Christmas XII

In a sense the end of this Christmas season seems more like the inception of the new year to me than January first. Thus I now find myself wondering what the next 12 months will look like, should look like. What do I want them to look like? For starters:

  • Sculpture: Create more of it
  • Board games: Play more of them
  • Start (again) learning Mandarin (Chinese)
  • Liturgical calendar and daily prayer: More of it
  • Movement forward on the Scissortail Art Center idea, whatever that looks like.

There are also murmurings of a jaunt for our tenth anniversary and some excitement surrounding a potential business venture for the wife and her fiber arts. What’s realistic and how we prioritize our 2011 hopes and dreams will become clearer in a month or so.

Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

      You could rent the space we were living in downtown in my parent’s building 😀 I need more people to play with. Hannah doesn’t really play (she’s too competitive) and doesn’t seem to be as many people interested in the strategy games up here as where we lived in Arkansas.
