Art is a weft that adorns, holds together, and vitalizes the strands of life. Even in the simplest tasks, even in the plainest objects, there is meaningful poignancy.

In September 2013 the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Austin Speech Labs, Shilpa Shamapant, asked me to write a brief article about Casey’s recovery for the annual newsletter. I typed up a few paragraphs, emailed them off to her and … Continue reading
