Two Thousand Thirteen

2013 is off to a quick beginning - it's hard to believe that today is the last day in January. But before January ends, I wanted to share a few things that I would like to do this year:


1. Pause - I'd like to find some time each day to pause, whether that means taking a walk, giggling with my kids, reading a good book, tending to my plants, or just sitting still - this will be good.

2. Begin a linocut study of everyday things - I love Pablo Neruda's Odes to Common Things, which will be the inspiration for this new line of work.

3. Take a Calligraphy Class - this is just for fun; I've always loved the art of calligraphy and would like to give it a try.
