Goodbye from Wil Opio Oguta

My days will not start anymore with checking what is posted on the FIRE blog. A habit of years has to change :-(. I am honored that I have been a member of this creative group. And yes, sometimes it was difficult to find another idea to write about, as a lot has been handled during the years. Although I have to admit I knew what I wanted to talk about next year (grin).
I wish you all the best - fellow FIRE members and readers - and no doubt we will meet again, either in cyber space or in real life.
During January and February of this year Kelly and I talked about our e-book: Playing with Fire. We are working on our next book, which hopefully will be completed by the end of the year. If you want to be kept informed about our plans, please send an email to: info@what-if-textiles.com.
