It's been nearly a year since I updated, and a lot has happened. After I returned from Rwanda, I got a serious case of swine flu, which knocked me out for most of the summer. In October, I lost my job, then got caught up in legal issues. Now I'm still looking for work, and it's not easy, but I am staying stubbornly optimistic. Meanwhile, I have gotten back into painting. Hope you enjoy my recent work.
