  1. Wow, wonderful imagery. A lovely piece! 🤍

    1. Thank you so much! ❤️

  2. Oh, Bravo, Franci! This is stunning. I love the word “gloaming.” <3

    1. Thank you so much, Colleen! 😊

      1. Always a pleasure. I had to share with you that the only browser that works on WP for me is Safari. I’m on a Mac so I don’t know if that is the issue or what. It was a nightmare trying to create a post with anyother browser. It would freeze and I’d have to get out of the post and go back in. I hope they get this under control soon.

        1. It seems WPs updates continually cause glitches. I have Win 11 and still use Vivaldi and sometimes, Firefox with no problem. I’m seeing a lot of grumbling about WordPress lately. They keep moving forward with the new editor and I feel some folks are fed up with it. Most people use WP to write and not design a website.

          What you’re going through is awful. I wonder if there are tests done on different types of computers before they release their updates.

          1. Well, I doubt it. It also has to do with the operating systems (Windows & MAC) and all the security issues we’ve had. Safari is a really basic browser but it works. I’m just thankful for that. WP is or has killed the theme industry. All of the themes look the same. It’s really quite sad. <3

            1. I recently read one of WP’s newsletters and supposedly new themes may be coming out. One of the comments from a theme designer indicated it’s hard to keep up with WPs updates. The problem is the new themes thus far are boring and I agree, they all look alike. I noticed a few of the new ones have footer widgets but no sidebar widgets, which I want both. I also read it’s not a good time to change themes. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

            2. It’s been an interesting couple of year’s hasn’t it? The December upgrade will be a doozy. 😂

        1. Thank you, Jules. The theme I was using left a lot to be desired in the comments section. I couldn’t find many of the comments so I changed themes.
