At the beginning of the year I thought I would attend college again and finish my degree. For the few weeks I was there, the most interesting thing I did was make a pipe cleaner plant sculpture (pictured above). I imagined a world where things like this really did grow out of the ground. I enjoy thinking of worlds like this. I wanted to see what going back to college felt like, if it felt like the right step. It wasn't. And that's ok - I don't regret the experience. It's simply that, on certain occasions, one needs to have the experience before making the decision. I call it "feeling it out". Like a baker kneading out the dough before putting it in the oven.
