100 Ways to be Grateful Like an Artist

I wrote this post because I was in a bit of a funk. Y’know, dwelling on the not-so-good things. Not focusing enough upon what I really want, which is to be happy. Really, truly, in-my-cells HAPPY. The kind of happiness that is the result of being consciously, blissfully in love with and in the flow of God or Source or the Universe (however you think of it) – and from which all other desires and awesomeness pours out. Yeah, THAT kind of happy. Life as an artist happy. That is my biggest desire.

Soaking in a Sunset – with VIDA

I met with VIDA yesterday. It was A-MAZ-ING!!! (I shared what I’m working on with them in this recent post.)

I’ll have photos and video soon… cause OF COURSE I want to keep y’all in the loop. I got to see sample pieces with my images on them… they’re gorrrrrgeous! Plus I got to visit with Umaimah Mendhro, who is like a sister-of-the-heart in her approach to art and life. I really believe in what she’s doing and the good that can be done in the world.  I walked away excited, humbled, inspired and completely stoked for all that’s coming next!

“VIDA” is such a wonderful name for a vibrant company that makes beautiful things and has a global consciousness.  In Spanish, vida means “life”; in Persian, it means “a rare find”; in Hebrew, it means “beloved”; and in Sanskrit, it means “wisdom.” All of these – and more – are at play and about to unfold in touchable, wearable, purchasable form in the KHutt world. It’s a new beginning… and a continuation of a life journey!

I though a moment by the water with a beautiful sunset might be a way to soak it all in…
