Musings [160 words]

Once again, this is yet another project not living up to its full potential. It’s been a fear of mine since the beginning, and I feel it’s the story with most of my projects. I’m incredibly frustrated by my inability to get out of town to see the fall colors. Between Plaidurday, having a shop to run, and putting on a film festival, I may never enjoy the fall colors again.

And lately I’ve been thinking lots about money. Can you imagine how amazing this project could be if someone had money to do it? The amazing views and locations, gosh. I imagine what any of my projects could be like if they were able to be infused with money. So many people have marveled at Plaidurday lately, people who have the funds and means to make something really incredible happen. What’s better… endless drive without a dime, or endless money without any drive? It’d be cool to experience both.


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
