It has been ages since I have been here, I am ramping up now to come back with a bang. Family, schedules, all of it fell at my feet and stopped me from doing anything else. I missed being here, in the same way I miss journaling when I don’t do it for a while.
In October I went to Portland, Oregon to teach for Art & Soul Retreats. They have a new venue right on the Columbia river. My class faced the water, and we watched this happy face barge go by, right out our window.
My brother Andrew and I went canoeing on the Willamette River. We also went to see the Vaux Swifts, small fast birds, gather at Chapman Elementary School at sunset. Read about them here. See a video here.
Loved the venue, loved my classes. One of them I will tell you about on this post, it was called “Under the Influence”. The other two were lettering classes, which in this case I call “Journal Texting”. The advanced class designed an alphabet, and I wish I could include every single creative letter they did, but I did make something to show you. Check this out.
