Welcome to the madhouse

I have ptosis. Had an interesting experience recently…people constantly say “oh I didn’t notice your eye” and I never understood how that was possible. But as a photographer and video producer, I look at people’s faces for a living. I’ve realised that even as a professional-face-looker I didn’t notice when I had three subjects last…

You know that thing that happens when Facebook changes their algorithm or Instagram changes their logo (or, ya know…Britain votes ‘out’) and people lose their shit for a couple weeks and then, one day we get distracted and suddenly, the news just isn’t news anymore?

8 years ago, we went to a weekend conference with multiple churches involved. We rented out the entire resort so the only guests were those of us there for the event. Our son, Elijah, had an epiphany that weekend and asked us to baptize him. Word spread quickly throughout the camp that he would be baptized…
