Awakening!

Sometimes we just cannot see.... we can't see an answer, we can't see a purpose, we can't see our dream, and we question and wonder why. So many times we over think and we don't realize we just have to get out-of-the-way. For two years, while trying to get Sacajawea produced in LA, I came [...]

Watch for the Wonders

A couple of years ago, the Sacajawea production team had the most amazing experience along the Oregon coast.

And, the Blind shall See…

If there's one thing I've learned on Sacajawea's illuminating and sometimes crazy path, it's that our greatest purpose may not be what we think.

Writing Cats

“Cats are dangerous companions for writers because catwatching is a near-perfect method of writing avoidance.” ~ Dan Greenburg “A catless writer is almost inconceivable.
