I just thought I would read this. Great article on getting insperation for a project: "For my entire life, when I’ve needed to recharge, I’ve sought out the salty air, the perpetual tides and the bounty of the sea. It’s been medicine, nourishment and inspiration for my life and work. I grew up near the sea, and my love for oysters came from spending part of my childhood on the Isle of Palms, a barrier island outside of Charleston, South Carolina. My father would take my siblings and me out on his boat into the salt marshes in search of the enticing bivalves. He would take us to The Trawler in Mount Pleasant that had tables with holes in them to place buckets of oysters for each of us to devour."
