Positive Action When the Wave Crashes Over You

When the day to day becomes like a tidal wave threatening to pull us under whether we’ve grabbed that life-sustaining breath of air or not, how do you cope?

Happy 2019!

  Travel safely, celebrate all you cherish and we’ll see you in the New Year!

The Tail of A Year

I’m not big into new year resolutions. I find that turning over a new leaf really does hold a lot of promise, but without an actionable plan, most new endeavors fall flat fairly fast.

Happy Hanukkah!

YHWH bless you and guard you; YHWH make His face shine upon you show favor to you; YHWH lift up his face upon you, and give you peace. ~Bemidbar 6:24

Water dripping in the same place on a rock will eventually, molecule by molecule, wear a path into that stone. The longer…

What Time in a Clay Studio Taught Me

It’s funny how something can be so part of your life. You are in it every day for so many months or even years. And then it’s back there buried under a bunch of time. You don’t think about it for so long that you can almost forget that it was part of your history….
