Once the general idea took shape in my head, I was off to the races with bits and pieces that could fit. I truly love this part of what I do—letting my imagination run wild with possibilities. Not quite as fond of the narrowing-it-down-to realistic-choices part or the make-all-the-tiny-details-work part, but it's all good.
Today's idea germinated from seeds planted at a summer recreation program when I was six years old. 42 years, but I remember parts of that day so clearly they could be playing on a movie screen directly in front of me.
Don't you just love how life knits itself together?
