One thing I had hoped to 'get to' during the visit to my hometown last week was updating my website. Under another set of circumstances I might say, regretfully I wasn't able to get to that task, but the truth is, I had a remarkable and bustling time and don't regret a moment. But dear reader do not think my time in Michigan was in the least bit unproductive. Not only did I participate in a flurry of organizing, mending, cleaning, meandering, chitchatting, chewing the fat and shooting the breeze, I also diddled in my sketchbook. So while my website remains hopelessly, nay embarrassingly, out of date, my current sketchbook, once unremarkable, has provided me with much fodder for future work. And isn't that one of the goals for time away?
