This Weekend’s Lesson – Be Present

| November 10, 2009

As you may have seen over the year, much has been happening in my crazy life.  And I am constantly “multi-tasking” to get everything done.  And in the process of multi-tasking, I have made some random and sometimes costly errors.   Recently I booked a plane ticket for an arrival date a few days earlier than [...]

Your Thoughts Create Your Future: No. 282

| September 20, 2009

Call me “crazy”, but yesterday I decided during my five mile run, I would run the Crossroad Half Marathon.  It started at 8 am.  And I only made it to the starting line by 7:46 am.  As I drove to the race, I kept thinking “I must be crazy…”    I hadn’t trained as hard or [...]

In Retrospect: 48

| August 30, 2009

I just finished my 48th year in this world, yesterday.  And today is the start of the 49th.  I thought I would look back on the year and see what lessons I can take from the last twelve months.   It has been an uplifting and distressing year.  It has been marked with pain from two [...]

The Accident

| August 17, 2008

I call this image the Race to Craziness.  I love it because the canvas was covered in receipts, statistic book pages, music, tickets from everywhere that year, and more trashy novel pages. My goal was to cover the chaos of life and make it beautiful.  The piece is 24×36”.    I chose it for today’s [...]

Running for My Life

| July 12, 2008

I got up this morning with an attitude change, a significant attitude change.  Like so many of us, I have a day job.  Though stressful, it is a very cool job.  However, with that said, like so many others, we are going through downsizing, restructuring, and “right-sizing.”  And being a stress eater coupled with the [...]

American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study-3

| June 8, 2008

Yesterday was quite the busy day, with the submission for the emerging artist show and then volunteering to sign up test participants for the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3), I am just a touch tired.   I will know on Tuesday if any of my works were accepted into the show.  I am hopeful, but if [...]
