Sunbathing and working hard to inspire me with my upgraded blog.

Standing under the waxing Harvest Moon on Monument Mesa, Diana called to my soul. Do you remember the year I was eclipsed? The crossroads? The infinite possibilities? I smiled.
She reminded me of a leap, not of faith, but of knowing. What holds you back now, says she?
Sometimes change unravels your life's tapestry to create a crossroad to new potential outcomes.
Check back to see what blog this Harvest Moon conspired to create.

The reality is some days it is, some days not so much. Moving from a green, temperate rain forest at sea level to the cold desert at 4600 feet, leaving work/community, and friends that feel like home to no work/school/children/teachers and being on unemployment, a completely new community and one local friend is like putting yourself and life into a blender and hitting frappe. The word pulverized comes to mind. Everything about my life has been remade into something that does not quite look or feel the same, with the exception of my incredible husband and dogs.

"What does this mean to you?" said the teacher.
For a brief moment, silence spoke. Whispers began in the back of the classroom and then came the giggles.
"Gross, shoes stink!" exclaimed Jordan.
"I tried mi tios zapatos and fell down the stairs." said Pedro.
"I like my moms' pointy toe spikes. They make me feel tall," said Kyllie.
The kid who wears sneakers with no socks sunk low in his chair and pulled his feet back tucking them underneath his seat.
"Cool, let's switch shoes!" hollered Jon.
In less than 2 seconds, the class was in chaos and the lesson was lost. Foot odor wafted over the classroom filled with giggles and the word gross.

What's your favorite Dr. Seuss book? I absolutely love The Sneetches and of course Go, Dogs Go.

The simple word goal is the current buzzword with my writer and illustrator groups. Goals either are met or not. January 1st, do you have a goal yet for 2010? How about 2 or 3? What about categories of goals?
Today, I decided to look at my 2009 goals. I know I met a few. If you have to look for your goals, what are you admitting to? I looked in my old emails, old computer files, and my filed items in my studio, and the never ending “to be” filed pile. No Luck.
One aspect of my buy-the–dog-kibble job is to teach kids how to set goals, work at them and meet them. I monitor kids goals every grading period. It seems so simple in the system, time orientated life during a school year. My supervisor would be laughing knowing I was blogging about loosing my goals.
What’s a creative soul to do? I could waste more time looking for my old goals, set new goals only to lost in the shuffle of life, or get busy and create. I choose create.
