Nine Months and Other Thoughts

The project has twisted and turned through the journey. The nine months was not as I expected, and the end result is better than I dared hope. We began the third year with an eye to a landscape based project. That quickly unfolded beneath me as my ideas lacked depth, and I lacked belief in …
