Letting Go of What You're Holding On To. . .

I feel like the I am standing still and the Universe is moving around me. Things are coming along, lots of things are getting done, but I don't feel like I've moved. The baby is coming in November, so I'm moving like a crazy man trying to get everything done.

Worth The Wait

Hey Folks,
I know it's been a little while since my last post, but I think you'll agree it's worth the wait. The past week and a half has been really productive! I built a hot wire for cutting foam; I have my first little guy cut out and coated in plaster and I've started work on the big Peartato. My Two assistants Humberto and Jessie have been really helpful. Hopefully we can stay this productive all semester.

After his spa treatment, he got some sun by the pool.

I used an old model train transformer to make a hotwire.
It's really cool. . . When it works.
