  • On Peonies

    On Peonies

    Peonies are synonymous with the ephemeral nature of spring. Full of anticipation. Here for a moment; gone in an instant. Only to cycle back around next year. Certainly with more lessons to teach us.

    Make It Home

    Seek inspiration in all places. Be present, and set yourself up for success. For far too long I neglected creating a proper workspace. Worse yet is I had he time and resources to change it. Of course the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, and the second best time is today.…
