Thank You Ophelia!

A couple packages showed up at my door step the other day and I was delighted to see that they were both from Ophelia Chong. I was pretty excited! I tore open carefully unsealed the envelope, and inside was this little box with a familiar shape on it.

Along with one of her trademark collage pieces she also included some very cool prints. Thank you very much Ophelia! I dedicate this song to you – Tommy Evans – Ophelia:

I doubt there are many people reading this that have even heard of Tommy Evans, let alone this song – but if you have, then you better swing by my house so we can high five each other.
