Whose fault is reality anyway?

Six years ago today, my youngest kid married the cat in a beautiful ceremony. There was flowers, a white veil for the bride, and a formal reading of the vows. I think even a wedding photographer was present, though I’m too lazy to try and find the photos right now. Today, that same youngest is […]

The five second rule

I don’t live by the five second rule when it comes to food. If it’s gone, it’s gone. But I am and do live by that rule when it comes to dreams. You see, I’m living a dream I’d forgotten about when life got busy. I’d always wanted to be an illustrator. Children’s books, young […]

Buying milk in a hardware store

This has got to be my favourite saying. I heard it from a friend a while ago and it stuck in my head. It really nails a point home in the right context. For example, I’m estranged from my parents and have been for a few years now. It was a deliberate move for so […]

My first jobs, in fact, were to make interactive CDs working as both programmer and interactive designer. The things I could […]

Be a relentless force

I read a lot of science articles. Fact based stuff. My interests range across the board. And one thing that gets me, and it’s been said before, is that science exists even if you don’t believe in it. Think about it: you may not believe in the tide, but it comes in and out every […]

What are you for?

I just finished a call with one of my artist friends. An amazing artist who isn’t doing as well as she should be doing. She’s facing the same issues I am, so the thoughts I had for myself, percolating in the background, came out full force for her. I was surprised actually by how formed […]

Concrete Goals Give Concrete Results

I’m part of a mastermind group for creative professionals. It is so worth it to have a close group of people who are doing the exact same journey. Each in our own way, but still, we get it. And one thing came up this week that really resonated with me. Concrete Goals Give Concrete Results […]
