Project.

When you start something new, whether by your own doing or because someone asked for your involvement, the project takes on a whole new meaning. Why? You’re attached to it. Your name essentially defines it. What you put out into the world comes back to either bless you, or haunt you. What you offer up […]

Peace and Plenty

If the sky wasn’t clear and the moon wasn’t shining brightly in the west, I’d probably tell you it’s raining.
