First of all, thanks go out to everyone who 1+'d the illustrations that I posted to my Google+ profile. The feedback is so rewarding. And just in case you were wondering what happened to me sharing passages from my bee book, I apologize for the delay. I have gone ahead and posted some excerpts from "Nobody Told Me I Couldn't..." on Goodreads for your enjoyment: https://www.goodreads.com/lizj_elizabethjcarter . My apologies, but it's no small thing to share your writing with the world. I have spent lots of time trying to make it all that it can be the best that I know how. Now I realize that it's up to other people to decide what they think of it. I've received a positive response to the 3-4 drawings (there are about 70 or more) that I have shared so far, but they only tell a small part of the story. My hope is that everyone who reads it will be able to recognize the positive messages that I hope to convey. I'm really looking forward to reading your comments, so be generous and don't hesitate to drop me a line.
