Hello to you listening in New London, Connecticut!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.Steve Jobs is quoted as saying, “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.” In fact, some of his early ideas were lifted from Xerox; but he went on to develop his own products using his own creative thinking and intelligence. Copying is just a cheater's game.What do I mean? Decades ago one of my story mentors, the inimitable Jay O'Callahan, wrote a story called Orange Cheeks about his childhood days visiting a beloved grandmother. Imagine hearing someone else tell your personal story onstage - as he did -  as if it were their own experience, their own work, no permission, no attribution. Drummed into me at a very early storytelling age was this: you do not co-opt, conscript, copy, mimic, or take someone else's work and call it your own.As a well-regarded and brilliant wordsmith I am often told, “Oh! That's perfect! I'm taking that question, tagline, idea, turn of phrase, imagery ...”  To you I say this: No, you won't. You are smart, creative individuals capable of independent thought. Come up with your own style of expression. Copying someone else's work is sheer and utter laziness.Question: What do you think about that?  You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

In this episode of Art of the Kickstarter, we spoke with Chad Hickman and Garret Prather, creators of Yardball. This Kickstarter campaign has earned the support of almost 2,000 backers, which pushes Yardball's motto, the ball for all. Yardball started as a tape ball that was tossed in the office, and the team worked through multiple prototypes and name changes to get ready for launch. Listen to learn how Chad and Garret took a ball of tape and transformed it into Yardball. Short on time? Here's what we talked about. Marketing looks different for every product, and Yardball's marketing involved kids playing with it in the yard and people tossing it around at tailgates.    Sandlot Goods originally made leather goods as a hobby, which led to the creation of Kansas City merchandise. Once they began creating pandemic-related products, like testing gowns and masks, they made connections that helped them launch the rest of their ​leather goods line. Naming a product is challenging. It needs to be catchy, not under trademark or copyright, and fit your brand's personality. Learn how the Yardball team landed on “Yardball.” The team decided to test out crowdfunding with Yardball to provide market validation and give them the confidence to scale.

Gentlemen, thank you so much for joining us today on Art of the Kickstart. Chad Hickman: Yeah, thanks for having us. Garret Prather: Yep. Glad to be here. Roy Morejon: I know we had some tech difficulties, but we're here, we're ready to play. First off, I've got to say congrats. You guys have a campaign that has reached and been supported by over 1,000 backers, which is huge. You've almost raised almost $50,000 for this campaign, Yardball, the ball for all.

How do you facilitate teacher-led change in the classroom? In this throwback episode Dr. Cyndi Burnett and Dr. Matthew Worwood revisit their interview with Dr. Kulvarn Atwal, an executive headteacher of two large primary schools in East London and author of The Thinking School. Listen in to hear Dr. Atwal share his thoughts on educational leadership and how to facilitate teacher-led change in the classroom. He sheds light on the importance of trial and error in school systems, how school leaders can support the creativity of teachers, and ways administrators can spark curiosity and professional development in tenured teachers. Dr. Atwal also gives advice for teachers who crave professional development but don't have opportunities to foster it. Then, he talks a bit about his next book for empowering teachers, The Thinking Teacher. “The greatest single factor that impacts upon the quality of children's learning in school, students' learning, is quite straightforward. It's the quality of teaching.” - Dr. Kulvarn Atwal Dr. Atwal's Tips for School Administrators: Give teachers more opportunities to collaborate with other teachers and engage in dialogue without having to report back or hit a target. Create culture in which you actively inquire or ask about what your teachers are good at and what they'd like to improve in. This works well if you lead by example. Express your school's values, mission, and goals. Don't deviate from those. About Dr. Kulvarn Atwal: Dr. Kulvarn Atwal was born and educated in East London and has been headteacher for nine years of the school he attended as a child. in 2018/19 he was Executive Head Teacher of two primary schools; both of which were graded Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. His doctoral thesis, completed in 2016, examined the factors that influence teacher learning in schools.

