I find myself lately taking a really long time to process life choices, changes, and their impacts. We moved back to the "Land of the free and the home of the brave" six months early - a country brimming with opportunity for those who have the gusto to pull up their bo...

It’s the start of a New Year. So much is on my mind as 2019 begins - do we keep walking down this path or do stop and go back to what we know.

Our month long summer vacation to Medellín has turned into an engaging trip brimming with opportunities. For me personally, I was able to attend a Campos de Gutierréz ceramic workshop, "Effects of Reduction in a Wood Fired Kiln". This post is a reflectio...

I almost gave up with the blog. I almost convinced myself that it was too difficult to raise a family, work part-time, make art, and write about it on top of everything else. I told myself I would just have to wait until a better time. But when if not now? In ethusias-...

This latest blog article is about looking at the world through the lens of a iPhone yielding 33 month old. I realise now how un-self-motivated I've been with writing when not only do I wince at the date of my last post but I also have to look up the password to log--in...
