Ten-dollar words describe my praxis:
Peregrination, peripatetic, itinerant.
Original practice remains in Olympia,
In second location, stable for decades.
Seattle office moved from place to place,
Sublets in Westlake, Queen Anne, Pioneer Square.
Current Seattle office shared with colleague,
Two days, come and go independently.
Recent addition of one hour in Tacoma,
House remodeled into sweet office.
Inner and outer flexibility echoed in multiple
Spaces in which to apply my professional craft.
Gratitude for generous and hospitable colleagues,
Grateful for generative work that keeps me on the move.
