Leadership was another interesting aspect of the course work and though I wasn't explicitly engaging in a leadership position it was neat to see those skills emerging from within the student cohort.
As summer settles in, the spring is subject to reflection. It can be tricky to evaluate performance when your measure of success is not in line with the socially accepted standards. That being said, it feels like things are moving in the right direction and though there is always room for improvement... the current path is certainly pleasant. The future will consist of more of the same, with a bit of refinement.

Things are going very smoothly these days. Work has been coming in at a consistent yet manageable flow. There is even some degree of security with contracts being signed for future projects and invitations to new positions. I feel compelled towards some small scale expansion/refinement of my processes, even bringing others in on some appropriate projects.
Within all of this there even exists a bit of relaxation and freedom. Time to garden, tan hides, draw and mess around with my bikes. Like I said, it's almost like I know what I am doing...
There is certainly a mountain or two to climb in the not too distant future but I feel comfortable in my current state and I imagine it will be an excellent challenge with some appreciable benefits upon completion. I will let you all know how it goes. Until then... Be Well.

On a differnet note, I have been doing a bit of drawing from life and thought I would share some of this with the world. This is from a recent trip to San Deigo's Mission Beach.

But after speaking with a number of "frequent users" I realised that there is more to these posts than my own cathartic musings. Some people (I won't mention any names), some where (I won't point my finger) like to see my art work and it makes me really happy to oblige.
As far as the rest of life goes... I'll be brief. Peru, work, work, work, Peru, bike riding and "poaching" fruit, backpacking, Advanced Permaculture Training, two lost sketchbooks, no work, no work, no work, Holidays and a trip to the Bay Area and the most recent chapter involves a return to my old haunts at the alma mater. Weave a beautiful woman through all that racket and that sums up 2012 for myself.
Things are going well enough now. I am still balancing a number of projects and some tasks are going better than others. All of them seem to fit into the big picture and I imagine I am learning something from each of them. The future holds some cool new potentials and I will do better to keep those interested parties up to date. On the horizon... my work will be published in an international magazine, my worms will be free ranging in the garden and hopefully my current sketchbook will stick around long enough to reach completion.

This has been an interesting time of year. The work load is growing, and growing and growing and growing. In fact I have never had this much work on my plate. It's an interesting position to be in and I suppose it qualifies as good problem to have... given the alternative.

Two weeks ago, I was up against the ropes. An ambitious challenge had turned into a lethal opponent and the loss of our support team left the remaining competitors with more than they had bargained for. As the stress mounted a valuable lesson was learned. The towel was thrown in and for a brief moment, I was severely dissappointed.

Its fun to embrace the flow of life as I move from phase to phase. Each little step has its own unique character from which I try to learn. This ungrounded sensation taught me a good deal about the value of space. Finding good space, sharing space, not having space. It all takes a certain getting used to.
