Gah! is it the weekend already? Wow how time flies! Its been one heck of a week full of ups and downs and emotions and laughter and intensity and oh so much water…..ya know because its been so hot. Anyway its finally the weekend and time for me to purge my mind of all the clutter of the week and unwind in the desert with friends and children and pretty dresses and lots of silly photos.
i don’t know about y’all but i am a highly emotional person. i put all of my love into Indie Ogden and taking care of my community and helping everyone i can. I am highly invested in the greater good and i want Ogden to succeed, i want my friends to succeed, i want local businesses to succeed and i want nothing, nothing in return. I do this because i love this town, i do this because i finally feel like this is my home and i do this because you all have given me so much love and hope and generosity. I am by no means perfect and everyday i strive to better myself. It’s a life long process we all must go through.
I want you to all know that if i have been neglecting you let me know, i am here for you and together we will all succeed. Let us support each other whole heatedly with out any hidden agendas. Lets us support each other for the sake of community and not to “win” at anything. We all have the potential for greatness and there is enough of Ogden to go around for us all to have the chance to express ourselves. I hope that i have inspired some of you and i am constantly inspired by you.
I am so grateful for all of the opportunities i have been given because of indie Ogden, so many things i have always dreamed of doing have come true. if i have not said THANK YOU enough i am sorry so , THANK YOU! Without all of the amazing people that are here in Ogden, none of this would be possible.
There are so many rad musicians, artists, business owners, writers, actors, film makers, visionaries, community advocates … i would love if you would share your links to your local Ogden projects so we can all network and discover and make new friends.
