Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis - I'll be walking in this year's event to help raise money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's ongoing search to find a cure for these devastating diseases. It's a very personal cause for me since I developed ulcerative colitis four years ago and understand all too well what many people live with every day. I've been very fortunate to have found a treatment that works well for me, but many people are not responsive to conventional medicines and a true cure is what we all really need and want. So, I'd be thrilled if you'd consider supporting me in our efforts to find a cure!

Thanks very much for your attention and now on to today's submission for Illustration Friday...
My husband grew up in a very small town in northern Arizona and as is the case with many small towns, there was not a great deal to do in and around town. From the stories I've heard, it sounds like cliff-jumping may have been the highlight of many a summer for him. I'm not sure I'd have the nerves of steel required for such an activity!
