Ah, the sixty second commercial. How I hate you. Selling myself may be my biggest weakness. Next to cheesecake. I am very fond of the art of self expression. And yet, ironically, I hate to express my innermost thoughts. When someone asks me for thoughts about myself, I just don't know what to say. Even here and now, my first thought is: _______________.  

I've spent most of my time trying to get by and catch up with life. This has brought me some great things. Mostly lessons learned through defeat. Now, I am following my passions. Above all I enjoy writing and sharing imagination. Let's see where it takes us.

    A movie review. Really? I started writing my daily blog, and it turned into a review for L.A. Story. A movie I haven't watched in over ten years. It's so clear in my mind and inspired me that much.
