5 years ago I found myself moving: Again. Although slightly inconvenient, moving had grown to be my normal. By the time I was in my early thirties, my house changes had nearly reached my age.
Aloha Portland! It's so nice to finally meet you! We only have 24 hours together. What shall we do?

Hello San Francisco! It's so nice to finally meet you! We only have 10 hours together. What do we do?
Not long after we arrived at our off-grid homestead, we realized that our hot water heater had burst, and drained our 5,000-gallon water tank. Our entire water supply.

The moment I accepted that the worst might happen - Further delays to my flight would force me to spend the night in an airport - everything changed.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
