It’s a big transition from working for someone else to working for yourself. Not everyone is cut out for it; it takes discipline and Mad Organizational Skillz. A freelancer doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for the muse to hit. We all know she’s a tricky wench, and she’ll take a hike when you have most need of her.

I know I’ve posted about  this video before, but it’s so appropriate to this day I have to post it again.

Letters Home from the Garden of Stone

This video and the comments left from people so affected by this war say it better than I ever could.


My father was a Marine. My uncle was in the Navy. My stepdad served time in the Army, as did my sister and my little brother. The love of my life spent two tours in Vietnam.

War affects each and every one of us, whether you know someone personally that has given of themselves in military service or not.

Today is a day to remember that, and to thank them. No matter what your politics are or your philosophy on world events, the truth is you are able to express these things thanks, in no small part, to the men and women who serve our country in this capacity.

Remember. Say thanks.

And get us the FUCK out of Iraq and Afghanistan, okay? Our people need to come home.
