    Working For The Harvest
    “Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted.” — David Bly The fruits of success are delicious, they fill the belly and soul with the satisfaction of a job well done. They are also remarkably addictive. Once tasted, you find yourself unable to resist their temptations, leading you argue whether or not it is worth the cost. We like the idea of success, but are often unwilling to make the sacrifices necessary to earn it. So instead of hard work, we

    3 Things Not To Repeat in 2019
    2019 has arrived in all its glory, sharing with us a new set of 365 opportunities to do something new, incredible, and even flawed. We have no guarantee that we will succeed in our day to day activities, we only know that we have the chance. With another day of breath, we have another moment to see if we have the courage and capacity to make our wishes reality.

    The Virtues of Nothing | Christopher Robin (2018)
    Caution, this article may contain spoilers for Christopher Robin, proceed at your own risk. Three of my sisters were kind enough to take me to see Christopher Robin (2018) as a late birthday gift, it was a delightful film treated with the respect the material deserved. As a child my mother read to me the original Winnie the Pooh books, growing up I watched the films and television programs (among my favorite will always be a Very Merry Pooh Year). My family says I am very much like Rabbit,

    Mugshots: Winterset
    This is the first in a series of stories I'm collecting about my mugs and how I got them, we hope you enjoy the first installment.     One of the first mugs to start my collection is a John Wayne mug (unsurprisingly), that I purchased from the John Wayne birthplace museum in Winterset Iowa. On one side of the mug are the handsome features of John Wayne, on the other is an apt quote from his film “McLintock!” (1963), “Don’t say it’s a fine morning or I’ll shoot ya.” The context of the quote is
