Illustration Friday: Remote

How can this remote place feel so much like home...??

That's the question I asked myself over and over again as I toured Israel last year. It was a wonderful journey in so many ways, but one of the most striking impressions that I still can't adequately describe is how it felt like a homecoming for m…

Happy Fall Y'all!
The crazy work schedule I've been working (55+hrs. per week) is soon to get back to normal - and I hope to be able to blog more than once a week. In fact, I hope to be able to get back to a lot of the things I've been missing during the past 6 weeks:
