threads

Last night my wife and I attended art gallery openings related to our May Fine Arts Month here in Eureka Springs. Seeing old friends in the arts community, I was reminded of how it feels to be tightly woven within the threads of community. We form a seamless tapestry. Pull one thread, and the entire community life is effected.

Today my wife and I will travel to New York City to attend our daughter Lucy's graduation from Columbia University. These four years have passed quickly. I seem to be left speechless. What is there to say, but that we are very proud of her and the young woman she has become? We trace many of her blessings of character and intellect to the tightly woven threads of of our community that we have been part of. To find oneself so deeply, and tightly woven within community would be the gift I would wish for each of my readers.

I may not have much time for the blog during the next several days. If you are needing something to read on your visit here, you can find a link to my published works here, or you can use the search function on the site to explore a variety of subjects related to hands-on learning.

Or take a break. Make, fix and create.
