1. her work inspires me every time.

2. fishing the Ganaraska no matter the weather

3. this song makes me want to dance. guilty pleasure? nah. no guilt. only pleasure. (don’t waste your time on the video, just dance to the song. trust me.)

4. the fear of being alone spans the spectrum from old to young.

5. felting with the Wonder Women…the moment of realizing who was missing from the table. death is greedy sometimes.

6. two days straight of making art with brave hearts, in rooms full of stories.

7. my artist friends who gather here every Thursday morning are some of my favorite humans. whatever i have taught them about art pales in the light of what they have taught me about courage, generosity, and community.

brave art.

brave art.

8. watching connections happen in wordless places, armed only with pastels and quiet questions.

9. driving home down wet and dark country roads, longing for spring.

10. learning to let go and trust.
