Ever had someone believe in you when your faith was really low?I had something like that happen once upon a time, and I 5000% believe it saved my life.Way back at the beginning of my copywriting career, I was struggling.Actually “struggling” is an understatement.

what do you meme?

Ever notice how meme-able Nicolas Cage is? Yesterday I played hooky. I went and saw The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring the one and only Nic Cage.

To read part 3, click here. Something weird happened in the cosmos this year. Each adventure I originally planned with my siblings was canceled. One for a death in the family of the headlining band, and the other for COVID concerns. Dianne (sister) and I had planned on going to see a Broadway-style production of…
