    Hi,

    I also know about a great workshop that will be facilitated by James Nave'. I've taken two from him in Oklahoma City and Taos. They were both outstanding. This workshop is in April. You can read about it at http://www.jamesnave.com/marble-house-project-poetics-of-work/

    Petals of Life

    Petals of life are as petals falling from a flower. Each slowly growing into a beautiful vibrant piece. Then ever so slowly losing stability and gently falling away. Beautiful but fleeting. Completing its mission to cheer and fragrance the world with its presence.
