Sometimes I do Art

I bet you guys thought I was made of nothing but cleaning facts and lame jokes.  Well although that is fairly true, there is another part of me that is rarely allowed to express itself - my classically trained artistic side.  Yes, folks, I have a bachelor's in Art.  I know, you could never tell from my crappy drawings.  You might also be put off by my use of color and composition in the pieces below!  Everyone's a critic...I can deal.  The important thing to remember is that I'm putting it out on the line, exposing myself, strutting my raw work on your computer screens, hopefully, for your pleasure!  If it has the opposite effect, make some art about how much it offended you and strut that on MY computer screen!  (eyebrow raised in daring manner)

New Year, Same Lady, Better Everything

Hi-dee-HO readers!  Yes indeed its a New Year.  What are your resolutions?  What have you already put into motion?

I've done such a horrible job of keeping up with this blog.  If I had a new year's resolution, I think it would be to make this blog an amazing resource for folks.  I am certainly capable of doing so.  I've let a lot of things get in the way of it, including telling myself that there are so many websites "why would mine be so great or special?".  This, of course, is what many people have said in reference to many things in their lives, always with the same results of thwarted, half-hearted effort towards something that might otherwise be amazing!

How does one really apply oneself though?  How do you cut through all the crap and get down to making your thoughts and dreams a reality?!  I can't tell you how excited I am to get up to my little work room and throw some awesome information out, but something happens as soon as I step through the threshold of the doorway...stagnation, procrastination, anxiety, writer's block, and judgement!  Suddenly I can't write a thing and I start doing "not fun" stuff like taxes, just to distract myself from my worry and fear.  Why does it have to be so hard to get creative stuff...OUT!

This year is different though.  Everything is better; the air, the songs, the sun, the dirt, my clothes, your face, this blog, and that dog down the street that barks every time you pass the fenced yard.

Why is it different, you might ask?  It is different because this year we are all breaking out.  Breaking out of old habits, fearful mindsets, stigmas, closets, boredom, broken systems, and disconnectedness.  Maybe you feel like this isn't happening to you, but look closer at the subtly changing environment around you!  Take note because many people surrounding you are moving in bold directions, are losing things and gaining others, are changing their minds!  Are you SURE you're not one of them?

All these changes are not so bad, eh, though change is never easy.  Good thing for us all that there are a group of people bracing to support you!  This group is huge and it is loving!  This group includes people who are acting in government, who are acting on farms, who are learning alternative medicines, who are gathering information to share, who are focusing on freedoms and freeing resources to be utilized for the improvement of our lives and our world!  Sounds like some "hippy" crap, right?  I don't think it's just the hippies this time...There are a lot of "normal" people in this group too!

I mention this here, in this post about the newness of the year, because you might find your self somewhere NEW very soon and you might be feeling a little uneasy.  I want you to rest easy though. The infinite universe, which includes your tiny world, is abundant and prosperous!...meaning you won't go long without if you believe that its out there.  This relates back to my own challenges of course.  I am saying this as much for you as for myself.  AND I am part of that magical group that I talked about.  I'm here for you, dear reader...in ways that I have yet to be.

As Rocco says in Boondock Saints "I'll catch you on the flip side."
