As the saying goes: “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but often times better than a master of one.” I like to experiment in many creative forms, professionally as a software engineer and for fun I have experimented with Photography, Pottery, Writing (prose and poetry). My current big experiment is Printmaking. I am the owner of D.M. Penny Press, a printmaking studio in Manchester NH. The studio has been in operation since 2015 and I do offer limited memberships for experienced prinkmakers looking for access to a press and other equipment. If interested see the membership info on the web page.
I've journeyed far this year, To a place I never wanted to see. I've faced mountains, crags and cliffs, Each step uncertain. I've stumbled often, Falling to my knees. I have pounded my fists in anger, And cried out in the night. All along praying, hoping the Path I follow is right. Family, friends, those I hold dear, Have helped me stay the course. To see what's important, to see the truth, To find the source. Life carries on, here I stand at the Edge of the wilderness. Thankful for all that I have learned, and Despite the hardships, feeling blessed. The next steps are hard, for I know I must go on. To find what I will become, to set my mind free. This journey into the wilderness, This journey for self discovery. Though I walk alone, and sometimes Feel that I am in hell. I know I am not, my family, my friends, and God all want me to be well. Out there in the darkness lies the path I Have not found. Trusting that it is there From someone not seen. The path I must follow has been designed for me. By chance? Destiny? Or something in between. Only with faith, compassion, courage, and Understanding can I see. God's light shines all around me, the path appears I am the light because God is in me. As I become aware, and look beyond my light I finally see those other lights, Who have come before me. My new life is just beginning, my light will Shine bright, for all who want to see. Maybe I can be a guide, for those who want To be. David Gray
