photoToday I’m thinking about crucibles, about melting metal in a container that itself can withstand the heat. I’m thinking about the amalgamation of molten metals within that container, and how they react to produce something entirely new. I’m thinking about Arthur Miller. And I’m thinking about times of great trial that help to fashion who we are, and more than that: they fashion who we could be.

One object. Multiple things to think about.

My first book, Upside Down Kingdom, is available on Amazon. Crucible thinking is getting me toward book two.
