This year is going to be full of opportunities, synchronicities, possibilities, and dreams realized for everyone who welcomes creative change.

Graceful Endings

Two things have stuck in my mind in a good way. They really help me to figure out what to do next or where I’m going wrong.  One is “Follow through.” Whether it’s a golf swing, bowling toss, tennis volley, or stroke in swimming, you only get the full benefit if you follow through. You…

Clean It Up

Creating things is messy.  Transforming one thing into something else means that there are bits left over here and bits over there.  At the end what we are left with is the completed goal of the creation and the remains. Which means that before we can start on something new we need to clean things…
