Spending hours on the road can be the best therapeutic medium. The go. It’s best to not make this time an errand, I feel anyway, it’s best to let the drive and the spinning wheels have a life of their own. I do prefer the solitude of these trips. No ones agenda but mine. Lonely roads, weird scenes, time for reflection, almost like being invisible. I always take something with me and leave something behind. So should you.

Big thanks to @cmemixit for helping edit my portfolio for the agency.
It’s a lot of hard work. Long hours. Sacrifices both personally and financially. I take pride in my craft and thankfully I have a crew of peers that not only has my back because they are moving in the same direction , but they understand that this is our livelihood, how we eat, how we choose to create. I know it will take time and even more dedication. Not a lot of people appreciate that. As a result of this group of fellow visionaries I know the value of my worth. Thank you to my friends who inspire me to keep moving forward.
