A passion for ideas and admiration for those who have them are constants. I think, write and design, hopefully always in that order. When someone says to me, “What were you thinking,” I take that as a compliment. The journey continues to mash into random peaks and valleys — or as the Smothers Brothers put it, “mountains and crevices.” Of course, that most likely makes my life like yours. But it’s mine. I’ll take it.
