It's still early days in the run up to Gateway 2018, but it's not too early to get excited!!! To that end, the effigy team would like to present you with periodic thoughts throughout the next months. Let's get started!
When I was young, I started keeping all my dreams in a little backpack. I wore it everywhere. Its weight kept me focused on where I was going and who I was going to be.
But now I’m an adult. I’m not a musician, a doctor (veterinary), a doctor (medical), a lawyer, or a doctor (philosophy). I am not among St. Louis’s 30 Under 30, and I am not thin.

I’m ready to bury my dreams that have died. Are you ready to bury yours? Bring them with you to Gateway Burn. ... See MoreSee Less
