I was a Fine Arts major in college and my favorite medium was clay. My ceramics professor taught me to work hard to achieve goals for myself. Most of my art teachers shot my ideas down but he worked with me on developing them. Sculpting is one of the loves of my life and one day I will get back in the studio.

Every time I drive by a Christmas tree farm or see Christmas trees for sale on the side of the road I am reminded of my college ceramics professor. He owned and operated a Christmas tree farm during the holiday season. The best part about his classes were the stories he shared from his life. He once told the class that when he saw a family that looked like they didn't have much money and could really use a free Christmas tree he would tell them they were the 100th customer and the tree was on the house. Sometimes it's easy to forget that this is the season of giving and a simple gesture can mean a great deal to someone else.
