Working at Night

Some of my favorite moments in my life are when I discover things about myself through passive pondering.  For example, I discovered one night that I like watching "feel good" movies late at night - because when I do, usually I'm the only roommate who lasts through them.  So when they're done, I can ponder the message of the movie without being disrupted.

Through reflection, I've identified another thing I like to do:  work at night.

The Human Mind

"...the things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity—thou must commune with God." 
- Joseph Smith Jr.
The development and capacity of the human mind has been on my mind (no pun) as of late. It seems the process of deepening thought, sharpening focus and extending one's attention span involves more than simply the brain.

Web Design: Weebly vs WordPress

Since creating the acoustic duo, Wood, I've had to learn all sorts of web design tomfoolery.


The website for the band was initially created using a tool called "Weebly Drag and Drop Editor".  It makes for incredibly easy building of pages - but it doesn't allow for much customization.  For instance, you'll need to use one of their pre-designed templates, color schemes, etc.  And while there are a whole lot of templates, it would sure be nice to be able to change the background color easily or adjust the height of a banner. is currently built using Weebly.
