Inspiration comes from many places. For me I often find daily nuggets of wisdom from my kids. Where they get them is beyond me. Perhaps some divine combination of cartoons, conversations and observations of parental frustration. My daughter amuses me with her proclamation that “This is the life” whenever the opportunity for an ice cream appears or a lazy day on the hammock. One of my all time favorite quotes is courtesy of my son who aptly observed that worrying about things is a waste of time and why bother second guessing yourself… It is what it is. It’s not what it’s not.
These are images stolen in the process of finding story.
We are all part of the process; our footsteps marking time.

It has been a while since I have had a moment to sit and write about all the exciting changes that have occurred this past summer. The saying “one door closes and another opens” is an apt description of the recent past.
I have been fortunate to work closely with a lot of clients on various types of projects and proposals. Some go live and others to the wastebasket. Yet through it all the creative muscle is flexed, torn and rebuilt in a fashion of human endurance and adaptability. At the office we venture forth into the unknown and together sit engaged on the precipice of ingenuity. We fantasize over bold ideas and innovative creative in the assured resolve that our passion and creativity will bear fruit from which wine can be made and celebration experienced.
We have been fortunate this summer to engage with some amazing companies, from Microsoft to Google to Layar. As technology continues to progress faster than a melting froyo, we have kept our stride to stay informed and inspired. It is this pace of action and exploration that we infuse in every project we develop. I am fortunate to be surrounded by people who love what they do as much as I do.
