Hi all,
Sorry for the mass email, but it seems my time is eaten by the studio.  I'm trying slowly to get to everyone.  I'm usually leaving for work around 8 in the morning and getting home past 11pm from the studio.  Work at the marketing firm is going well and is offering a good break from the constant studio practice. 
I just wanted to send a little update.  I'm doing well.  I'm alive.  And I really am very happy with my decision to come to DC early.  My studio is gorgeous.  I want to be here.  I want to be creating.  Its amazing what happens when someone feels comfortable in their own environment.  I'm really starting to make some good friends.  There have been some great laughs so far and the air around here is much lighter than in my previous year. 
My current work is well on its way.  I've got my first group crit in 2 weeks and I'm trying very hard to get several pieces ready for it.  My scale has taken a huge leap and I'm working right now on 4 pieces that excede my arm span. 
I am managing to get out and see the city a little on Sunday's.  Its what we call SundayFunday.  It helps us get some perspective and see a museum and maybe explore a new neighborhood together.  Anyways,  things are going well here.  How are they going where you are?
I want to live my life not by the regret of "what if", but by its possibilities. -ME
