Every once in a while — often when we least expect it — we encounter someone more courageous, someone who choose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often , we are in awe. I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it. It is really about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their Life. In short, unlike me, they didn’t determine what was impossible before it was even possible.
Fail Safe – Debbie Millman's fantastic illustrated essay of timeless advice on courage and the creative life.
I. Love. This.

Today marks six months to the day that I moved back to our gorgeous city. A miserably rainy day in September is celebrated today with one of the most beautiful days we’ve seen in 2014.
I cannot imagine having done anything I have in past six months without y’all. Naturally, this is a love/thank you note to each of you. You helped draw out my inner strength and picked me up each time I thought I lost it. The most inspiring group of people I’d ever have the pleasure of meeting sits right here in Atlanta and, usually, right across the table from me.
Each meal, beer or pretzel (or Jameson shot…) we share means the world to me. We left a lot behind in 2013 and we’re cultivating such an incredible story and community here in 2014.
I can’t wait to have y’all with me every step of the way. More big news to come next Friday.
With all the love my heart holds,
White hot and passionate… #yearoftheotter
