Okay, it's been a minute since I checked in. So what have I been doing? Celebrating some wonderful family milestones, visiting family out-of-town, and woodshedding. I know you get the first two, but what about this woodshedding thing.

As I understand it, this is a musicians' term that means "going off to hone your skills". It's typically used by jazz musicians when they need time off to work things out. Well, since the celebrating and visiting quieted down, that's what I've been doing, woodshedding.

I'm practicing some new techniques , working out some ideas, just experimenting at a nice slow pace. I am excited to see what will will come of it. Maybe something, maybe nothing. But that's okay. The joy is definitely in the journey.

Right now, my mind it still working on slow, but my hands are getting pretty restless. So I am keeping my hands busy until my mind catches up.

And you can bet, I'll share it here. Until then.
