Pro-Imagination

Last night I watched again a film that is quickly becoming one of my favorite movies. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, starring Ben Stiller. There’s a skateboarding scene that is just awesome and inspiring to watch. I don’t know why, but it causes my soul to soar in a way that I can’t quite […]

Designing a City

I just got back from New York City. I was refueled and re-inspired creatively upon returning home. There’s no place like NYC on earth. True, you could make a case for the insanity of the place – the noise, the chaos, the stress, and the frenetic pace. But you can’t beat the culture, arts, food, […]

Clint Eastwood, the Artist.

The name evokes a lot of things. Legend. Actor. Director. Spaghetti Westerns. Dirty Harry. “Make my day.” That’s because Clint Eastwood is a lot of things. Eastwood is my favorite director. I love his movies. If Unforgiven is on, I will watch it every time. Like a tractor beam, I’m captivated. He has been directing […]
