Four Months

It's been four months since I've been to this area (the blog) of my life. When I think four months, it doesn't sound like a lot of time, but looking back,  so much happened. Here's a brief snapshot of my last four months:
  • We took our 1st family vacation since we've been married. 8yrs. This is HUGE because of what we went through the day we got married and the five years following. It's nothing short of a modern day miracle. Thanks God.                                                                                                
  • Traveled back to the New York Tri-State area...literally going to CT, NY, and NJ for an aunt's funeral, a wedding, and fun. Sometimes I miss the east, but every time we come home to Southern California, I quickly get over it. 
  • The daughter, Tiare Kiilani, of a friend passed away after a terrible accident while hiking. It still seems very surreal. Kii is an amazing girl that comes from an amazing family. She loved and inspired so many people and led a life that many of us only hope/ strive for in our lifetime. Kii was only 18yrs. old                                                        
  • My co-workers and I collaborated together on an artist book and to date our book has been in three exhibits. more about our book to come. Last month I went to San Francisco to speak at one of the Artist Talks for the Pacific Center for the Book Arts exhibit at the SFPL Skylight Gallery. It was an amazing experience and I'm happy to say that it went extremely well.
That's a teeny snapshot! Now, however, it's time to move forward. As we all know moving forward can mean different things, depending what's going on in our lives. For me, right now, it means spending more time here
