I read George Lois’s Damn Good Advice like some might read Anthony de Mello’s meditations. 

I consumed The Storyteller’s Secret like I was starving. 

I recently realized I’m actually obsessed with telling stories. One of my very best reads, as of right now, is the Passage Trilogy by Justin Cunin. Each book 1000 pages long. 100% better then Under the Dome   by Stephen King.

I’m writing this sitting in the library.

You probably figured it out, I like to read.

I have a dog called Maggie. I used to have a dog called Di, the love of my life. Then Rosie, short story. When Di passed away, we found a new home for Rosie. No, those events are not related. It just happened like that. Maggie stayed, but in meantime, we also had Muffy and Jitterbug.

When I was a kid everybody called me the “doggy mom”. I wanted to adopt every single dog I came into contact with. Even those who were about to bite my head off. 

 

I put cayenne pepper in my smoothie

My kids eat with their feet on the table... occasionally...

and I'm trying to have a new attitude towards certain people and events in my life

I’m passionate about women, and their superhuman powers.  

In my self-portrait project, I teach women to get rid of the image that comes to mind when they hear the selfie word. A selfish intake on putting yourself in the center of the attention…
The “self-portrait” I see when I use that word is an empty canvas waiting to be filled with an amazingness. And the artist is also you.

I say, use yourself to show to the world who you are inside!!! Tell a story!!! Be involved!!! You are a wonderful part of this world!!! Make your voice heard!!!
