To My Daughter
As parents, we love all of our kids the same amount. But we don’t love all of our kids the same. They’re each individuals and have different needs- which brings a new light to parenting, with each addition to our family. They have unique personalities, which brings out new sides of us, and teaches us new ways to love.
Narcolepsy and REM
I have always had a weird connection with people I am close with through dreams. Sometimes they're people in my life, sometimes they're people who I have not seen in decades, once or twice it has been the deceased. They're always dreams where the person is reaching out to me for help, and in some instances, it has been the actual event that was happening at the exact moment I was having the dream.
The Music in You
The idea for "The Music in You" came to me while I was driving around and listening to a "90's One-Hit Wonders" playlist. I thought to myself, "You know what would be a good movie? Just a group of unrelated stories lines, on a road trip, each car listening to one of these songs, then at the end- it turns out, they were all headed to the same place.
The Music in You
All of the cars were pulling in at the same time. A parade of people looking around- many were smiling, some looked back, and almost didn't recognize where they were. A handful felt lost- almost like they didn't feel like they should be there. A feeling they've always associated with this place.
Music in You
They had flown out to California together. This road trip had been planned for years- any road trip. They just wanted to enjoy the open road and couldn't believe it had taken this long to do it. They planned on a week-long trip back to Chicago; arriving back home just in time for the event.
