The Great Escape

I am addicted to the beauty and charisma of this Tropicana ad and find myself watching it a few times a day to soak up it’s  high.  It is a simple concept lush with love and creativity. Set in the Arctic and laced with Patrick Watson vocals and piano,  I felt a rush of warmfuzzies when the dark was blanketed by light.  Anyway, watch and feel as I peace out with a few words from Patrick to sum it all up: “Don’t be afraid, just eat up all the gray, and it will fade away.”

I’m still here.  I am in a good place right now and I will snail mail my thoughts on the new scenery.  Right now I’m just busy exploring. If you haven’t noticed my absent then you never were mine to begin with.
