I believe it’s always a good time to reflect – on our lives, on our friends and loved ones, where we’ve been, and perhaps where we’re going. Reflections and course corrections – they are almost unavoidable at some point during the holidays. While I try to always look forward and not back I do know that reflecting on and evaluating the personal events of the recent past can only better prepare us as we step forward.
With each passing year I realize that I have been particularly blessed with the love of family and friends. It can be a cold and lonely place without them. The joy they bring to me infuses all that I do. And my gratitude is boundless.
And so, as we prepare to engage winter one more time, before the holiday decorations disappear back up to the attic, I want to diverge from the usual imagery for a moment to acknowledge the two people who inspire me and make me whole – my partner, Cindy, and my son, Shaun.
So thank you for this brief indulgence, dear reader. And with that out of the way let me mention a few quick notes:
My exhibit at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca will be closing on January 9. So if you are in the vicinity before then please stop by.
I am busy with several new projects – some with fossils, some without; a soon to be released magazine spread (more on that to come); and more exhibiting soon. In the meantime, I hope to be spending more time in the studio creating and exploring and less time being the business man!
Best wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year.
I’ll end now with a few new ones from the “Devonian Drawer” Series:
