Journal Bliss, and the fun begins!

The celebrations began last week for my 53rd birthday. Funny I still feel 13. Seems like I just started doing what I truly love. I am only forty years behind. Oh well it's never too late to follow your Bliss as my friend Violette touts in her New Book Journal Bliss. Be sure to pop back on monday when Violette answers a few questions I threw her way for a promotional blog tour supporting her visually exciting and inspirational new book! I could not be more thrilled for my friend than if I'd written the book myself!!
Last night we had a scrumptious Greek dinner on the beach where the time flew by as we flitted from one subject to another with a sense of glee. Never enough time to fit in all the ideas when two Gemini minds ignite! Violette urged me to draw and start a blog, guiding me out of a dark forest where's I'd been aimlessly walking through a labyrinth of creativity trying to find the right direction. Having been the first person to refer to me as an artist Violette has been my creative doula. Supporting me through the birth of my art when I had no clue I could draw a stick! It's a gift that keeps on giving, filling me up, it's a mystery, a prophecy, an endless vessel of fulfillment. I only wish I'd been introduced to the possibilities of that gift when I was thirteen. If you know of any artistic people creatively flailing around be sure to recommend this book to help them out of their creative doldrums! Also a perfect gift for an artistic grad!
Today is my birthday, it's hot and the suns shining. I'm doing exactly what I want to do. I considered test driving a Honda Fit. Instead I'm finishing up a revamp on an old table, reading Violette's book Journal Bliss, the kids are making me a BBQ. I will continue to do art, while watching a few movies we rented....the perfect day in my eyes.Oh yeah and I have to fit in a nap since I was awake at three AM last night!!!


I hand you my heart!

Tomorrow it's goddess night with my girls and more hook ups next week. I feel so blessed to have phenomenal group in my life. I can never say it enough...thank you to my friends and family, I love you all implicitly!!
A special shout out to Violette who continues to feed me inspiration by just being herself!!
