Hi!  My name is Zelie (not my real name, just a blog name).  I have created this blog in order to share my thoughts, which revolve around my hobbies (drawing, painting, writing stories, reading, watching old–and a selective few modern–movies, and taking photos, among other things), my Catholic faith, and just life in general.  This blog is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to whom I have a very special dedication and devotion.  Thus, this blog’s name, Under Her Starry Mantle, is an attribute to her ever watchful and motherly protection to all of her children on earth.
