    I’ve been lucky in the sense that my girl hasn’t had any allergies to deal with.  However, I have known so many friends whose kids have;  and the bravery it takes to send them out into the world every single day hoping that someone won’t do some silly small thing …

    In terms of again checking to see if this week follows the pattern of easy-hard-easy-hard, etc., I would say that this was easier than last week for me personally since I was less worried about getting everyone done on time. There might be a pattern again, but reversed from the …

    The Road Home

    by

    October 19, 2018. This is a cemetery on the side of a rolling hill in Keene, a small town about 8 km off highway 7, which is the route I took from Toronto back home. It took me 8 hours, but it was better than driving on the 401. https://flic.kr/p/2cefHzX

    Semester is halfway done!  This was a busy, short week between making the show and all my other classes. I’m not often (if ever) creative in a group setting, so this was a new experience. It went really well, which was great. It could have gone horribly, which it didn’t. …

    I continue my attempts as minimalism. As another professor stressed yesterday, less is more. Whitespace is your friend. I think she mentioned it being soothing? Anyways, I wanted something simple and to the point, and I thought of the movie in four icons assignment. And then, as I was wondering …
