Good Morning, World

Savoring the quiet moments God hands to me in the morning before the daily chaos sets in. I’ve had an unbelievable first few days working for TracyLocke, but also wow. What a whirlwind. As most of you know, my family let my sweet Grandma go home to the Lord this week… and within 24 hours I dove right into a new job, with hardly a wink of sleep in between. So these hushed moments somehow become more precious, a pause for breath illuminated briefly between sleep and consciousness in a day yet undisturbed by activity.

And it’s here, before the noisy anxiety or clamoring stress of the day, that I am reminded: today I have a grateful heart, both for a loved one whose day begins in joy somewhere beyond this earth, and for work that fills my soul and nudges my creative spirit out a little further on the tightrope with every patient morning.



More to come on the new job soon!

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners…


To all my fellow beginner creatives, soak up these wise words from Ira Glass! Especially during creative finals week, they’re golden. “It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
