A Return?  Hmmmm….

I recently went out of town for a large gathering of PBS producers, content creators and local stations ( my friend the very talented Craig Bartlett was there) and I have returned with a new hope and optimism that there are institutions that are wonderful to work for, and that, if you look hard enough, you can find those people who share your values and goals in life, and if you work together you can both co-create contributions of joy.

I love this project I’m working on so much, and along with my film Fish Head, and spending time with my family, my dance card is filled with a night of blissful moves.

I hoard clippings from magazines, newspapers and such that strike my fancy. I was going through some today and found an article from 2000 about authors and creators working with PBS. There is a quote from William Joyce that I totally agree with when faced with the challenge of educational content coupled with quality entertainment. He said:

” The ironclad rule is to check your cynicism at the door. Being mean and funny is the easiest thing in the world”. 

It’s going to be a challenge, and that is why I like it.

It could also be that energy that surrounds you when it’s close to your birthday ( which I share the same birthday with my wife). Or just that everything in your life leads to this moment.

Sounding a little hippy dippy but this is genuinely how I feel.

    That’s great. I love Craig’s work. Hope to see this project you are working on. I’m assuming its educational and for PBS.

      I love Craig’s work too. Hey Arnold is a show I’ve revisited many times since I was a kid and it’s still just as funny, relatable and full of personality.

    Do you have any plans of making a new tv series? I’m a huge fan of work and Camp Lazlo’s my favorite show of all time.
