I woke up worrying today. My better self told me to "chill" and give myself a day for breathing and reflection. I found this 15-year-old silly self portrait cane in a cabinet the other day and realized I’ve been playing with polymer for a very long time. FYI, the cane sliced nicely.

Jump in the way-back machine with me and visit some of these old friends and projects (some links are outdated). A day for historic reflection and calm.

    Way-back machine, indeed! I miss Kathy Amt — I wonder how she’s doing. That was a nice stroll down memory lane! Thanks!

      This was a fun romp in the past….for a newbie like me, it really is a history lesson!
      Thank you

        i think we all did “silly self portraits” when we were 15.

          Great cane, Cynthia! But, you’re WAY prettier than that! It was fun to go back and look at all of those photos and reminisce a bit. Thanks for sharing them.
