with mouth nailed shut
her eyes shout
Powerful! The eyes speak for now and beyond, betraying no bitterness ,bearing no grudge, free from fear, rather speaking with a splash of bold bright hope!
Yes, they do! I have had several ideas rolling around in my head since I saw this piece, and this is the one that stuck. With eyes that say so much, who needs a mouth?

I hope you feel better–take care of you!
Sometimes a couple of words say so much, really good Susan, like the page layout.
Thank you, Doris. Glad you like the new “look” too :)

thank you Don!
