That evening my son called to tell me he has cancer. Talk about a game changer! In these last months of 2011 I have come to realize that there is nothing more precious than living in the moment. I am learning to appreciate the blessings of the path rather than to fret about where it leads.
My resolution for 2012 is to treasure every hour I am fortunate to play/work in my studio and to never again whine about something as empty and fatuous as "mojo." As the last minutes of 2011 tick away, my son is winning against his cancer. Whatever I can create with my talents is just icing on the cake.
