As I was brushing my teeth, I was thinking.

This time last year, I was in Apsley, Ontario in Canada, painstakingly chopping down a tree for firewood.

And this time next week, I'll be on my flight to the United States, for my convention filled year long (hopefully) venture.


I often wish I can pause time.
to allow me to fully soak up a moment.
"Wouldn't that be something" I think.

But with every second that passes, the moment we were just experiencing goes.
Just like that.

Makes you realize just how much one should treasure every moment aye.

anyway back to drawing

there was a show called 'black mirror' on TV over in England around a year ago, and one of the episodes centered around a device that recorded your entire life, and enabled you to visit and re-live any point in it. I'd love one of those.

But yeah you're right about the whole 'pausing' thing, sometimes there isnt enough time to stop and smell the roses.

I guess knowing that is enough to make us realize how we should really 'halt' at times to smell the roses.

Someone close to me always said, 'the most valuable thing in the world is time.' Once it passes, you can never get it back, so use it wisely.

I hear you, because you seem to be a very busy person, ( Dude you work a lot ) ..... but honestly, with all the amazing work you have done, it may be best to sometimes just stop, and see what you truly have accomplished, for it to really sink in. I know this may said cheesy, lol ... ( The slower the walk, the longer the journey )........... I know, I know........ I can't believe I said that.

life is like a one time roller coaster ride. You only get one. It has its ups and downs and extras such as the corckscrew move and water splashes. But through that all you just raise your hands in the air and enjoy it.
Also get a photo of your face at the end XD

There is only now. Past and future don't exist. Once I realized that, my life has been very different ever since.
I try to be as present as I can at all times, and I've been able to "soak the moments in" a lot better :)

Cheers man.
