The difficulties of Life aren’t there to prevent you from doing things but to be overcome.
Saw Jobs (the movie) finally. This thing is a good source of inspiration for creatives. One of the monologue’s that I still remember is the one that Matthew Modine said (portraying John Sculley in the screencap above):
You can make a great product, but you have to convince people that what you’re selling is greater.
This doesn’t only deal with material products per se, but ourselves.

Duracell: Trust Your Power - NFL’s Derrick Coleman, Seattle Seahawks
Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spirit … and you’re keeping all of these in the air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or evenshattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for Balance in your life.

The Work of Zina Nicole Lahr
In August 2013 my friend Zina asked if I could shoot a video for her portfolio. She needed something that would showcase her work but also tell a little bit about her personality and her interests. We had two days to shoot and edit so we shot an interview and smashed something together to meet our deadline. On November 20, 2013 Zina passed away due to a hiking accident in Ouray, CO. After the funeral I revisited the footage and made this short as an attempt to capture her personality and creativity. I never planned to release it online but now I have a chance to share her and her creations with all of you! For all who are part of the Zina Lahr love bomb, this is for you!
