A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

Frank Lloyd Wright on What's My Line

Van Halen - Gettin' older. Playing rest homes. God bless them boys. Please be sure to tip the band.

Please excuse the last frame of this video. Could have done without this, but people will be people. I thought the rest of the video was worth the last second unpleasantries.

Surely Heaven waits for you. Don't you cry, no, more.

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say


Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, well
It surely means that I don't know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say


Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
The center lights around your vanity
But surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry (don't you cry no more)

How can you mend a broken heart?

Missing chapters

In my book of life, I'm facing the fact that several of what I hoped would be my favorite chapters in my life are now missing, having been hastily torn from the book. For the most part, your book of life writes itself. Or atleast that's kinda what I thought. But now I am frankly a bit lost. Lost what to think. Lost what to say. Alone most of the time, and listening to what God would have me see and hear and feel. Being alone is not simple, but being alone has been a time to think. As I've been thinking, I have realized that I am still a person who cares for people, mostly people who are hurting. I am still a person who makes mistakes. Still a person who loves animals. And even though these missing chapters make me feel sad, and very often despair, I can say with the utmost of gratefulness that even without these chapters that I was looking so forward to, I still know how my story will end. And so I thank God for His grace, and for his unconditional acceptance of me for who I am, as broken as that can look at times. He will not leave me, or forsake me.
