This book was gift from Stone’s last client of the year. It came with a note: “for Joel, an artist at work. with thanks and best wishes.” He worked hard this year using his hands and his body. He takes a craft that can be business as usual and makes art. He respects his clients. [...]

This is a picture of my steady man living out his vision. A while back we took some time to evaluate our home, work, goals and visions. I asked Stone how he envisioned himself in context to our home and family and after a short pause he responded, “Buddha on a pirate ship.” I gave [...]


Tonight as I was making dinner Stone kept me company in the kitchen holding Ninu. He brought up our wedding day and as we each shared our favorite moments the memories cascaded out one after another.
