Could This Change Your Life?

Two of the greatest professional comfort foods

Film crew last night at Epcot. Make your own movie if you want.


Stop the madness of waiting to be picked.

Pick yourself.

Oh wait, you don’t know how to do that.


Because no one does until they figure it out. And they may never figure it out.


Because excuses and regrets make comforting conversation starters – conversations we repeatedly have with ourselves. Like a pair of well worn jeans. Comfort.

Life Transition (Dec 2014)

We know this and respond appropriately

(photo: iPhone screen shot… the magic (aka passion) is drained out of us with, “Quit acting like a child… grown up, etc”)

Funny isn’t it, the way we dream of change and yet do the same routine in spite of knowing better?

Can you picture the fictional Ostrich sticking it’s head in the sand in order to hide?

This is (literally) sickening sad to any soul who views their job as art. Who treats creating magic as a privilege.

How can anyone desire this and not take action to not schlug through their day, day after day?

The triumph is in walking away. Walking away from mediocrity and average.

But how does one decide to simply walk away. Easy. Take the risk.

Taking risks is risky.

So is playing it safe.

We know this.

And do nothing.

So What?

Can you see yourself smiling when no one else can see you smiling?

Can you see yourself smiling when no one else can see you smiling? Like, maybe, right now?

Sunday morning 8:18am, December 30, 2012. It’s cold outside in most of America. Cold.

Sitting at a second floor, east-facing, work-from-home-desk, smiling. Bright. Man it’s bright.

We often make year-end personal inventory lists of our accomplishments and our regrets on a day like today.

This early, on holiday, we’re not in the mood for making lists.

Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not.
