History in the making
We are in the middle of history right now. I guess we always are. Yet, somehow, this episode is bigger than most. I think we can all recognize that. 2020 is a year to be carved on the rocks, written in the books, and told around the fires. We are living it, baby.
I know it can be hard to keep your wits about you when you feel that all is falling. But really, that is so simply in our head. "No one is ever promised tomorrow", or some other inspirational, carpe diem quote. Our security is moment to moment, and in this, we are free! So write your own story while you have the chance. Life moves beautifully quick.
Artists in the making
In spite of all the fear we are fed through the news and social media, I chose to focus on the creative, joyful ideas. These are the building blocks of our next chapter. And a great way to chill out and enjoy things simply to enjoy them.
Carly over at Flamingo Flea has created a virtual version of her spectacular flea markets. Her markets cater to the south Florida area with focuses on handmade or hand picked items. Each of her vendors put a lot of work into their craft and I am proud to be hosted along with them on her virtual flea market page.
While looking I want you to feel honored to be able to have such a great way to connect with others while still staying safe. Feel happy. Enjoy yourself. There is never pressure to purchase, even a follow or page like can really help small businesses. Do what you feel is right.
Remember, confinement is only a state of mind.
I am first + foremost, a creative. I love to take an idea and create it into something tangible. To build + organize a design, an idea, or a goal + see it actually materialize by my hands is something hard to describe. I will always cherish + cultivate my ability to do this. Here is a little about what I have learned + maybe peeks at my artistic life journey so far.
