Hey all -

I know it’s been a while, so I wanted to drop in and say hello. Though I sometimes go off to work on other things in my life, ThoughtPose will always be here for me, and for you.

As a status update, things are going pretty well right now:

  • Back to working full-time so I can save faster for a house. I wasn’t sure how’d I’d feel about “going back in” after sleeping until noon freelancing for so long, but I actually like the gig thus far and am feeling more focused.

  • Been living with the girlfriend for a few months now. Another big change that’s going better than expected.

  • Creatively, I’ve been bouncing between a few things. Juggling multiple projects at once means that they all move slow. With that said, I’ve been consistent in my efforts, so I don’t mind the pace one bit. I'm learning to appreciate the routine of it all - I feel organized, and I'm confident that all of these projects will get done (eventually).

Speaking of projects, while there are a couple that aren’t ready to be talked about, I’d like to share one - in progress.

My little Instagram page has been coming together quite well. It’s gotten me into the habit of writing (and sharing) my thoughts almost every single day, which I’ve been doing since my first post on November 6, 2017.

So, I've decided to put a little collection of these thoughts together in the form of a poetry book. When published, it'll consist of mostly poems, some quotes, some random tidbits (should equal about 100 pieces when it's all said and done). It’s a collection meant to, in my own way, tell the story of this most recent journey - a journey that brought writing back into my life after a long period of silence.

As I mentioned, this is a work-in-progress. I have the content, I just need to organize it all and then self-publish both digitally and for hard copy. Luckily for me, I found this awesome tool called Airtable that's helping me with the organization part.

In addition to letting me get organized, Airtable also enables me to show you how it's all coming together in real-time (see below). So, as I make changes through Airtable, they will automatically appear here.

You can also interact with it if you'd like. Expand any of the entries to read them in their enitrety. You can also filter and/or sort these pieces by theme, style, date written, etc.

Feel free to explore, and to check in from time to time to see what’s been added. It'll move slow, but it'll get done (eventually).

Thanks for reading - more soon.
