  2. Hello Mary, I chatted with you this afternoon at the Writers’ League office while we stuffed various pieces of writing info into the Yellow Bird brochure—I just read your “Flooding at Eagle Nest” piece. It was amazing—your photos are magnificent. I also read one of the comments re: your blog—and my jaw did drop open when I saw the name “Karen Stehling”—one of my dearest friends for over 40 years!!! what a small world! Enjoyed meeting you — and as Karen said a few minutes ago when I called her, “We three will have to have lunch sometime soon!” Pam Arthur

    PS—FYI, we finished stuffing the totem bags! and, our materials were much easier to handle than those NOT stuffed into Yellow Bird.
