Every weekday morning I head off to one of my favorite coffee shops: the Uptown Garrison. I look forward to my espresso and I savor every drop. On my way this morning, I was listening to a podcast, “Before Breakfast” by Laura Vanderkam when I nearly stepped on this beautiful creature. He was just crossing the sidewalk at his own gradual yet determined pace. Naturally I had to film him. As I was doing so I had noticed how fiercely determined he was to get to the other side of the sidewalk. I thought of myself. It has been taking much longer then I had anticipated it would have taken to build the Phoenix. But I am determined to get to the other side. Minute by Minute I will finish this piece.
