New projects and experiments. Trying to challenge myself creatively with a new endeavor (ok really it’s always been a hobby I’ve enjoyed but haven’t taken as seriously).

The Unknowable

“We are also ignorant of the actual coordination and connectedness of things, that is, of how things are really ordered and connected, and therefore it is better and indeed necessary for the conduct of life, to regard things as possible.”

Spinoza

With Open Hands

I went to Tucson, Arizona for the Gem and Mineral shows at the end of January/beginning of February on a buying trip for work, which was super interesting. It was hard not to be distracted by my personal interests, but I’m pretty disciplined, and when you walk those shows for days on end you have to focus to get through them in a timely manner.  All that said, I did buy one thing… kind of a weird choice, but I saw this large carved bone pendant of open hands and had to have it.  It’s slightly creepy but I’m into it. I think it belongs on a long chain, don’t you?

I’m sorry- I can’t seem to find what show this was from to give credit, but I just loved it.
