Four months and one day ago I left London, ON...tears gently rolling down my cheeks as I headed west out of town on Oxford St. past the Superstore on Hyde Park Rd.—with a smile on my face.
Sometimes we need a fresh start. Whether it is to our day, the week, or our life. Once in a while I feel the need to clear my head and start fresh. When this reset is at the macro level and requires more than a quick second or two to gather my thoughts...I shave my moustache.
To celebrate ONST's first year in space, we put together a limited edition run of an Invaders Handbook—Earth Issue—First Edition...AKA Scout Books...AKA Field Notes'ish like memo book. To help spread the word, Hannah designed a B-E-A-UTIFUL poster that started as paintings, then magically made it into a computer to become a digital work of art, that will be transformed back into a real world print soon...MAGIC!
It isn't out of the ordinary to start work at a new firm, and write a thank-you post to your last firm. But this goes beyond thank-you. I can truly say that I wouldn't be in the position I am in without rtraction...and that deserves more than a thank-you.
Today I am officially a citizen of Edmonton! I went to the Strathcona EPL branch and got myself a library card. I obviously took a book out as well, but getting a library card is like getting a citizen card to your city. I am now an Edmontonian.
