I’ve loved creating forever. I get lost in it. But it was the last thing I had time for and I often thought it was a wasted dream, joining my never-used PhD in the pile of adventures left unrealized. But no part of our dreams and lives are a waste. Our maker, who created these talents and dreams in us, can use even the “remnants” of our lives to make a difference on this planet. So here I am. My shop is my kitchen counter, my kiln is on the porch, and I create long after my kids and the sun have gone to sleep. And while there are 27 million human slaves in this world my goal is to use my dream to help fight for their rescue and freedom. Someday I hope to be closer to the front lines, but for now, my remnants will have to do.
