Trading Uncertainty for Desire

“Should” “Have to” “Try To” are all common phrases I catch myself saying. All of us do. We “want to”… “try to” be or do or accomplish something. Hidden in each of those phrases is the undercurrent of an alternative set of emotions: Shame, guilt, and self-doubt. When we find

Embracing Being a Generalist.

My interests come in go in waves, typically over about a two year time frame. I find something new, and I obsess about it and pretty much devour everything I can on the subject, to a point, then I move on. I go deep enough to get the general framework,

Breathing Room

I’m currently in Mendocino, a few hours North of San Fransisco. I’m staying in what used to be a comune, so that cabins are hand-built. There is a live creek that provides water for the property, and there are still dense pockets of forest, despite being cleared out

Your Creativity Fire

In our time together, I haven't once given you a tip about a morning routine. Or a step by step program for social media. Or how you might become an influencer of some kind. I don't think this is what any of you want. And if this does happen, it

The Inspiration Formula

Art is about the approach to your craft! And that's why it's so mysterious. Could I really write up a post that gives you a "how to" for being the Beatles? Or Michael Jackson? Or Jackson Pollack or Patti Smith? A formula for inspiration? It doesn't exist. We want prescriptions,

Being You

We all just want to be free to be ourselves, don't we? Isn't that what we're really after? But most of the time we don't feel like we'll be accepted as just that. So instead, we learn to act a bit differently for acceptance. Maybe it's an age thing, and
