๐Ÿ“ธ Found this photo in an old archive folder from a long gone MacBook Proโ€ฆ

It was taken right around when we moved to Durham, NC. My first piece of writing was just accepted to be published. That was also the first time my words provided any kind of payment.

I was just starting Conduit and work was coming in.

So much has changed since then. Durhamโ€™s not the same - that green wall has been replaced by a towering condo complex.

I’m certainly not the same either. There was a lot of joy, a lot of mistakes to learn from, a lot of anxiety and hope generated from all of the above… life basically.

This photo brought all of that back, as well as immense amounts gratitude.

๐Ÿ“ธ Another year, another Nevermore Film Festival here in Durham! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ’€โ˜ ๏ธ

Iโ€™ve been attending this horror film festival for well over a decade and itโ€™s been a pleasure supporting it over the years at the beautiful Carolina Theatre. 20 years! Just amazing!

๐Ÿ“ธ Got some thoroughly needed time away in the woods with this one. ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฒ

These little breaks away from Durham have been so, so good for us and our individual wellbeing.

Weโ€™ve been trying to make more space for times like these, and each time we do, it consistently gives back tenfold. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ซ

๐Ÿ“ธBack home after a LONG road trip...

… filled with hours of unexpected construction delays from my homeland (New England, NH & VT). Decompression and reflection necessitates much needed time with ๐Ÿต in front of the ๐Ÿ”ฅ back at the ๐Ÿ  …

My brother’s doggo, Ginger, is officially full grown. I am glad I can still hold her!

๐Ÿ“ธIts nice to have a reminder of how beautiful the winters can be up north.

Itโ€™s one thing where my memory has intentionally run short after moving south. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
