I’ve heard there are three ways you can create new brain cells. One is to learn something new. I forgot the other two…
For years I had seen a friend from middle school’s post on his company, Design Build Adventure, and I had always been intrigued.
Here is an example…
I signed up and packed my bags for the high desert of West Texas.
I can’t weld, but I was so excited to learn, and Captain Jack and his crew, Will and Parker, were excellent teachers.
The workshop consisted of consulting with two local artist, Nick and Maryam, who generously have donated part of their land to a playground. It’s called Eastside Playground and you must check it out when traveling through Marfa.
Nick and Maryam wanted a sign for the entrance and a table with benches for kids and parents to sit, play, and gather on.
We had two days to design, build, and make it happen.
The collaboration of the group was magical. Mystical. An experience I’ll never forget.
This is what we made.

We also made this welcoming sign.
Thank you Jack and your team, your amazing wife and kiddos, Terry and Maryam, and all who signed up for the class for making this an experience I’ll never forget!
