New Era

Allow Myself to reintroduce Myself.

I'm Trey Hodges; I started this blog about 4 years ago.

That seems like so long ago, but through the process of making art; I learned much and much has happend. Since my start of the Blog, I feel more positive about my art and my direction. Now, I have a better feel for where I would like to take my art and myself.

I'm starting a business, or rather I'm in the process of starting a business.
It is something that I have been thinking about since my early college days. But in my youthful mind I thought I would start one "someday". Ah yes the magical "someday".

But a few years after graduating college the idea would not leave my mind, and I thought why not start now. Why wait for the "someday" and start today. So I am. On the blog I might ramble on about the business of starting my own.

I would like to live abroad, if only for a short time. So in 2014 I'm applying for a Visa and will go to Europe. Paris to be exact. Sounds crazy doesn't it. Yeah it does to me too. But again, I thought the worst the French govenment, the US government, or whichever government; they can say is No. The reply "No" really would not be so bad. It would mean nothing in my life would change to much.

However, if they say "Yes", now that would be the butterfles in the stomach "wow" moment. Because then every thing could change. So why not give it a try and see what happens I would rather a govenment deny me than I deny myself.

On to the next Era

Years after graduation I am in transition.

My next Era, a span of about another 4 year( I'm calling the next era 8-bit)
