I left Austin many years ago. I left to return to Fort Worth, the town of my up-bringing. When I left, it was less than glamorous. My mom was ill; my family needed my assistance; I was lonely. I’d been trying and trying to re-build my life in Austin, the hip-happening home of my life…

This has been a wild summer for me. I left a secure job, directing a studio that I opened, managing the teachers, the calendar, the workshops, the marketing… I loved it. I loved everything about it.
