My one word theme for 2020 is Experience

20 years of adulthood. 20 years as a graphic designer. 20 years. ~7,300 sun rises and sets. Time passes. It won’t wait for you.

Time feels no concern about whether you’re ready, willing, able, competent, foolish, or prepared.

Take every moment for what it is: Experience.

We each get to have our own unique experience. At times that feels empowering. Other times that feels lonely.

We learn from the experiences of others. We grow from believing in what we see, hear, touch, smell, taste.

Tough times make the happiest memories. Remember when that moment seemed important? Later, it didn’t matter at all. That split second that seemed insignificant changed everything.
