While out at the show today, a couple suggested that I watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because movie was about a writer. Netflix claimed that it had a 55% chance that I'd like it. This is what happens when your children have ruled your queue for years. I did like the … Continue reading Charcoal drawings
Today , we watched Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. All I kept thinking was, "Yep, this is the blog post I wrote earlier in the week." I don't know. I think someone spent too much time at Einstein Bros. Bagels. Maybe for overworked people with no knowledge of alternate realities, then it could have deep … Continue reading Another alternate reality
That is the question I deal with today. In trying to work on the trilogy yesterday, I started feeling like something was going wrong, like maybe scenes were out of order.

I did something very unusual for me last week: I took a vacation. A true vacation. Normally when I take time off of my day job, it's to go do a show for my writing/art, or to finish up a project I've been working on, or on occasion to do something fun with my family … Continue reading Progress – August 6, 2018

Recently, I had picked up a bunch of … Continue reading When Passion Shows Through
