Chop! Chop!

Washing the cray-cray work week out of my newly chopped hair. 


Feelin' free and ready for adventure. Got my new elephant yoga hot pants awaiting the suitcase. Let's GO!

My inner weirdo was fast. 

I started with the chicken but ended up liking the egg more. I feel like the egg. 

Potential. Birth.

Just sent my "Which Came First?" entry into the Lemonade Stand Small Works show. The Lemonade Stand was a working gallery I saw years ago on a visit to Key West. I loved it so much, it became a guide post for what I wanted and where I thought I should be. 

Mostly it was what I desperately craved when I was still in advertising. 

It never seemed to come together for me until I moved down here and properly stalked Letty until she gave me a job. I just wanted to be a part of it so much and for good reason. Met many good friends through it and got to play in a world I longed to live in.

Did a lot of marketing and helping with shows my first year or so down. Ironically, it was the small works show that eventually made me choose to leave the gallery. Just decided gallery work was not for me and was grateful for the chance to figure that out.

No matter what happens with the entry, it feels good to finally get into this space with my artwork. And the Lemonade Stand is the perfect gallery to submit to. 

One thing that artisan market definitely showed me is it can be fun to share my artwork with others. Let that inner weirdo shine!

So here we are full circle. Feels complete.

Open Heart

How often do you let your heart shine forward?

Something I am constantly aware of after that Luminous Body and Shamanic cord cutting yoga workshop last week.

The whole focus of yoga is to open yourself up through poses and breath work. I get that message constantly when Sofia comes around to push me deeper into my downward dog so my heart can really open.

Noticing when I start protecting it by slumping in my posture or hiding it when riding my bike. Conscious to let my heart lead the way, I open it forward and you know what? It changes my whole mood immediately. 

I embrace people fuller. I absorb more. I feel more. 

They say the heart is the true mind center of the body. It even has neuron cells that are the same ones found in the brain. 

I asked for this on my Ayahuasca journey a couple of years back. To learn how to live life with an open heart. 

Its happening.

Saw another great movie with a lot of heart last night. Made me proud to be a part of a great restaurant in town. 

The restaurant business really is an adrenaline rush and an immediate primal connection to people in a lot of ways. If you like food, go see Chef.
