I was so impressed with how Disney marketed the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie by bringing in Johnny Depp to be live inside of the actual Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

The Crossroads

September 3, 2015 — Leave a comment

I get in such a rush in my head.
It’s hard to slow down and stop.
What if I just pull-over, shut-off the car and sit there and listen?
I can hear the wind blow.
Cars and pickup trucks on Highway 9 drive by me.
I can see and hear cars going east and west on Highway 24.

I just got LTE signal after 24 hours of no service.
I don’t want to look at the notifications.
My brain seems to thrive on analog.

My Honda CRV is ready to go.
A fresh, cold water bottle is my companion.

There are no updates, tweets, posts.
I’m not even sure if such things exist, in this moment.
At the crossroads…

I’ll be coming back.

A few years ago I had a self-hosted pop culture blog that later became the inspiration for the creative marketing firm that my wife and I started. After some dreaming and reviewing my passion for blogging this type of content, I really wanted to get the old gang back together! I’m beyond excited to be partnering with Tim Engstrom again to bring this project back to life.  I’ve attached a rather recent cartoon he created for me below.

More about this in the weeks to come, but for now, checkout http://threethirtypm.tumblr.com !

My American Dream

dream

 

We each have our expectations of what the world should give us.

We have built this notion of an American dream, but our economy cannot sustain it. Two lay-offs since 2008 as proof for me.

Our hearts cannot bear the reality.

For me, it has been in the strange and awkward in-between spaces of the unknown meadows of life that God has provided me with the greatest amount of creativity. More, so much more, than I ever thought possible.

Fluid, it runs, from my head and heart, onto the page and my hands and feet move with it’s fuel.

I have forgotten about the American pipe-dream. And settled for the strange and awkward in-between spaces of the unknown meadows of life where God-inspired dreams form and become formulas.
