I remember being in school and looking forward to Mother Nature's wintry wrath and having a day (or more) off. These days, it's a different story. We adults don't always get that luxury, and as Creatives, we are pretty much like the Postal Service - "whether rain, or sleet, or snow..." But guess who is rebelling on this particular slushy day? Yup, this guy.
While it's not a complete day off, I do take solace in delaying my departure from the house, to get some internal work done; updates, emails, phone calls, things that don't require me to leave right away. Realizing that I've not communicated via blogging in some time, was the perfect excuse to stay in and a great way to keep creativity flowing. True, it's not as bad out as it was made to be, but I'll take a work-from-home day, as long as productivity prevails. I usually recognize that there is always something to be done, so total days off - whether snowy or not - are usually few and far in-between. Especially these days, in support of the new docuseries, TIME: The Kalief Browder Story.
Tomorrow will air the third (3rd) episode of TIME, and I normally like to contribute to spreading the word by using the social media platforms to remind and encourage people to tune in to SpikeTV or BET to catch the series. It's not an easy series to watch, but one that is very necessary for our communities and, essentially, the nation. We are in a new type of political climate where the hard truth is walking right in front of us and a lot of people, groups, values, and morals are on the line. I'm glad to know about and hear the conversations being had, and hope that they will manifest into even greater action than ever before taken. So, while gearing up to tune into tomorrow's episode of TIME: The Kalief Browder Story, at 10p EST on SpikeTV, here are a couple of videos with commentary from friends of mine who have been willing to talk about it. Until soon...