Many educators think of creativity as open-ended 'free-time' activities. But creative thinking strategies are powerful tools to empower learners, build comprehension, increase content comprehension, engage students in the learning process, and increase student ownership for learning. Creative thinking is one of the top qualities companies around the world look for when hiring new employees, yet it is often ignored within our educational system. The focus is too often on 'what to think' instead of helping students learn 'how to think.' Moving creative thinking into the mainstream of education not only involves the commitment of classroom teachers, but needs the support of school administrators. We need creative-thinking teachers and creative-thinking students working together for creative thinking to become a life-long skill. Dr. Juntune has been fortunate to witness & experience this as a K-12 teacher and now university professor & program director of Creative Studies at Texas A&M.

Albert Vasquez sits down with Lee to talk about his journey and his real estate team, AV Home Experts based in the Miami area. Albert has had an unusual path to building the team, but he's done it methodically by being consistent while still iterating and evolving over time. The team has recently been recognized by NAHREP and made the Real Trends list. Albert talks about how making the journey as a real estate family and having shared growth (and the shared struggle!) and celebrating wins together. He is excellent at helping agents find their why and building a business and lifestyle that works for them - it looks different for different people. Growth can be different for everyone and he uses that to lead the team. One big win for one of his agents was just taking a month off. "Success can be measured by different metrics, and it's not just the money," says Albert. As a team leader, it can be a challenge to keep everyone engaged and motivated. Albert is also a creative thinker and that's been a huge differentiator for everything from recruiting to lead generation. Albert - though he is very Operations-minded - he has just added a dedicated Operations Manager. We talk on why he feels he still needs an Ops manager and his vision for the future of his company - and how that's evolved over time.

Creative Thinking Programme Recruiting Mentors For 4,000 Irish Students

The design trailblazer behind a popular creative thinking programme being run in Irish schools says her team is this month about to embark on a gargantuan recruitment drive for mentors, seeking a whopping 800 professionals from across all sectors to help roll out The Big Idea to 4,000 students next year. Kim Mackenzie-Doyle from Carlow says creative thinking is a much-needed skill required by society and industry but has not been taught in Irish schools until now. The designer founded the multi-award-winning, free, creative-thinking programme for 15 to 16-year-olds in 2020 to bridge the gap between industry and education. “Creativity is a much-needed skill required by society and industry, yet it's not taught in our schools. And when I say creativity, I don't mean art. I mean using creative thinking to solve the biggest problems that face society,” says Kim. More than 2,000 students were supported by 400 Big Idea mentors this year. The mentor list reads as a who's-who of the innovation scene in Ireland with tech gurus, designers, creative directors, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, architects, educators, graphic designers, legal experts, marketing and brand specialists and more taking part. Mentors volunteered from innovative companies such as Stripe, Ikea, Bord Gáis Energy, UCC, MSD, Aerogen, Primark, Microsoft, Accenture and Deloitte to name a few. Kim says creativity is undervalued and misunderstood in Ireland. “When people think about creativity, they think about the arts. Being an artist is quite different to being creative. Artists make art of their choice from their inspiration. Creativity is everywhere and is fundamental to progress, in industry, society and education,” she says. She says that creativity thrives in collaborative settings which is why a diverse range of mentors steps up the learning for the students. “The more diversity the better. People with different experiences and backgrounds add so much richness to creative collaboration, proving that two or more heads are better than one.” Teaching the creative process Kim, who designed the world's best-selling computer mouse – the Logitech MX305 – while she was working at Design Partners, says the creative process is a step-by-step approach, which is why it can be taught. However, she fears that Ireland needs to put more time into creative education. “On a national scale, not investing in creativity will dampen Ireland's innovative spark. That's why we need programmes like The Big Idea so we can be proactive, focus on the issues that need solutions and teach and engage creative and critical thinking to come up with big ideas to solve national and global issues – now and in the future.” The winning Big Idea 2022 came from a student team at St Leo's College in Carlow with their app which uses QR codes to give recycling instructions with an integrated recycling reward scheme. “The other Big Ideas this year were incredible such as flatpack wind turbines, sustainable housing domes, an LGBTQ+ social media platform, a youth centre designed by teens for teens to promote positive mental health and a disease tracker app. While all of the projects and ideas were fantastic, we are also interested in the creative process that the students follow for the programme. How they arrived at their idea is just as important as the idea itself. But of course, we would love to see the students develop their ideas,” says Kim. Kim is also a member of the Design Skills Implementation Group as part of the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs. She is representing education in a multi-sector approach to address the national shortage of digital, product and strategic design professionals. The group recently published ‘Together for Design – Year in Review 2021-2022', a report which focuses on the design skills required by Irish enterprises from 2020 to 2025.

