‘Tis the season to give thanks, something I find to be a great source of strength, hope, and peace year round. Among the things I thank God for this fall are safety in all our many travels this summer, His provision, and for all the exceptional students that took my classes this year. All the students left my classes with the same number of fingers they came in with, which is a pretty good deal. I also believe they all went home with a few new tools to help them in their carving. While most did leave with metal tools, chiefly the Nicholson #50 rasp; they also left with a new awareness of how lines, planes, and forms work together to draw one’s eye over, around, and through a highly polished sculpture; and to varying degrees, the ability to craft such an object. I am left with the privilege of getting to know some really great people, and sharing what I have learned, over the decades, with them. It is extremely easy to give thanks for that.
Speaking of classes, I have finished my teaching schedule for 2009, and it is a busy one.

“To be seen through the eyes
of one who looks past your flaws,
to be held in esteem
or perhaps even awe.
To elicit great joy
when you come through the door,
to be valued as priceless,
perhaps even more.
These are the values
contained in a friend,
true to the end….”
