Creative work is mostly showing up every day and enduring a million tiny failures as you feel your way to something a bit new.


Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world. But the marks humans leave are too often scars.





Someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.



Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all.


Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart. Confucius


Allow beauty to shatter you regularly . . . you must allow yourself to feel your life while you’re in it.


There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow.

May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.

I promise you, I’m always there when your heart is filled with sorrow and despair. I’ll carry you when you need a friend. You’ll find my footprints in the sand.



If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is to be present in the present . . . gratefully.



“Creativity is …

“Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.” Einstein
