 Because of a recent production I was in, I've not had the time to write and tweet about topics, issues, and curiosities that have been buzzing in my brain for the past two weeks.  I don't want this year to end without helping to amplify and share some of the great articles that I've had the good fortune to read.  So for your end-of-year reading pleasure, what I'll do is a link round-up, visual-style!  Here's some cool stuff to check out and think about (in no particular order):

Michael R Moore Gives Me... | #FotoFriday

Life. Beauty. Imagination. Creativity. Good vibrations. Head trips.

I think the work "random" has become overused these days to describe how circumstances come to be.  And with that said, it was pretty random how I was introduced to Mr. Moore. We clicked almost instantly though, and started working together, and we've got more planned for the near future.
