons.  For example, the beginning of Spring is so different from the end of Spring.  I notice new subtleties and insights each year, like revisiting a favorite book or movie.  What could be more fun than hailing fresh new trends while observing some of Earth’s oldest celebrations?
