After almost 30 years as a Psychologist, I finally decided to take the advice that I had learned from Professor and Author Joseph Campbell and passed on to countless clients: FOLLOW YOUR BLISS. For me this included retiring early from a much-loved career and successful private practice I shared with my husband, David Usndek, in Chicago, moving to the Southwest and returning to my passion for the Ceramic Arts.
Tucson Happenings is devoted to our local artists and have been publishing monthly artist profiles for years. This page will list many artists that have profiled since we went digital in May of 2015.

Did you know that July 6th is International Kissing Day? Yup! It began with National Kissing Day in the United Kingdom and is now celebrated worldwide. Kissing can be inspired by many things... affection of course, but also in many cultures it is a sign of respect or friendship, or sometimes as a casual greeting, as in a peck on the cheek. Making this fun and interactive origami model can help you celebrate with your friends and loved ones on Kissing Day, or on any day of the year!

Every month I have to stop and think “what should I cover this month?” Sometimes I run into what people would call writer's block. This isn’t because I have nothing to write about, it’s because there is so much that needs to be said about this field, so many places I have investigated, so many things I have going on, etc; that I don’t know what to focus on.
