K.D.

It was a beautiful fall day last October. Sunny, warm, and a perfect day for a relaxing bike ride.  As I loaded my bike into the car, I felt anything but relaxed. This bike ride was to try to forget the stress that I had been under the past week. It was following me around like a dark cloud. I drove to the greenway, a place where I had often come to unwind.

I’m always amazed that when I introduce myself as an artist and ask if the child wants to play with clay, the television is no longer a focal point.
