My one-year-old daughter helps me see things from an entirely different perspective, allowing me to constantly reinvent my surroundings. I often find that new ideas for a piece come to me vicariously; through my daughter's exploration of the world.
I feel very fortunate to have a couple of years off with my daughter, not only to watch her develop, but to immerse myself in my interests, removed from a teaching environment. Just as
