Creativity: A Family Tradition

Both of my parents are extremely creative. Really, my brother and I had no choice. My Pops would've loved for us to have followed in his military footsteps, his contributions to the fields of aviation and leadership being quite enviable. But what I remember best is how many creative endeavors my Pops tackled in his off-time. He is a carpenter, a water-color painter, a sand-blast artist, a civil war re-enacter, an expert shooter, an amazing cook, a historian... The list goes on.

When I was home for Christmas, I photographed some of his handmade and hand-painted ornaments (made from clothespins), in an effort to record a small part of his creative talent.

This is me, my Pops, and my brother Teej, circa 1990.
