There is much that is symbolic about this little side business, but I would rather have you read Jay's own eloquent words. Please click here, and hit the "About" button.
He writes a blog on his design philosophy that also reveals much of his subtle humor and life philosophy. For instance, see his description of re-designing his sister-in-law's Santa Monica studio apartment:
While I'm at it, a movie in which Katherine had a one-line part (i.e. "Pregnant Bridesmaid") is now available on DVD through Amazon. Not Since You, a "Big Chill" type wedding reunion, was filmed here in Athens, and shows many great local scenes. The primary action takes place at "The Hill," a fascinating and beautiful historic property owned by our friend Lee Epting. His son, Ashley, was the producer of the film. Side note: Katherine's bridesmaid's luncheon was the most unbelievably elegant and beautiful I've ever attended. (Or even seen pictures of in a magazine.) It was hosted by her dear friend Sally, Lee's step-daughter, and her mom Jerry, in the dining room of the 1820's house. Need to find some pictures to show you. (Before digital.) Sally, her brother, and many other close friends have been married there over the years, so it was the perfect spot for a wedding movie.
Okay. That's it. Someone's been patiently paging me for quite a while. Good thing he knows how to entertain himself. Very creative!
I guess that would be a theme today... I love to celebrate the God-given gift of creativity as uniquely manifested and expressed through His children. I love to see people make something new, especially when it is made from things like lemons or ashes. Or when old things are refurbished and given new life.
Whatever your gift is...
let it shine!
