I just wanted to welcome you all back from what I hope was a very fun and restful summer. I spent most of my summer traveling both near (Nantucket, Cape Cod, Maine) and very far (Hong Kong) and taking classes (yes, I still like to learn new things). One of the things I focus on while I am traveling is seeing the art and culture of the city I am visiting. If there is something special about that city that is related to art (ceramics, frescoes, paintings, museums, graffiti, jewelry) or culture (food, dancing, music) I want to see it firsthand! I hope that you were all able to do something amazing this summer and I can't wait to share some experiences with you in class this year! Here are a few Instagram photos of my travels this summer.
