You may have noticed that on our COVID-19 page I have announced today that we will be doing "Story Time" for adults. These will be simple little stories to help you laugh, make you think, and maybe sometimes make you cry.
This is the true purpose of Three Socks Media, LLC. In the past year, I've gotten away from my roots: telling a good story. Because of the lock down in my state (Michigan) all productions are stopped and I find myself with time to reflect and think about what matters, and I can say without hesitation what matters is a good story. That should be at the heart of every production, but oddly enough as one embarks on the business side of production, story seems to become less and less the issue.
I have truly missed getting a chance to just sit at my laptop and create, to be immersed in the actual act of telling a story. Making deals, managing egos, (and legal paperwork (oh, and did I mention managing egos?) becomes all-consuming, and it can be easy to forget the simple joy of the story that started it all.
Stay safe. I look forward to 2020 becoming a bigger adventure for us all.
