The truth is that I really wanted to revamp my friend Dean Burrell’s website. What he had worked ‘okay.’ There were a few issues though. It did not look good on mobile devices. It didn’t allow for the possibility of expansion— at least not easily.
I thought Higher Realms could still be simple and straight forward with a little extra graphics pizazz and color. In fact, we could keep some of feeling of the old site and brighten it up at the same time.
I don’t remember how or when Dean decided to let me refurbish his site and convert it to WordPress, but I am glad he did. The timing was right. Now Higher Realms Energy Therapies feels both energetic and healing — a natural extension of Deans’ good work.
