Would you believe it? This is my 496th post since I started writing it. In the beginning I expected to become a chronicler of small business and independent designer. (My dreams are always big.) This blog has developed into a journal of my observations. I hope you all have enjoyed it as I've stumbled my way through my life as a parent, grandparent, friend, craftperson and yearner. I wonder where the next 496 posts will lead.
