everything in its right place.



The most invisible creators I know are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible—without brush, hammer, clay or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt—their medium is their being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see and don’t have to draw. They are the artists of being alive. - J. Stone

I recently spent a few hours meeting with my father-in-law, Steve Hardison. He's an amazing person and inspiring coach -- in fact, that quote above describes him perfectly. He spends every day creating, loving, serving others, and changing people's lives.

As I was leaving, he asked that I write this down and do it: Create. Everywhere you go.

And I will.
