I don't know about anyone else, but as much as I love lilacs--and I do! I have a story called Hunting for Lilacs for goodness sakes!--that redesign with the lilacs got to me. Each time I looked at it, I felt old for some reason. Maybe it has to do with the fact that lilacs are purple and purple reminds me of the poem with the line, "When I am an old woman I shall wear purple."
Whatever the reason, I needed another change in this forum. And here we are with a background picture from the blogger choices. How long will this background last? No clue.
But I'm breathing easier already. Which means I hope that my writing will flow easier, too. Only time will tell, of course.
