Making a Ring with Oleg
~ creating a custom silver ring with master artisan Oleg Mozjoukhine
In 2015 I was inspired to create a ring that had a very personal spiritual meaning to me—a ring that would represent my vows of love with the indwelling God. During my daily meditation practice, over a period of many months, I decided that I wanted to create a sterling silver ring with a design of silver irises on a dark green background. more

Peter and the Christmas Russian Hat
I got an unexpected gift of money at Christmas, so I went online and found a hat that I had been looking for, for quite a while.

It's a Russian Ushanka hat, and it's one of the warmest hats in the world. It's made in Canada, from Mouton Sheepskin, which is the warmest fur for wet snow climates like Portland. (It's incredibly soft.) Beaver is the warmest for dry cold, according to the company. more

The Warmest Coat in the World: The Snow Mantra by Canada Goose The Warmest Coat in the World:
The Snow Mantra by Canada Goose
On that winter night, I went with my lovely bride, Queen Kimmy Sophia, to One Longfellow Square, in Portland, Maine, to listen to some bluegrass music played by Erica Brown and her band (no relation). After that fine event, we walked back to our car, two blocks away. By the time we reached the parking lot, I was in "Full Ague Mode." (Ague is "shivering and shaking chills.") Like FULL AGUE MODE. I couldn't even drive. more
