Things I've learned
There are lessons that come in handy all the time, no matter the project. These are some of my words to live and work by:
Dad taught me that the story is the most important thing.
Mom taught me never to take words for granted. A brilliant turn of phrase can work wonders.
My big brother taught me to pay attention. You never know what you'll see when you're really looking.
Mrs. Simpson taught me to go find out if I want to know something.
Grandma taught me to keep champagne in the fridge in case there's a reason to celebrate.
