Closing Chapters...

This week saw the end of a chapter - my final days as an MFA student at the University of Edinburgh College of Art. Students have been slowly scattering to the wind - off to Taiwan, Poland, Quatar, Italy, the US, and far reaches of the UK. Hugs have been plenty. And a deer in headlights expression has become the norm as everybody wonders, What next?
     We'll just have to see. Because as sure as one chapter closes, another opens. It's bittersweet - sad and exciting at the same time. I'll miss the friends I've made here and the growth we all experienced together. But I'm also excited about the future and how all this fits in with my life.
     For now, I'm on a plane to Virginia to teach in the MFA in Children's Book Writing and Illustrating MFA at Hollins University for the next six weeks. After that? Stay tuned and find out along with me!
