The Heart of the Matter

Nobody ever reads the homepage, right? What am I doing?

But here’s a little bit of the backstory because without it, Reflections of Renaissance has no reason to exist. It’s just another weird frog in the deep, dark well of the internet … frog? Sorry. I mean blog.

My dream has been to help folks share their brilliant ideas with the world.

There are so many creative people out there who either don’t bother to advertise because it’s expensive, or feel their work isn’t good enough for the general public.

Right now, I just wanna say that’s simply not true.

Don’t be afraid to share. There are folks out there who are going to down-talk you. Ignore them. Just keep writing and drawing and making music … because if you do, someday you’ll look back and be like, ‘wow, I’ve come a long way!’ And that’s a great feeling.

Everybody starts out small. 8 pounds, on average, I think. Every minute you keep breathing, you’re either learning or sharing. So the more you learn; that is, the more you practice, the better you’ll get!

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.

Colossians 3:23 KJV

God gave you a gift. Whatever it is. Some of y’all don’t write or play music, but that’s its own little category. If you don’t, God gave you something else to work with. Get out there and use it. Stage-fright is totally a thing, but it can’t control you. The world wants to see what you’ve got!

Grand Finale

It’s that time, folks! I think most kids outgrow things. I’ve outgrown socks before (mostly when they get too dirty to keep wearing) and I outgrew a Star Wars phase … and lots of other phases … and lots of other things I can’t think of right now because I outgrew them too long ago.…

“Master” Bladesmith 3 (Time for Sparks!)

Alright! Here we go. I promised sparks, and I think just about everybody will like those little golden flying nuisances because they’re not the ones dealing with metal in their hair and teeth and noses. (Don’t call me an idiot. I already know. I’m going to buy a respirator as soon as I can XD.)…

“Master” Bladesmith 2 (Mockup)

I probably should have guessed. I mean … they’re a bunch of hardcore rough-and-tumble guys who like working with metal. So, when I was at work a few days ago and said I was planning on making a sword … I got a great response. “Why just make a prop? My brother has a forge.”…
