Tough challenge and uncertainty, green light. We are all going to hit that suck zone sooner than later. What we decide … Continue reading All I See Are Green Lights
My last post was 2/7/2018 over almost two weeks ago. I went ghost with posting and writing. Sometimes with your craft and work, its the best thing you can do. What I have been up to during that time? Several things actually. Studying subject matter and ingesting just about everything I can get my … Continue reading Time Will Tell
