The Woes of Projecting

[caption id="attachment_504" align="aligncenter" width="590"] Stage 3: Intimidated. Jon Glassberg photo[/caption] There are more or less six stages to projecting: One: Psyched. I have a new project.

The Battle Rages

I've spent the past few weekends battling a project at one of my top three favorite areas in the world - Mill Creek, Utah. The battle continues, and so far the route is winning.
