This was the worst year of my life, so far. My dad was dying, and I made 27 trips to Phoenix to care for my dad, working full time all the way through. In the middle of it, the hardest part of all happened; my much loved nephew and Godchild, C.J., was tragically killed in a car accident at age 21. I was trying so hard to stay sane and steady, but it was just impossible. My work from this year is emotionally loaded, and all over the place in its subject matter and approach.
