The Wrong Room

My parents were both highContinue reading “The Wrong Room”

Creating a new space…

Creating a new space, based on your old space. Expanding on opportunities that are really right in front of you but you may never have noticed them. Multiple weeks of lockdowns and self-isolation from all that we do have given all of us time to think.  Some of us have become wonderful home school teachers,Continue reading “Creating a new space…”
