There really is nothing we cannot conquer together. It has been a tough year for humanity but working together, for a better future, we can achieve a better world. Working towards a new/improved Earth for all humans, for we are all connected and when one of us is hurting, humanity as a whole is hurting. It is important to remember that we can all be successful in our own way. When we learn to value ourselves we in turn value all humanity and nature, which are intertwined. Be good to yourself, be good to others, be good to the earth and in turn we will overcome these times.
First, Thank You all essential workers for your hard work. Without you we could not get through this time. You are the real heroes.
Well 2020 has been a different kind of year!
General consensus is that no one could have prepared us for this challenge. No matter your thoughts on your capability be aware you are stronger than you think.
So how do we make the most of the situation? Since we are slowing down and “physical” distancing this is a good time to look and listen to your inner self. Trust that inner self for it has been training for 300,000* years. (*National Geographic existence of humans)
Create create create …..paint, draw, play an instrument, write, sing, do what you love with no judgement or fear. Your body and mind will thank you.
The creative brain cannot be stifled. Sometimes you have to give into it’s demands and hope it will works. If it does or it doesn’t both are successful. There is no such thing as failure, just a life lesson in the making.
This is my on the wall and off the wall creation. Glad I did not listen to the inner voice that tells you take the path more travelled.
In 2016 during an art exhibit at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa a gentleman approached my booth. He asked me if I had ever exhibited at the massive art shows, like Miami. I do not remember his exact words, but he told me my work would fit right in.
He left as quickly as he came!
His calm and matter of fact mannerism provoked my curiosity! I needed to find out more about him. I did search and later that day discovered he was an Indian Vedic, with credits of helping people such as Martin Luther King Jr III, Robert F. Kennedy, and Cher to name only a few.
My life has been busy with many art exhibitions since our encounter! Fast forward to yesterday where I received notice three of my art pieces would be shown at Art Basel Miami 2019, one of the biggest art shows in the world. I leave you to your reaction of this story. I can only tell you I never forgot our encounter and shortly there after invitations to participate in shows started to flow in!
Visit the many locations during December 2 to the 8, 2019. My work will be in the Wynwood Art District.
