The Year of Magical Dreaming

What I’ve Learned from 1,000 Daily Posts

In November 2013, I started this thing, this blog. I knew little where it was headed or how to garner traffic, I just wanted to write. After being away from writing for over a year (the time that it took to publish my book), I missed telling stories. Now, almost three years later, I’ve written nearly every damn day. My... Read More

No secret here that I’m obsessed with the Olympics. I can’t even imagine the heart, the drive, the discipline. It’s truly remarkable. More than four years of training, and, for many, only a few minutes of competition. Be prepared to witness some serious blood, sweat and tears. Use it! Fire is contagious. Soak it up;) I leave you with this:... Read More
