A year among the Wildflowers

It seems like just the other day that I was living amid cardboard boxes and tripping over rolls of packing tape. All in the efforts of trying to wrap our lives up to embark on this adventure as new, slightly nervous, first-time homeowners. And somehow, this week it’s been a whole year to that day. A home in the wildflowers. In its name and literally all around it. I was … Continue reading “A year among the Wildflowers”

Catching Up

Is it unprecedented to write a rundown of the year in August? I guess so. However, in a series of years where the word unprecedented has become a staple, it is probably poetic.

They do the … Continue reading “Some Good”

Among many experiences that made coming here worth it was a class I took last Fall. Titled ‘Branding through Motion Picture’ and taught by a three-time Emmy nominated … Continue reading “About a Story…”

Restart.

After publishing a whopping three posts in all of last year, I promised myself in January of 2017 that this year would be different. It had to. But all of the first month was spent draped in the weight of some critically incorrect decisions I had made formerly. I couldn’t keep my word. I have much to say about the previous year, There were highs, lows, really low lows and … Continue reading “Restart.”
