Holiday Reflection: Good People

WHEW...the day is at it's end. I am exhausted. My daughter had a blast. Everyone was sooo kind and my family is truly blessed to be surrounded by such good people.

Here we are at the end of 2008 and I think/reflect about the year gone by and what I have experienced and learned. I feel lucky to have had the year I had, and a lot of that has to do with good people. With the love and support of my wife and daughter, they provide for me the drive and enthusiasm to do what I do every day. I'm blessed to have my "mothers", my mom, step-mom, and mother - in -law, for without them, I would struggle to get anything done. My Free Lunch partners, Steven and Steve, who push me to continue to better myself. My Free Lunch family, who share with me a common mission, hard work, professionalism and laughter through our experiences together. I'm blessed to have supporters that believe in me enough to give me the tools, experience, exposure and opportunities to succeed. Those that I mentor, individuals that share their lessons and experiences with me in exchange for the lessons I share with them. Blessed by all the children that I work with, whose energy, optimism and creativity are a true resource for me. And finally, the talented and kind people in my artist network groups, they are true role models and mentors to me and I am privileged to share experiences with. Don't think I forgot you if you are family, an Outlaw, a fan, my comic provider or my M&M supplier... For all of you, and I do mean all of you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You are the driving force behind everything I do.

Corporate Roast pic


These guys took it easy on their coworker, but I've done much worse. >:^D I've been doing these retirement roast pics for a while now. You know someone who is done? Shoot me an email and we can have a little fun with them!







Wonder where they worked?
