The Chaos gets kicked in the Factum

Tim Johnson called Beautiful Chaos his “favorite find of 2007.” Yes that Tim Johnson – yes this Beautiful Chaos.

It must be Lani.

As appreciative as I am, I am more humbled and convicted. I made a promise. I think I am dangerously close to breaking it. Tim, among others, have been incredibly supportive. I have been complacent.

I could sit here and tell you how busy I have been – but we are all busy.  I could tell you how wrapped up I have been in my Chaos – but we are all wrapped up.  I could ask your forgiviness – but knowing most of you like I do, you already have.  Thanks.

Or, I could live up to the lofty compliment bestowed upon us (Tim, the check is in the mail 😉 ).

Hmmm…stretch yourself to do things you didn’t think you could do and have a great time doing it…seems like I have heard that some place before.


  1. Don’t be too hard on yourself, April. You bring so much to other people so much of the time. We all have down times, and that’s OK. As a society, we don’t give ourselves the chance to have much slack.

    What amazes me is the response to my post. Just piggy-backing off of Phil and taking a few extra minutes to add some personal notes (effortless, really) has added a lot of joy to a lot of other bloggers. Lesson learned… take the extra time to do the small stuff for others… the dividends are always huge.

  2. Congrats, April- enough of that humble pie crap. Chaos is incredible and I’m very proud of your success. 🙂

  3. Timothy – I am not surprised at the response – I know how seeing that little blurb in parentheses made me feel.

    Your emails were awfully nice too! Thanks!

  4. Lani…you are supposed to say…

    “I’d like to thank the Academy, all the little people who look up to me, the guy that makes the perfect latte for me in the morning, the people that take care of my dry cleaning without losing it…”

    You are supposed to be my witty relief – geesh!

  5. Like I said, enough of that humble pie crap. 🙂 It’s all you, baby!
