Create our art for one purpose and one purpose only

To find a way to get people to think so differently about common sense that they feel like their life moving forward will never again be the same.

And ultimately, in reality, there is very little time to do what needs to be done while our customers are there with us.

But at the end of the day, everything we do to create our art is for one purpose, and one purpose only…

After all our searching, we arrive where we started (1st sentence) and recognize it for the first time.

So four full and complete years equals 7,300 blog posts (365 x 4 x 5= 7,300).

Truth be told, it’s closer to 7.8k.

This is an insignificant fact in everyone’s life except mine. I get that.

What is not insignificant in anyone’s life is the ability to persevere.

And perhaps, that’s the hidden gem in what might seem like a boring, redundant routine…
