I don’t have much time to get crafty these days, but I do enjoy diving into fun projects with my son, Elliot. Of course, anything art is always a blast. But I find that I really enjoy constructing things most, whether it’s building with blocks, designing a track system for his trains, or creating a unique and wacky object with Tinkertoys. These are all things I loved as a child, as well as I got older, so it’s no surprise they are still of interest. I guess you can say I have always felt the need to ‘connect the dots’ in the world around me and create. Exploring this side of me through childhood is pretty damn awesome. And I feel very lucky to express my creativity with Elliot. I am learning to settle in those calm and inspiring moments where I can just be a kid again.
