I have been clicking a mouse for years.
Clicking and typing to make my fears
subside by paying my growing bills.
Learning to find perfection in strokes and fills
Gradients, vector, bitmap and pixel alignment.
To find excitement through a new assignment.
To learn new technology along the way.
To see the connections that always say
That all of this is part of one thing.
Be it a brush or a computer to make it bling.
These are just tools we use to tell our stories.
Just tools we use to help find our glory.
I have seen the dot com bubble come and go.
I have seen the birth of web 2.0.
I have been a little guy on the chain of command.
I have run a team fulfilling many client’s demands.
I have been an early adapter of new technology.
I get emails from companies asking me to beta test their strategy.
I have donated my energy to help many a venture.
I have seen start-ups come and go and felt the adventure.
I have connected the dots between paint and the digital.
I have continued to learn as it becomes less and less physical.
I have welcomed the coming revolution that has begun.
I see the digital as a possible savior for the far flung
Ideas that are right on the horizon to help humanity.
To break the chains of repeated history and discard our vanity.
To help break the cycle of human rights oppression.
To help find peace and freedom as life’s eternal lesson.
