File this post under, Another Reason Why Dwayne McDuffie Was Better Than You.

So last week we all celebrated the life and legacy of one of the most gifted and progressive storytellers, ever to walk this earth, the late Dwayne McDuffie.

One Year Older, One Year Wiser

Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday this weekend. It means a lot that someone took time out of their lives to remind me that I actually matter.

This year I actually kept it low key. Rather than going to Vancouver or Montreal or any of the other cities in the greatest country in the world, I stayed home to reflect.

I got a sign of sorts when once again it snowed on my birthday. God was sending me a friendly reminder. Uh, long story.

I was productive however and got some work done while treating myself. I got dressed up and got my headshots updated.

Below are a few of them. All in all, it was a very good birthday. I look forward to 29, again. 😉
