Dancing Faster Than Ever! (written by one of my mentors)

Dancing faster then ever, but why?

I just read a relentlessly snarky profile of the brilliant chef Charlie Trotter. Charlie is one of the pioneers of modern cooking, a gracious host and a perfectionist as well.

The Times is disappointed that he hasn't opened chains of restaurants, made a fool of himself on reality TV or decamped to a more expensive building in Chicago. All he's done, it seems, is mentor an entire generation of chefs, consistently create amazing meals and also donate once-in-a-lifetime, multi-course dinners for rising high school students in Chicago (150 times a year).

There will always be someone telling you that you're not hip enough, famous enough, edgy enough or whatever enough. That's their agenda. What's yours?

Shun the non-believers.

Sara Hart, A True Artist

It's not often that I post twice in one day, but this is worth it in my opinion. Being an artist, I have tons of people in my direct circle that are truly talented and worthy of praise. I wanted to take the time to introduce you to one of my favorites, Sara Hart.

   I have known her for about 5 years now and I believe that she has grown immensely over this time. She comes from a photographer father who shot constantly when she was a young child up until her teens. Her ability to see things from a wonderful perspective is truly divine. I support her work 100% and I do recommend calling upon her for your next project should you need an artist who is mega talented and full of wonderful energy!!!She is busy though, so plan accordingly!!!

   I specifically did not tell you about all of her talents. I suggest that you go to her site and see it for yourselves. By the way, I get nothing for posting this little blurb, however, I am certain that if you tell her that you heard about her f…

The Elephant In The Room

I can approach this posting from many different ways, so I will take my time and be careful how I lay this down. I just read story about a man that is being highly exposed all over the net for doing something that many people do not agree with. I do not know him personally, yet I am connected to him in a business way. So as I sit here and ponder
over whether I am going to cease to do business with him, I have to ask myself some questions. Am I angry with him?
Did his actions place any direct strains on me or my life? Will continuing to do business with him say something about me and my integrity? Would I have done what he did under any circumstances? All of these questions and more are swimming through my head at this very moment.

     These are the moments that are truly magic in my opinion. The moments that challenge who we are and how we process things when the house of cards fall around us. In this case, because we live in a time that any information from any part of the wor…

40 Years Young

There are so many assumptions that people make when it comes to age. We think that certain things will be in place and that specific things will happen. The voices all around us speak of family and homes and professions and so many other life decisions. In truth, how can we speak of what we have not experienced until it actually happens. If I told you what a particular fruit tastes like and did it with sharp detail and carefully selected words, could you feel the texture and the juices of that fruit running down your throat? The answer is no, you could not because you have never tried it before.

       Today I turned 40 and I can honestly say that I had no expectations for this day. It is just another day, however, I have 40 years of prior knowledge under my belt and I intend to use it very tactfully. So one might ask, what was my perspective at 30 or at 20? I cannot say for sure, but I can say that it has brought me to where I am today. I feel young and vibrant and free in many…

Earth Hour

Two days ago marked the fifth anniversary of this wonderful hour when people all over the world shut their lights off for one hour at the same time. The concept is brilliant in my opinion. It saved a significant amount of power and it was because of the effort of millions making a choice.

      A question comes to mind. Could we have a no hate hour? How about an all love weekend? What if we could have a no complaining Monday? I think you get my point.

      Someone thought of this concept that has now made it around the world. What can you initiate that could change history that serves human beings everywhere? Just a thought.
