First weekend of my summer vacation has been a busy one. Just finished polishing a special order of armbands - 6 bronze and 4 brass. I still have to do the final bending but it was easier to photograph the different patterns while they were still flat. Each armband took around a hour to make - from cutting the sheet-stock to the final polish ... my poor arse is killing me ... (mental note: I need to get a padded stool :).

Today ...
Today, and everyday I am grateful for waking up each morning beside the most beautiful and incredible woman I have ever met. I am grateful that she is my lover, my very best friend, my confidant, my rock, but most importantly... she is my wife. She lets me fly as high as I can dare to dream, but keeps me anchored in the here-and-now. She gives me strength when all I want to do is curl up and quit.
Today, and everyday I am grateful for dear friends who have been my teachers, accomplices, kindred spirits, colleagues and counselors.
Today, and EVERYDAY I am grateful that I have people who believe in me. With that there is nothing I can't do ... just watch me.
