Fluffy Fibers Episode 35: Wardrobe Daydreams

This episode was recorded on Tuesday, Nov. 10, and was supposed to go live last night. After much thought I have decided to publish it. I hope this can give a moment of calm and serenity to all of you who are aching and praying for France today. Love, Life, Creation and Beauty must prevail.
Thank you so very much for your messages of support.
PLEASE NOTE: I am so very sorry about this, but there is a clicking sound that I wasn’t quite able to remove, and that might make listening through earbuds or headphones a disagreeable experience.

The video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKX2wt7z-cQ
