Our Focus - Drawing from our lives and the specific sense of humor and sadness we feel in the world - the epically small elements of our life - (dome and conz on story and what we bring to the table)
Scott Minerd shared with Dome and I this quote that resonated with our life mission, what our parents have taught us, to persevere, to be determined, to never give up.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”.
Calvin Coolidge (30th president of the US)

i heard a woman at Elephant Coffee in Atwater - 6.1.18
“Lesbians are pretty good whistlers.
I’m a lesbian, I’m a good whistler.
I’m a lesbian too and i can whistle.” (and i sat thinking, damn, I’m a great whistler, wonder if I’m a lesbian and don’t know it).
