Oh! Hello, there.

So much has changed since I first started this blog six years ago. Most significant among them is that my relationship to "an investigation of beauty" is so different. Now, when I remember this blog, I wonder who I must have been when I created and loved it so fervently.

In these several years that have passed, the very biggest shift in my life is that I am more deeply involved in the making of art now than I was during the heyday of Hundreds of Ways. This is a really sweet revelation, and upon first reflection I think we might conclude that this Beauty project was a sort of stepping stone to the place where I am now—a place I have wanted to be for so long.

But there's a bit more too.

Now, more comfortably seated at the studio table whirring away a some beloved something or another, I feel a new desire emerging—that of getting to write for a living as well.

Though my priorities look different now, (though I suspect they are just differently expressed in my life these days), this blog is such sweet indication of the fact that I have been writing publicly for some time already.

Amazing. And, frankly, quite a relief.

Thanks to all of you who have quietly been reading these words and considering these thoughts in my absence. I love you. Really. Thank you.

And thanks to Blogger for providing us such enticing blog-traffic infographics to peruse.

It's been a good six years.

More soon.
