i'd like to share with you all this incredibly thoughtful and personal gift my talented friend elizabeth made for me using a beautiful piece of reclaimed slate. she has made numerous carvings as gifts for friends and even contributed a few pieces to an exhibit called local histories: the ground we walk on, which features over 50 american artists. the exhibit is based on artist alfredo jaar's statement that "place cannot be global."

a very sweet gift, is it not? makes me feel completely inadequate for all the times i have hurriedly purchased a gift at the last minute.
