Alright, so the Snow Leopard team is blogging today about
what one thing we've each created that is the most sentimental and treasured.

I thought this would be an easy topic.


The truth is, I have no idea.
I don't know.
In mulling over all the childhood projects, college assignments,
experiments, failures and sucesses, blah blah blah . . .
nothing stands out.

Aside from being a co-producer of The Monkey,
I'm not sure what else I've ever made that I was totally and completely satisfied with.
Everything has been a stepping stone,
so it all has value because it's led me here.
The journey of making is what I treasure.
If that makes any sense at all.
{If not, just leave it at "I don't know."}

Some of my teammates have great answers to this question.
You can find real and sensible responses on their blogs:

Meanwhile, I'm working on some petite-stoned rings today.
(Petite in MY mind.)
Let's see if I'm capable of making things smaller than all of planet earth.

Banjo is at my feet. He hates when I hammer but loves me anyway.
He's been hard at play and has found a lifelong friend in Twittles, the studio cat.
It's a chaotic little community in there, those two and the tools and the music and me.

That dog is an instant smile maker.
A klutz like his mama.
All heart and no head whatsoever.

Happy Monday!!
