Today marks the rebirth of a dream I'd lost sight of somewhere along the way.

Technically, today simply marks the day my storytelling tool of choice arrived:

This little giant is going to become my best friend in the coming weeks and months, because this stunning piece of technology is going to help me create again.

And with its arrival today, it's time.

It’s time to get back to what I love. It’s time to find great stories and tell them in a way that makes an audience feel something. It’s time to stop waiting for opportunity to find me, and instead to create it for myself.

Whether you know it or not, you're already part of this journey. Should you choose to be part of it monetarily, you'll add to the tool kit with things like lighting, travel cases, and eventually, an computer upgrade for editing all the stories I collect in the coming year.

But if you're here for moral support, or simply as a consumer of content, please know that your very presence here inspires me. Your encouragement gives me strength. Your doubt gives me determination. Your curiosity gives me drive.

Now, it's time I do something with all of that.

Well... as soon as the battery charges.
