This week I had the opportunity to share my personal journey of Creative Risk-Taking at the Tuesdays Together Memphis meet-up. I compared my Phone of the Spirit passion project to The Hero's Journey archetype that is used in literature and movies. The Memphis chapter of The Rising Tide society has been such a supportive way for me to meet other creatives in our community. I am the graphic design chair of this group and I have loved being able to connect with other artists in Memphis!
Thank you to everyone who came out to hear my story. I shared this presentation with over 70 Memphis creatives and many in attendance related to losing or struggling with a loved one in addiction. The more we talk about the opioid epidemic, the less of a stigma our society will have about addiction and recovery. So many people sent me encouraging messages and feedback after my talk. I appreciate y'all's support so much!
