This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

being reset.

you're probably wondering where i've been.. so here's the obligatory dramatic short.  we were under contract to sell our house, went under contract to buy a house, went on vacation in September and had a good time in Greece and even better time in Turkey.  2 weeks after we returned.. we sold our house, the day after... i got laid off, we cancelled the contract on purchasing said new home.  in one day went from future plans known to jobless and technically homeless all at the same time.
sounds scary right? ok so i probably thought so myself at first too.  but really it has just changed things completely.  finally giving me that slim chance on doing something different.  something creative.  something i've ultimately wanted to do.  i mean srsly who really wants to test software and programs every day.  i mean it's work.  and work is good.  and my old job had the best coworkers evar.  so for those days after when i was sentimental and sad.. it was because of them.  also luckily for us we were able to lease back our house from the new owners.   and i went on pursuing photography/graphic design/ styling/cinematography over the last few months.  it may be going slowly, but steady enough for an upstart.

now it's march, i video'd my first wedding, then second, turned 30, got some new equipment, and moving into a new house.. things are looking better and brighter each day.   resets can be good man.
