Here in Beacon, it felt like winter would never relent; and while there's still a little chill in the air, the light has certainly shifted.  

One of my projects, 121 Restaurant, has reached substantial completion, is open for business, and we're working through punch list.  

I head to Texas today, where I get to spend a week with the family who raised me.  

I see light at the end of the tunnel of residential construction projects that have been underway, and I can turn at last turn some attention to my poor website.  

Time is ripe to sow new seeds of creativity for some great new projects, and I can also get back to tweaking those furniture prototypes that have sat latent since March.

Bonus: when I get back here, the gorgeous floors that severely needed to be refinished in my house will be refinished at last.  (Thank you and shout out to my DH).  And ....  stay tuned for what next!
