I’ve had the fantastic opportunity to spend the last week in Des Moines and my friend James got this incredible photo last night that nicely capped off the week.

At dinner last night there was this amazing shine coming from downtown. A bunch of people that were sitting outside got up and started taking pictures of the sight. It was pretty amazing to watch even though I was giving James a hard time.

I’ve had more time to be creative this week solving problems, working on product, being challenged by friends, and creating a lot more than I’m consuming.

There’s an undeniable undercurrent of creative freedom in Des Moines and everyone seems to accept that life is all one big experiment.  I don’t know how it happened or where it comes from but I know I love it.

There’s no place like it.

Thanks Des Moines, you’re pretty great.
