When I began my work sabbatical a few months ago I had no idea it would have liquid boundaries and wipe clean everything in its path. I haven't painted all year and, if you scroll down, you'll see that my posts here have been pretty slim.

Truth is, I haven't had time.

Don't let the word "sabbatical" fool you. United Way granted me the space to marry my passion and profession, and I responded by pouring everything I have into an organization I believe in.

I consider it a fair trade.
