Welcome To My Blog

Occasionally I like to write a few paragraphs on a subject other than sculpture or mosaics.  Writing serves several purposes for me … (I) When remembering or thinking about something, writing on paper with a pencil forces me to organize my thoughts.  (II) Writing often gets me laughing at my own pretty bad jokes, me being my best audience.  (III) A person exploring this blog might actually read something of interest or be prompted to write something for themselves.

My intent is to add something new to this blog every 10-15 days.  Enjoy!

Thanks, Rosano
