A freelance graphic designer, I come from a wonderful background of fine, graphic, and textile arts. My father—a painter and graphic artist—encouraged my love of typography and photography. My mother taught me the joy of working with fabric. There will come a day when I merge the two.
From my father, the artist, some sage advice: "Wake up early, be on time, work hard, plan for the future. Be a fool." I learned far too late just how right he was.

Funerals are a lot like weddings. Two big factors: one is sad. one is not. But, weddings you have a year to plan—funerals you have three days.
It always seems too early until it's too late...have conversations now.
We need to recognize that anything can happen...and when you think like that, you tend to find more joy in the moment, in daily life.
Say "death" out loud...we need to get over the fear and the language and have meaningful conversations while we can.
