    • Where to begin?

      Sometimes I wish that this story in my head, had appeared to someone else; someone who could do it justice. Someone who could make something great.

      But it's mine.

      It's my story to tell.

      My burden to bear. It is so much of how I identify myself; but no one even knows it. I don't know how to begin. Still. Lost in it. I have a pile of notebooks, filled with rough scenes, and ideas for so many characters, and arcs, and events; but I still can't start it. I don't know how.


      I look back, and it's been 10 years since I first wrote the name.

      TEN years.

      And 15 years since the dream first grabbed me; I was but a wee lad, running around the schoolyard fighting imaginary villains, to childish plots I don't even remember. But the dream held. I carried it with me.

      I just don't know how to get it out. Life gets in the way, I suppose. But it's me more than anything.

      I've wasted so much time. And I'm still scared I'll never get it out of my mind. I don't want to put it off anymore. But I've said that before.


      Right now, I'm writing this, just to write. To get the words flowing again. I've let them settle for too long. I'm ready for my life to start now.

      But that's up to me, also.

      And I don't know where to begin.

    • Here's to Monty.

      Whether I'm watching videos, or just keeping up with the posts from anyone on my friends list; my watch list; and the occasional foray into the "Everyone" tab, I always seem to be on the RT site. I rarely post, however, unless the compulsion strikes.

      Needless to say, I feel compelled.

      I met him twice at NYCC 2014.
      keyatzin5438b2a27193c.jpg
      Typically at these events, I forgo waiting on line to meet anyone. I don't really care for autographs or pictures with celebrities, and I just opt to wander the floor. So getting on line, and taking this picture was the result of a very out-of-character decision for me. But, I decided, I just wanted to shake their hands and say "Hey, I like you guys, and what you do."

      But it was the second interaction, that I really enjoyed.
      It was Sunday afternoon, the last day of NYCC, and most booths were already packing up. Now, like I said, I spend most of the convention just walking the floor, when who should I suddenly find walking beside me? None other than the Monty Oum, accompanying Sheena.
      I quickly decided I didn't want to disturb them, or impede their progress, but I did want to say "Hey, what's up, Monty?" And I did. He responded in turn, with his famously laid back demeanor, and you could instantly see how cool he was.
      It was a quick conversation, and I don't remember everything that was said. He did mention they were headed back to the booth, but then we passed these displays, many now emptied, with really cool collectible figures in them, and he just lit up.
      Understand, that he had been "on" for the fans, signing and posing, doing a panel, for hours on end, over the past 4 days; I knew he was exhausted, though he didn't show it, but here he was genuinely excited.

      And I just stepped back, smiled, and quietly faded back into the crowd, leaving him to enjoy his momentary diversion.
      It was an honor to meet him, but it was a privilege to see that gleam of wonderment.
      __ __

      Words fail to capture Monty's intangible greatness (by definition).
      But I don't care, I'm writing it anyway. He's worth that effort, at least.
      And effort is a worthy thing.

      His Talent, was Jaw-dropping.
      His passion, was inspiring.
      His determination, was relentless.
      His humility, was humbling.
      His joy, was contagious.
      His presence, was legendary.
      And His memory, will never fade.


      Find your Passion.
      Chase your Dreams.
      And never let life get in the way of living.

      There are too many things to bog us down.
      Persevere.

      Hey man. Saw you're in Brooklyn. If you search RT NY community you'll find the community group for our area. We also have an event coming up.

      Name is Chris, btw. smiley1.gif

        Apparently they were previously. But, we've been going strong for going on 6 months now and no brakes in the near future. smiley13.gif
