Painting Dreams

This painting hangs in my living room. I did this one about 10 years ago. The brown bowl I made maybe 15 years ago. The mortar and pestle reside in my kitchen cabinet. 

This painting isn't finished. Far from it in fact. Well, at least to ME, it's not. Anyone else looking at it might not realize how much more work there is to do. 

Sometimes I think I forget that I'm not finished either. No, this isn't all there is to me. I'm still learning, developing and growing. I'm not done. There are still many things I want to do. It's so easy to get bogged down by the daily chores and forget that I have dreams that I need to pursue. 


12 Things

If you had to reduce your personal items to just 12 Things, what would they be? Not the essentials, like kids, spouse, clothes, toothbrush, air, etc, but the "STUFF"...possessions that you COULD live without, but really wouldn't want to.

Mine (in no particular order):
  1) My Nikon D40 (although I would let it go for an upgrade without a second thought)
  2) Laptop (ditto on the upgrade)
  3) Henry the stuffed puppy I've had since I was 3
  4) Blue ceramic snail made by Doodle
  5) Family photos
  6) Wooden wind chimes that my sister bought for me when I visited her in California 
  7) The wedding quilt my grandma made for me
  8) Ceramic road runner mom made
  9) Ceramic sculpture called "The Hug" that mom made
10) the copy of The Portable Beat Reader I've had since high school
11) My blue leather Fossil purse
12) My hot pink "chucks"


The Domino Project from Seth Godin

"Read This Before Our Next Meeting" should be required reading by anyone in any business anywhere who has the authority to "call a meeting"!!! The typical department meeting is one of the biggest wastes of time in practice today. This book could really change that.
