What I do to pay the bills does not define me. Rather, I define myself as an artist and gardener. I have done these things professionally in the past and may again in the future. But right now I do them simply for the joy of it and I think it is what we love the most that defines us. And now I write for the joy of it, as well. Maybe someday, after I practice a bit, I might be bold enough to define myself as an artist, a gardener and a writer. I hope the joy comes through as you read.
