There’s a piano in my house! I’m a little unfamiliar with the stuff, but I think this might be what “happy” feels like! And you best BELIEVE I used Instagram’s Kelvin filter for this!

My colleague/friend Josh drew this doodle, which now adorns my name-plate at the office. A couple people doodled things for me, but Josh is the one who correctly identified my favorite Doctor, so his stays. :)
