That’s where Dr. Catherine Weng, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Peak Ear, Nose and Throat Center in Broomfield, and…

Call it chance, and it ties in perfectly with Shively’s story. Her weavings have evolved to what she calls “records of chance,” designing patterns with primarily wool and cotton fiber pulp with…

Less is More

Yes, it is the dichotomy of my life. The SCI shows with the band are filled with great rewards, but sometimes great pressures. From setlist creations and special events, it can be a lot to shoulder.
