New Roomie & New Beginnings

Hello folks. My brother, Ryan, has been in town visiting since last weekend – hence the lack of Voxing… We've been having fun doing stuff.

Here's Ryan while we were at lunch one day…

Zooming in on the important part…

We went to the Arboretum one afternoon. Just gorgeous. Beautiful weather, baby ducks, pretty trees… A perfect day.

Oops… Comcast guy is here… Will finish later… Byeeeeeeeeeeee!

Take Two… Ok, I'm back. Comcast problem turned out to be a caption setting turned on… Weird…

So, it looks like Ryan might be staying here for two months, ergo the title of the post. He is transitioning between living in Washington, DC and moving to New York to pursue his passion of working in the music industry. I am transitioning between working at JMU and going to Penn State to pursue my passion of a PhD in Communications. We decided to celebrate our transitions by making special mugs at the pottery place. New beginnings… for both of us…

Ryan's mug. Symbolism includes a Phoenix – rising from the ashes – and skulls – in Native American tradition, death is celebrated as a new life.

My theme was Spring… bright happy colors, flowers blooming, and my personal motto – Follow Your Bliss as a secret message to myself inside.

Finished products should be back on Thursday. I'll post pictures. Yay!
