This has certainly been one of the most challenging years of my life. Certainly the separation of my spouse has left an unhealing scar in my heart, but also the death of my uncle and friend and my own health issues, have made it very difficult for me to do what I need to do.
I am hopeful, like every year around this time, that the new year will usher newfound hope and joy in my life. The university has been gracious in allowing me to teach photography and illustration on top of what I've already been hired to do, which is fixing computers and running the infrastructure of an entire faculty. This has been a blessing.
I hope that all of you who are struggling will also find prosperity and happiness in 2017. May all of your work shine in this vibrant artistic DA community we call home.
and all the best in the New Year
