Today is an auspicious date: February 2, 2020 or 02/02/2020 or "02022020".
This is referred to as a palindrome- a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward.
This auspicious date foretells many wonderful happenings. Miracles really. Certain reality manifested from imagination. The dates are signs or indications of great import in the near future. They are often dismissed as coincidence, but they are not. They are like the most wondrous and perfect moments in life, all by design.
And design is what this journal entry is about today. Moments (days) away from the launch of the new Robert Redd website, I must confess that this is only made possible by the hard work, tireless effort, sacrifice, compromise and loyalty by several people. Most notably and more recently by Mrs. Katie Wilson, Mr. Mikhail Arden, Mr. Ben King and Ms. Julia Yoon and several others. And as always, there have been the long time loyalists, such as Julianne Applegate and Cricket Browne (who was my original partner in RR). But beyond these fine people, there is Schuyler Williams, Eric Jones, Katherine Buxton and last but not least, Todd Campbell and Catherine Saunders - who worked tirelessly at the end of the original Robert Redd, LLC in 2013 to see it through. Without them, there would have been no massive mailing list or salvaged assets and the bits and pieces that make this Robert Redd relaunch all the more possible. You can see them briefly in our behind the scenes video on the site and our social media channels.
There are so many others that I simply can't name them all.
That said, there are certain people who have come in and out of my life that have inspired me and motived me...you may know who you are, you may not, but know this...I know who you are and I am grateful and I love you for that.
Lastly, I want to thank my family, friends and closest advisors/mentors for their excellent advice and unconditional love and support.
It is with immense gratitude that I write this entry and with even more love and awe that this day brings with it a new birth and new life of Robert Redd!
Thank you and God bless you and all who have been touched by RR and those who's touch has influenced RR. After all, family is what it is all about.
As always...Here's to you with you future adventures in mind...
