Sorry We're Open

Posted by Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 8 March 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Maybe it's just me; but I am always leary about shopping in a store that apologizes for being open....

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
