The Thang

While each AO has its own beauty, the Hill City AO is my favorite AO, hands down. It has the right mix of obstacles, hills, bridges and objects to let creativity flow. Like my Blue Period during the time frame of 1900 – 1904, Hill City brings out the best of my creativity. 

Game of Thrones is a very popular book series, as well as, TV Series. The Thang this morning was based off of the GoT series in a production called “Gains of Thrones”. Let’s get to it.

Back to House F3 (Home Base)


LittleFinger provided us with the word this morning. 

“Everyone dies sooner or later. Don’t worry about your death. Worry about your life. Take charge of your life, for as long as it lasts.”

You can’t change things that are out of your control, but you can change how you will act today. Make today the best it can be, be in the present and focus on those tasks.
