My friend Gordon Uyehara sent me an exciting talisman; a tiny mask in the style of Athena that he sculpted from bronze-clay.
I’ve long admired the little mask (and Gordon) but never thought to hold it. How unexpected, how lovely. Thank you, Gordon! It’s currently being worn by the owl that overlooks my Working Spot. May the goddess of Wisdom, War, and skill in craft amplify my efforts.
