The Guitar – and being who we are

There are times when I just can’t sleep.  When that happens, sometimes I read a book.  Sometimes, I clean out my email inbox or Google reader (mind-numbing, right?) Sometimes, I just lie in bed and toss and turn. Other times, I do things like this:   I can only imagine what it would have looked…

So, for this first day of November and Art Every Day I created a piece that is really,…
