Fearfully and wonderfully made

At the recent Mini Maker Faire in Portland, Oregon, I was delighted to talk to James Stugart, the talented ice sculptor behind ICEovation. His sculpting talents extend beyond carving ice to making the tools he carves ice with. 

James showed me bits, blades, and scrapers made from other tools, each one designed to manipulate ice in a very specific way. James' tools fulfill their highest and noblest purpose when used to create beauty from ice. It's literally their raison d'être, their reason for being.

The Maker Faire was a timely and much-needed reminder of the joy I take in creating something new out of something old -- or out of nothing at all. It reminds me that each one of us is a unique, powerful, personal recipe of capabilities, experience, talents and drives. It reminds me I too am made for a reason, and I too must continually seek to fulfill my highest and noblest purpose.

Fearfully and wonderfully made.

Consciously choosing words and meanings can turn despair into celebration. 

A rose by any other name.

What’s in a pen name? Mystery, adventure, romance, and so much more.

How I'm made.

I’m a slow yet powerful athlete. When should I accept my physical limitations, and when, how and why should I try to surpass them?
