It's been six months of writing challenges and this is the first month I've completed posting every day. And I'm happy about it. The tangibility of a project done.

I do love speaking at events. I've loved producing events. There is a satisfaction to creating an experience for people that keeps you buzzing for days. Crafting, curating, sculpting moments, feelings, environments.

Day 28, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Energy Vampires

Vampires suck. They suck the life out of their prey. They are beautiful and sexy, electric and all the things you could ever want. Energy vampires prey on those who give, the fixers, the I'll take care of it'ers. The do'ers. That quote "the devil doesn't come in a red cap and pointy horns, he comes as everything you ever wished for".

Day 27, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Open the Kimono

When someone decides to be naked in front of you. And I'm not necessarily talking about clothing. But about their essence. Who they are. At the core. What makes them tick. What they are passionate about. It's rare. People put up a lot of walls. Or simply have a lot of pain and hurt between.

Day 24, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - What I learned from Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, Los Angeles yesterday

What I learned from Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, Los Angeles yesterday. I am strong. I own my body. Every day. It's good to sweat, to bleed. I can let my shit go. Into the hit. I like, no I NEED the physical, the punch, the push, the grab. Give it over, give it up. Push it forward. Push through. Next, and again, again, again.

Day 23, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Moonshadow Malibu

Moonshadow Malibu. New favorite haunt in Los Angeles. Swanky, old school lounge hanging over the sea. The perfect place to celebrate a good day with a friend. Even if he won't let you follow him on Instagram. His dog Oliver's more interesting anyway.
