looking ahead, creatively

Jun 11, 2009 | Entrepreneurship, Life in Progress

(found somewhere near the north shore in oahu.)

lately, i’ve been asking myself this: creatively, what are your wildest dreams? the answers are vast and mixed: part of me desperately wants more time to paint (sometimes tricky to do when juggling deadlines and a commitment to a healthier schedule). my other wildest dream would be a solo show here in seattle – that would be mondo beyondo for sure. another part of me wants to write book #2, one that’s more like a memoir or inspiration. i have visions in my head of this book, but it’s all jumble right now. another part of me wants to keep expanding my creative biz, branching out into other areas. the entrepreneur in me gets really excited about this part.

but in the same breathe, i find that i’m actually – right in this very moment – in the center of my life’s wildest creative dreams. it feels so good. sometimes, i don’t even know what to do with all of the excitement about what’s happening today. but i also know that i want to keep reaching and growing. my head is dizzy these days with possibilities and with the knowing that there is plenty of space and time for all of it….and for all of us.
in other news, Taking Flight is reaching more and more people. i find that i still have so much energy and love for this book, how it came to be, and most importantly, how i wrote it while in the midst of living its meaning. the reviews keep coming via lovely emails to my inbox (thank you, thank you!) or over on amazon (secretly hoping to reach 100 reviews by its one year anniversary in september – that would be thrilling!). i wasn’t able to have a proper release party for it last fall as we were in the midst of lots of travel and a big move back to the northwest, but i’m thinking about having a 1 year anniversary party for Taking Flight in september. something here in seattle where we can invite peeps out for an evening of celebrations, perhaps some original art, and a reading or two from the book. i think it deserves a proper party, so we’ll see!
ps –  i meant to do this earlier this week, but please check our our newest sponsors over to the right. always good stuff over there 🙂

Sending much love,
