'Tis the season to give thanks, something I find to be a great
source of strength, hope, and peace year round. Among the things I
thank God for this fall are safety in all our many travels this
summer, His provision, and for all the exceptional students that
took my classes this year. All the students left my classes with the
same number of fingers they came in with, which is a pretty good
deal. I also believe they all went home with a few new tools to help
them in their carving. While most did leave with metal tools,
chiefly the Nicholson #50 rasp; they also left with a new awareness
of how lines, planes, and forms work together to draw one's eye
over, around, and through a highly polished sculpture; and to
varying degrees, the ability to craft such an object. I am left with
the privilege of getting to know some really great people, and
sharing what I have learned, over the decades, with them. It is
extremely easy to give thanks for that.
