“What if funky, confusing, lonely, gray days…”

Just had to share today’s “Thought From The Universe” (via Mike Dooley.)*

“What if funky, confusing, GRAY, Lonely days were just
part of a “system” that,
in turn, created BRIGHT, RICH, H:-)PPY, FRIENDLY days?

What if they were just meant to give deeper elements of
your creativity a rest?

What if they were deliberately crafted holidays, of a sort,
devised by your inner psyche to relieve you from the pressure
of artificial expectations?

Would you still bemoan them, wonder what’s wrong with you,
or fear that they’ll never end?

Or, would they kind of tickle you pink?

You party animal, you –
my daily “Note From The Universe”*

PS: “I knew “tickle” would get your attention!”

Art Licensing information

I’ve been learning with artist, Tara Reed and she has partnered with Paul Brent. Today, I’m working on updating and improving my art for licensing web pages and listening to Tara’s interview with Paul Brent.

It’s a free online audio file and every time I listen, I get another piece of information that is moving me forward. I’ll be contacting a very special referral next week and my web pages must be in tip top shape for this! SAMPLE FLOWERS AND TREES ART PAGE HERE
