Strange Magic: Work in Progress

Yes, that’s right, the drawing now has an official name. “Strange Magic” after the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) song of the same name, which I came upon by “accident” yesterday. It was a discovery because, although I’ve heard the song many times before, I never listened very closely to the words. Here are some ofContinue reading “Strange Magic: Work in Progress”

New Drawing: Work-In-Progress

Yesterday I posted one of my more “philosophical” posts. Then I changed my mind a few hours later and took it offline. The truth is, my ideas about my life and where it’s headed are changing that quickly. The truth is that, if you’ve read some of my older posts, there is probably a lotContinue reading “New Drawing: Work-In-Progress”

The Blue Guy Returns: Sneak Preview

In April and May 2020, I created a series of daily “Happy Drawings.” The you-know-what current situation had just started a couple months before and I had decided to try Facebook again. These drawings were among the first things I posted there upon my return. My intention was to hopefully add a little happiness toContinue reading “The Blue Guy Returns: Sneak Preview”

Finding the Jewel in Your Life

This whole post is an excuse to post a link to this video. It’s a clip from the Joe Rogan show with Jewel and when I heard it the first time yesterday, I was blown away. Exactly, exactly the right-place-right-time for this one. Please listen. You just have to listen. So very beautiful and inspiring.Continue reading “Finding the Jewel in Your Life”

Creative Journey Outcome: Success!

It’s been over 6 weeks since my 40-day Creative Journey ended. Although I’ve seen changes, I wasn’t convinced much big had happened, until this morning, when I woke up excited to start my day. This is a big deal to me, actually a huge deal, after years of low mood issues. I’m still following aContinue reading “Creative Journey Outcome: Success!”

Restoring Energy

Have been resting a lot over the last couple of days and plan to continue. Seeking energy restoration, which perhaps means finding internal reserves, or “natural resources” if you will. I thought it’d be nice, though, to do a recap of my Creativity Journey drawings so far. Day 16 – so a nice number forContinue reading “Restoring Energy”

I’m on a Journey – One I Can Take from the Comfort of My Couch

Yesterday, I embarked on a 40 day creativity journey. This idea was initially sparked by a podcast from Jennifer Bailey, about the importance of setting up a daily “alignment (good mood) practice,” which I’ve been doing in a very unstructured way for a while now. Then the other day, I came upon a Gabby BernsteinContinue reading “I’m on a Journey – One I Can Take from the Comfort of My Couch”

Happy happy joy joy Dot (#12)

It’s got a spiral and some mountains and clouds and flowers and and …. a little bit of almost everything and with happy bright colors. I’m posting this pretty late, so just showing the throw pillow, but as usual, many items available at Society 6 and more can be added upon request.

Minds website

I don’t do Facebook, but I just started with Minds. Just posted this. Kind of nervous because often what seems well thought out in the moment for me later seems silly or stupid. Still though, this is meaningful to me for now. “Message today while meditating: “You’re on the right track.” For years, I’ve triedContinue reading “Minds website”

This week’s design challenge entry

My entry for the weekly Spoonflower design challenge, inspired by a talk by Beatrice Schachenmayr ( @frameyourstoryproject http://frameyourstory.org/ ) that I attended recently. She mentioned the Georgia O’Keeffe quote as part of the talk and it struck me as something I’d been pondering for a while but hadn’t yet put into words. And then thisContinue reading “This week’s design challenge entry”
