Birthday Car Fund

On December 4th I wrecked my beloved car. Got an estimate in Abilene and thought it would be returned to me whole. But once the Tesla-approved body shop got to looking, that estimate doubleed. My Model S was a 2014 with 145,000+ miles on it, which means the value wasn’t going to cover repairs needed….

What Is A Creative Act?

If I’ve set a goal of creating something every day, how will I know when I succeed? We create things all the time. Is a Facebook post saying I’m back in Texas enough? A photo of the new Cisco Supercharger? No, I don’t think so. Those things are creative, but they aren’t sufficient to accomplish…

Photos of New Friends
