Let me know nothing. Let me look at the sky without thinking, let me feel the breeze and the warm sun on my skin without explanations, let me see the faces in a busy city street without judgment, let me laugh and cry without reason, let me take it all in without critical analysis, let me show my colors just because I can.  Let me be. Breathing, living, loving my life.  I am what I am.

Life is a lot like the process of making art. You cannot avoid the parts you dread. You cannot skip ahead. Forcing the pace is counterproductive. You may feel more effective if you’re doing a million things at the same time, but that’s only an illusion. Because you're avoiding the real deal by being too busy. You’re not actually getting ahead, you’re going in circles. And Life is about moving forward. Give the present moment all your attention in spite of the overwhelming urge to get up and run. If you approach this moment with curiosity and an open mind to discovery, then you will be moving forward with anticipation for what’s next. Because what's next is just another way of saying change. And change is the only thing in Life that is 100% irrefutably guaranteed.

Trying out something new on my SHINE blog - I'm using audio!

It's only taken me seven years to figure out exactly what kind of blog I'd like to have… and so the adventure begins.

advice from a drama queen

who are you gonna be today?
the you that’s really great at
creating lots of drama around you
or
the you that’s really great at
tickling your loved ones
because
speaking from experience
one of you
is sure to get a tension headache
before the day is done
so
tickling it is?

calisthenics for the soul

do 3 sets of, 5 reps:
“maybe I’m wrong”

then give yourself 2 hugs:
first, for being brave
and then again,
to show your evil twin some love

you’ll feel lighter
and quite possibly find yourself
smiling

Well, I've been going over my year so far, because sometimes I wonder about what the heck I'm doing. And although I do realize that Life is not about getting things done, but about enjoying the process, I still feel like a delinquent sloth for not being more productive sometimes.

I spent the first five months of this year putting together a manuscript and dummy for a picture book contest. I did get that done and learned a ton along the way. I needed a project to practice with watercolors again.
Then came the "Ask Alex" video (https://www.behance.net/gallery/53709467/Ask-Alex-Author-Interview-2017). And then the article about embracing duality with lots of pics I just put together (https://hubpages.com/health/Reflecting-Beauty-Your-Hidden-Superpower).

So, apart from my higgledy-piggledy way of trying to update all my internet sites this summer, I've managed to start a series of small sculptures to bring my little creepy caterpillar to life.

Stay tuned for more pics of Creepy coming soon...

Just some thoughts on how to annoy a zebra, reveal opposing facets of personality, activate your mirror power, and save the world. No biggie.
