Let go of this

We waste so much of our time and energy worrying about what people think of us

Do they like us

Are we acceptable

There is a group of people that I am unfortunately connected with. I’m stuck with them, it’s an extended family thing. They had a grip on me with their judgmental words, their mean words, their insinuations that I was the mean one.

Luckily, I am ostracized by them. Little do they know I broke their power years ago.

Life is much more peaceful now

Join me in breaking the chains

My anthem

If you look at the natural world there is no stasis

Things are born

They grow

They reproduce (or not)

They age

And then die

Our creative life is the same, so is our intellectual life

Try or die

Not the best watercolor but there are techniques I’ve never tried before, so good first effort

Empty vessel


If you google “empty vessel ” it seems to have so many different meanings to very different people. 

For me it means emptying myself of preconceived ideas and opinions 

Emptying bias

Emptying anger

Creating space

Leaving room for the beauty and wonder of this life 

Weeds as flowers


Why is Queen’sAnnes Lace a weed and roses aren’t?

Dandelions are nutritious and pretty, why do people hate them?

Why can’t minorities be treated the same as white people?

Makes no sense, huh?

Seize your life

Stop waiting

For Friday

Or summer 

Or love

Or your life to begin, it has

Stop making excuses and start seeing the awesome in your life because no matter how craptastic your life is

Your pillow is awesome 

Or there is a bird singing, or a sun shining or

You know right out of the oven frozen pizza is not terrible 

You are responsible for finding the tidbits of fantastic in your life

Do it now
