    1. Thank you so much, Liz!
      I have an amber necklace – it always seems to be glowing when I open my drawer 🙂

  1. Amber leaves an ambiance of memory and joy. And dragonflies – one of my favorite. In my new children’s book there’s a ‘hidden’ dragonfly on every page. Not set in amber, though!
    I tried to comment on your previous excellent post with a list of book titles for Christmas. I’m proud to say I’ve read at least six of your suggestions. Yay! WE Indie authors are amazing. Happy Thanksgiving!
