Our beautiful black Lab Golden Retriever cross KC, who passed away July 19, 2014. Rest easy old girl <3
'When I met her I think my first line was, 'Hey I'm Darren, I'm Scottish, we're the best lovers in the world!”. And then she laughed and in the first five minutes we were planning our wedding at a Scottish castle and I was going to skydive into the castle and she said, “That’s going to be interesting when you’re wearing your kilt!”

Today I had a long talk with one of my followers, they shared with me their story, and I shared mine with them. When everything was said, I felt it was time to pass on a piece of advice I’d been given years before.
Anyone who claims to be your “friend” but doesn’t celebrate your victories, and never misses your failures, is NOT your “friend.”
This goes for all walks of life, but it echoes louder for artists, writers, and musicians. If you have someone who claims to be your “friend” but has done nothing but hinder you, your passion, and your craft— then you have my permission to walk away.
There’s a saying in Mexico…
"I would rather be alone than in bad company."
Stay strong, dear followers. You don’t ‘owe’ anyone your friendship. It doesn’t matter if you have known each other your whole life, or if you just met. You have a limited time on this planet, don’t waste it surrounded by people who hinder your art.
