This is an idea that I firmly believe and the falling leaf sums it up perfectly in my mind. We're all travelers and, like it or not, there is an end to the journey. Personally, I choose to make as many side trips as possible, filling the journey with all the knowledge, enjoyment and goodness that I can. When my travels are finished, I know that I will have "grokked" them to the fullest!
Since I don't have another show until July, I'm working on lots of experiments in the studio. Hopefully soon I'll have the groundwork laid for some fine new work!
