No not a Halloween post yet but just a …..

day in the life of me. Have you ever had an unexpected experience that totally changed your life in so many ways. I have and you know it make me strengthen my faith, go crazy, have great days and then bad ones, patience, rely on my intuition, be okay with altering course, to be stronger, to be organized, have patience, learn from mistakes and well that my ultimate dream is to write a book for children.  Yeah is has been one awesome journey taking over a classroom for a month. I am glad to have done so and wow amazing to watch them be excited about learning.

What has been your experience? Do tell and by the way I will be going to Disneyland this weekend and will be taking lots of pictures of the cool Halloween festivities.

-Keep it sweet.

You must read this quote…

He famously said, ‘I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.'”  -Thomas Edison

I love this and it is so true. I know more than ever what I want to do with my life and once again my art is the primary source of making this happen. What do you all think?

Practice and Preview Of What’s To Come!

I am a fan of Ed Sheeran and an even bigger fan when I read that he wrote  A-team in a matter of days…pretty awesome! When asked how he does it he quotes words by John Mayer, “If you want to be good at something do it about 5,000 times.”

 

Here is my beginning practice. I feel more and more confident. I still have a long way to go. What are you working on?

Pay Attention To Details

How any times have you heard this little saying.  So last night I tuned in to the making of FROZEN the Disney movie. I tuned in and was intrigued at how over 600 people worked together as an awesome team to create this amazing movie I have yet to see. I am not sure why I haven’t seen it because I think it is an amazing movie and story. So many little details come together to create the movie. I realized that it is in the details that we to can learn and create a masterpiece. The story was great but it didn’t come to life without the right gestures, settings, and every single element that makes this film seem everything but a fairytale.  It is a story of love and courage and embracing who you are. Who can’t relate to this.

My point is that no matter what a person does it has to be all in the details. My art, well I realize that I do love the purpose behind every quote and poem. The details and details of spacing and getting every letter right is what I need to focus on. I have had some great practice and will be posting my practice in the days to come.

Have you ever heard …

that you can’t keep doing the same thing you are doing and expect things to change.  I read this article and what impeccable timing. The article was about how successful people learn from mistakes and move on. Successful people make the changes and eventually get it right. I realize these days more than ever, what really makes me happy. It is in knowing that someone, and that someone these days is the children I have been guest teaching, learned something valuable and that knowledge is power. It is wonderful to know that you can learn something and potentially change the world. I realize that for me all I love to do is think about what motivates me and the words in a song or book.  All I want to do is do this share my thoughts via art and well the artwork I create. 08121413580812141346

Here is an update on my hand printing and drawing. It means the world to me that I can inspire others, especially children. I have been having a hard time working on my art and feeling down that it is taking time to prosper. I will give it all the time it needs. I am making changes and learning so much. I know it will be worth it. I have this idea that I would like to write a children’s book. How do I go about doing this? I am determined to find out.  What are you recognizing these days as the love that you want to pursue and focus on making the changes to make it happen?
