General Thoughts on Heroes (Spring Clean AtoZ speak)

Intro Participating in the last 3 years of Cheryl Sleboda’s spring clean blog hop has been critical in my development as an artist and my life. Not joking. Seriously, I am too busy, too engineer, too Spock, too Sheldon, too much geek or what ever box you chose to put me in. Yes, I know, I am like Yoda–weird and small saying things and doing things that don’t make sense to all. I mean no disrespect. Only…

starfish, innocence and hope

Dear Innocence, I wish you were a starfish. If you lost an arm, it would grow back. In fact, that lost arm might grow back a new body. I thought 420 was something about Earth Day. I love our Earth, it’s a spinning rock that’s mostly water–what’s not to love. No one likes to feel stupid, so I’m glad I like to fact check or I might have said something stupid.   Life is hard. We will all…

Speak Softly and Carry a Lot of Love

With the same care and respect as when I shared them with my mother-in-law, I share them with you. Speak Softly and Carry a Lot of Love; the volume (value) of a message is not measured in decibels. 9:57PM April 15, 2013 I wrote: Do you ever find yourself giving advice and realize that the words that you just have said words that are the very ones you yourself need to hear? Today found myself saying “we don’t need…

Happy New Year

Sounds, patterns, people, perspective, promise and hope. Yes, baseball! Life goes on, the world goes around. As I write this the fans at the Ballpark in Arlington cheer. Never fear Tribe fans, it’s a long season, plus it’s only the 6th inning. Baseball is a game about losing. Seriously, you don’t win a baseball game–someone makes the last out, not just one team–one individual gets credit for that last mistake.   Yes, there is a lot more to…

clash, class and sea glass

Terrified I was terrified to go back to my high school reunion last summer. Ok, it was a little exciting to see friends on Facebook. Their kids looked a lot like my friends, it was kinda cool. I didn’t keep up with high school friends. I’m just living my life. I asked Mom if she would go with me. She replied, you aren’t supposed to bring your mom to a reunion. She did teach at my school, my friends…

swoosh or clang

My mind travels back in time to a school basketball court. Time flows in one direction–like gravity always pulling us down. Like the ball, swoosh or clang on the hoop at the elementary school, pulling us to earth. There is no juggling. There is throwing, there is catching. That’s all. Seriously, juggling is one of my favorite analogies for learning. When we (I mean us humans) go to learn something new–we want to go straight to expert level.…

LIU – look it up

Look it up Three wise words. Listening to my own advice! Starting to ask a question on Facebook, and caught myself–instead I googled the term I didn’t understand. Voila, I learned something new.  So I jumped back to FB and shared the link I found. We have a wealth of information right at our fingertips, but us humans tend to rely on the people we know. Maybe it’s because finding real info on the internet is like finding a needle in a pile of…
