‘COVID has kept me close to home with the exception of one June escape to Yellowstone. There I enjoyed the abundance of new life as portrayed in “Age of Innocence” and “Red Calf Season.” My own home in SW Colorado, however, is a miniature Nature Preserve of its own. I spent the rest of the summer painting birds and animals on my own property. “Dining Out” is a tongue in cheek title for the busy little chipmunks that swoop up the fallen sunflower seeds beneath the feeders. I do not enjoy cooking, so dining out has been sorely missed this year.’ Veryl Goodnight
