Folded Word is featuring its first ever “Solstice Series Selections” and these will appear on their website here following the sun tomorrow, be sure to check it out.

Many thanks to the multi-talented folks at Folded Word Press, especially
I am very impressed with the video, time, and effort that goes into each Folded Word project. I cannot express enough gratitude to the editors for selecting “calligraphy” and giving it a lovely home in ink.
