    Girl About Town

    This month I have been all over the place… quite literally!  My art work is showing in four different venues in my hometown, and I couldn’t be more over the moon!  I can’t help but think back to the days when I first began showing my art.  Having one piece in a show was a big struggle for my self-esteem.  I was an artist, tight in the bud. Fresh out of college, I discovered a local artist co-op, KSpace.  I had taken a few art classes, was doing The Artist’s Way, and decided to follow the impulse of my Creative Spirit.  I took some photos of the little bit of…

    Breath of Life

    Now for the second half of the creative visualization I did last week that helped me turn my trajectory away from a crash course with Death and aim for a life well lived.  Let’s see, where was I?  Oh yes, Death had transformed into a wise elder-woman with the tell-tale signs of many years of joy reading all over her face.  She walked away to join The Fates, leaving me with the woman who had come when I let out a call for help…..this sounds like a metaphysical soap opera.

    My Creative Growth

    When I started running my own creative biz, I made a decision that the best way to guarantee that I could be the best I could be was to regularly practice self-care, schedule opportunities for continuing education, to play, and to live authentically….scars, beauty marks and all.  This is what I am doing for my creative growth. Coaching School Yep, I have headed back to school!  I LOVE learning.  A few years ago, I completed my Masters in Counseling, and now I am fine tuning my love of helping others by joining Brandi Graves at iCoach University for coach school. I will be wrapping up my coach training soon, until…

    Listening Inward

    I like to know where I stand.  I like things spelled out in black and white.  I like things tied up, nice and neat. But sometimes life gets messy. And we have to let go of what is safe…. And reach for what is right. If we are lucky, we will find the path that is made for us. But how do we know when it is time to leave the proven for the possible? We listen inward. What do you hear when you get quiet and go inward?
