Reflections on Space
Any 'designer' can design you a sofa, hang drapes, get you a lamp, put a bulb in it and turn it on. I'm not interested in any of that. I'm interested in story.

A twig. A needle. Some lichen. Feathers from nestings past. A safe place. Protected from the sun. Sheltered from the wind and rain. Guarded from predators and threats. They do this. Each year. Like clockwork. The chickadees and the stellar jays. This year, at my home in Incline Village, Joyce has returned. … Continued
It was Tuesday morning. A day of rest for me. Back then. Sundays were defined by handfuls of Advil, healing a stressed out back. And finger exercises to improve the blood flow and feeling in numbed-out fingertips, battle worn from zip ties and floral wire. Mondays were rest… Just sleep. Sleep in. Eat a middle … Continued
