flashforward and arrowLove

Whenever I doodle I draw arrows. Usually the same type, an ever-branching system of four-stroke arrows that continue to spiral out. I’ve never really thought much about it, just seeing it as an ever-present need for direction and expansion.

Years ago, when I started seeing the arrows for flashForward I was instantly intrigued, thinking it was my dream environ for TWO of my great passions—Flash and arrows.

The first day of this event has been nothing short of inspirational. From magnificent, awe-inspiring Hodgin visualizations to Miha Pogacnik's metaphorical Bach brilliance and chaos perspectives in the lifespan of a creative mind.

Reminded of the passion in me, I was beginning to forget about.

Reminded of why I love what I do and how cool Flash was, is and will continue to be.

Inspired to a "future that is present" as Craig Swann so succinctly described—all the decisions for our future are decided as soon as we make them, start now and marry what you eventually want with what you do right now.

So far it's great. I feel this is exactly what I was looking for.

Stone Balance at Gem Show

I had the pleasure of being invited to balance stones at a Gem/Fossil Show last weekend. My father snapped a handful of pics that can be seen here, please check them out if you have a chance...

I'm progressively getting more and more addicted to this pastime, and it's excitement is growing. I was amazed at the response I received and the crowds I drew just balancing stones...

I will have more pics to post soon.
