    On a Roll Art Shows

    The last several months I have had some art shows pop up locally.  One was part of Contemporary Art Month- Corpus Christi (in March), and the other, a series which features a local artist each month.  As it happens, they are also at two of my favorite local sipping spots. One, for tea; the other, coffee. Lotus Dreams Tea This is my second year to join with a local business for Contemporary Art Month – Corpus Christi, sponsored in part by K Space Contemporary.  (Last year’s show celebrated the year after cancer.) I have been partnering with the tea divas at Lotus Dreams Tea for workshops and creative happenings since the…

    Creativity Tribe: A Creative Living Studio

      Just two years ago this coming September, I breathed life into Creativity Tribe.  I stepped into the website with a lot of vision for the future and enough know-how to get me started on my journey.  I had never built a website before, but I was determined to create the sanctuary of my dreams. Over the last two years, my life took turns I never would have foreseen.  I took off on a cross-country solo journey to teach at a Live Laugh Love Retreat in Wisconsin and just a few months into arriving home discovered I had Uterine Cancer.  I spent a good portion of this last year hunkering…

    Blogging at the Speed of Life

    Sitting in front of the computer, I don’t know where to start.  Blogging has been the most dedicated practice I have ever had in my life and the last 6 months Life pushed me off my game so I could pay attention to it.  This Summer I got sick and discovered I had uterine cancer.  It took awhile for me to get the surgery that was recommended.  But Life has its way of moving you into what is important. Its trick:  The more I needed to slow down, the less my computer worked.  I was pulled far from my blogging life. Surgery behind me now….Today I woke up at 4:40…

    Inside Creativity Tribe Studio

    I have been a busy little Creative lately.  The studio is a royal mess… I say royal because I think it reflect a bit of Queen of Creativity vibe to it which I take in stride.  All that creativity is coming out of a desire to express the big journey my life is taking as I live with cancer until my upcoming surgery.  I know I mention it often in my posts, but my life really revolves around that deep self-care these days and I want to share that part of my journey with you. I feel like we all have something that drives us closer to care for yourselves.…

    Painting Up a Storm

    There is a storm in my body.  I think it has been brewing for a long time, although I didn’t know it.  Recently it made itself known in a big way.  And now, I am sitting on the front porch of my soul watching it pass over me. In the last several weeks it has felt so big that all I knew to do was sit with it. As luck would have it, I was in my studio the other night, and I began painting while I was doing that sitting.  The painting felt good.  I could tell it was doing something in my body.  Something…a hormone or feel good chemical,…

    Angel Work

    I simply marvel at the story that life writes for us.  It can be more captivating than any dime store novel, more heart breaking than the best  Hallmark commercial, funnier than an extended bloopers reel.  Sometimes it doesn’t feel so marvel-us, but if we step back just far enough and cock our head just right, we can often see magic before our very eyes. My work the last several months has been thick with stories which play out in both my inner and outer life.  Working as a life coach, creativity mentor, and massage therapist means my work can take on many shapes.  Recently, I have been working with individuals…

    Standing in the Threshold

    At the Threshold of a Journey Anytime we poise ourselves at the beginning of a journey, either in the outer physical world or from within, we begin with an idea in mind of how we might approach our movement from where we are to where we wish to go.  There are the imagined obstacles we anticipate, various options for the course traveled, milestones we hope to reach, and some desired destination that just might be worth risking disappointment for the joy it could bring.  All of this is the beauty and danger of the In-between. Should I stay or should I go, now? (You know the song!) As I prepare…

    Witnessing Discovery

    I love witnessing discovery!  The best part of Creativity Tribe is the work I do with Creatives who find their way into the projects I offer.  Sometimes it happens in a coaching session or on one of the Party Line calls, but most recently I have been connecting during preparation for the Journey of the Inner Wanna Be project. A peek into the project so far… Below you will find a video.  Before you watch it, I want to share with you the process that went into making it.  The individuals you will see are folks from my hometown.  I consider them (and many others) my local Creativity Tribe.  Some…

    Passport to Dreams Come True

    April is going to be a gloriously wild ride.  I am jumping in my Ford Element and traveling up Middle America from Texas to Wisconsin and back again. I am going on one of the most amazing journeys of my life.  How do I know?  Because I am choosing to make it so.  And I am taking you with me along the way (more about that on Monday, so make sure to drop back by….I promise this will really get your creative juices flowing!!!) Oh, but back to trip…. My Wisconsin destination takes me to the Creatives Celebrating Sisterhood Art Retreat at Lake Geneva where I am presenting a workshop…
