Alex had another great soccer game Saturday. He had his second goal in two games, a left-footed blast, one-timer, off the near post. I'm really proud of how he's stepped up his focus and effort in both the pool-training and one-on-one with me. His dedication has really started to pay dividends in the matches. I also love that he still wears his Star Wars watch during the games.
Starting a new category today: studio shot. I take pictures of shapes and images inside my studio that strike me as interesting in and of themselves, without any context of what project they are a part of. They are also indicative of the level of chaos and creative energy flowing through my work space. Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as I do.
I am creating art at a rather phenomenal pace this year. This leap forward is exciting and invigorating and means I have turned a corner from one stage of my life to the next. My beasties are bigger, my body is healing, and my energy level is hitting all new highs. There are a handful of important reasons for these changes, and those of you who have lifted me up on your shoulders with love, friendship and support deserve a million thanks. It will take me a lifetime to repay each of you, and I look forward to many happy days ahead returning the support.
This also means I'm building things far more quickly than I can document their creation here. I'll start to catch you up in the days ahead. Since blogging seems to take a back seat to other social media these days, I'm revamping my sidebar to include everything I've fabricated since the first of January.
Philip Williams is the author of The Griffin. He is also a sculptor, a painter, and the father of three amazing beasties.
Enjoy simple pleasures. Push the envelope. Love what you do. Take nothing for granted.
Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself, 'How did I get through all of that?'
