Seen Your Worst Think The BestSeen Your Worst Think The Best 2

It is so easy for people to love you at your best, but what happens when they see you at your worst? This is bound to happen eventually, even if it takes years, and if it does take years, then what?

Hold strong … the love of the arts

Art and the soulI am an artist

I support the arts, I love the arts – I am artsy! What can I say, while I was working in the business world, I was always craving something else, “what was missing?” I would ask myself? As it turned out, it was my artistic side that was not being fueled.

Working with artistic types is so different. So much passion for what they do, in fact I have so much passion for what I do (or am trying to do) now.

We are here for a finite time, so what do we want to accomplish? If you have been reading my blog and even following it, you already know that I want to live, enjoy, experience and do good … surrounded by friends and family.

I hope to live my life and make a difference. That is, to make a difference to the world, the people in my life, and the people that I come in contact with. I want to leave the world a better place.

Protecting kids in the social media and digital age

Kids and technology

Facebook, Twitter, Cellphones, Digital Cameras, Internet … With all this technology it becomes harder and harder to protect our kids. As a parent this has become of increasing interest and worry to me as my daughters grow up with all this technology. They are so proficient and can’t wait to get cellphones and set up social media accounts.
