the danger of indecision

The Danger of Indecision

I learned long ago that in order to get what I want in this world I must be willing to ask for it. From asking the barista for that special concoction of flavors combined exactly to my liking, to inviting people into important conversations, I make many requests daily.

Discover Your Inner Artist

Discovering My Inner Artist

Everyone has an “inner critic”  Recently, I’ve been inspired by my niece, Emily St. Germain, to explore the long forgotten inner artist that’s in me. Since I’m never shy to ask for help, I’ve hired a guide to help me explore ways to create free expression, from the inside out.
