I love the form of an ampersand. It's so beautiful and conveys so much with just a simple swirl. It always suggests something more, something else... "and then what..."
I'm thankful that I've got a few things in my bag of tricks to keep me happy. I'm thankful that I can teach and mentor newer educators working in my field. I'm thankful that I can paint and communicate my creativity with everyone who sees it. And I'm thankful that I still have a hand in the culture of the rural roots I grew up in. It's important.
Those are my "and then whats." We all have them. The things which make our lives whole.