Sam Parton (The Be Good Tanyas)  "The Littlest Birds Sing The Prettiest Songs"   Episode SummaryIn this episode Kate speaks with Sam Parton, founding member of the wildly popular Canadian Alt Folk band The Be Good Tanyas. Their debut album Blue Horse was named 2002's top 50 releases by Q Magazine (UK) and the band would go on to release more albums cherished by fans all over the world. Their albums Chinatown and Hello Love were met with glowing reviews including four stars from Rolling Stone Magazine and the band sold out concert halls across North America and Europe. Sam tells us about how trauma from her early childhood ultimately set her on a journey that would see her not only find her musical voice and people, but create what I think is one of the greatest Canadian bands of all time The Be Good Tanyas. She tells us what she thinks creativity is and what it wants from us, how she found her bandmates, the joy and challenges of collaboration, and how lyrics come to her -  including the story of how one of my very favourite songs of all time by any band was written, The Littlest Birds Sing the Prettiest Songs (hear an excerpt of this song in the episode) Things Sam and I talk about-Her ideas on how creativity and creative intelligence are often part of a lineage and the yearning that can create within us -How being a twin made her into a great collaborator-Finding her long lost father and how that separation fed her desire to become a musician-Growing up in the shadow of a sibling born with extraordinary musical talent, and in a home with tormented, abusive adults feeling that she had to do her music in secret and how the grief from those things ultimately drove her to find and express her own creative gifts-The magic that can happen when we know how to approach creativity from a place of truly not knowing, beginner's mind. -What is inspiration and why do we feel like we have to wait for it? What if it is waiting for us? -How she met Frazey Ford, co-founding member of the be Good Tanyas-The joys and challenges of creative collaboration-How the words and melody for The Littlest Birds Sing the Prettiest Songs came to her and what the song means to herBuy her music on Bandcamp!Episode NotesIn this episode Kate speaks with Sam Parton, founding member of the wildly popular, Canadian Alt Folk band The Be Good Tanyas. Their debut album Blue Horse was named 2002's top 50 releases by Q Magazine (UK) and the band would go on to release more albums cherished by fans all over the world. Their albums Chinatown and Hello Love were met with glowing reviews including four stars from Rolling Stone and the band sold out concert halls across North America and Europe. Sam tells us about how trauma from her early childhood ultimately set her on a journey that would see her not only find her musical voice and people, but create what I think is one of the greatest Canadian bands of all time The Be Good Tanyas. She tells us what she thinks creativity is and what it wants from us, how she found her bandmates, the joy and challenges of collaboration, and how lyrics come to her -  including the story of how one of my very favourite songs of all time by any band was written, The Littlest Birds Sing the Prettiest Songs (hear an excerpt of this song in the episode) So many of us KNOW from a young age what we love to do, but so often it is overshadowed by our life circumstances, whether it's childhood trauma, abuse, neglect, unsupportive parents or simply not having anyone in our lives to see us and cheer us on, or as in Sam's case being so different from the people in her childhood home, that she grew up feeling like an alien in her own home. Sam's drive to find her father, to fill in the gaping hole his departure from her life left, would eventually take her on a winding adventure that would give rise to a deeply fulfilling musical career and the ability to fulfill the calling of her musical gifts. And thank goodness for all this because the music and lyrics that Sam has been able to allow to come through her have woven themselves into the tapestry of my own (and I am sure millions of others) lives. She had a strong drive to follow the lineage of creativity, to find out how the people who created music that spoke so strongly to her like Bob Dylan and Neil Young, were able to create those things.Sam was a founding member of the band The Be Good Tanyas whose debut album Blue Horse quickly earned them cult status as a beloved Alt Folk Band, it was named among 2002's top 50 releases by Q Magazine (UK) and the band would go on to release more albums cherished by fans all over the world. Their albums Chinatown and Hello Love were met with glowing more reviews including four stars from Rolling Stone. The band toured sold out concert halls across North America and Europe. Their music was featured in tv shows like Breaking Bad and The L word. My excitement was because here I was sitting down in real life, with the person who had brought music and lyrics into the world that had been on the soundtrack to many of the important moments of my life for the better part of 20 years from weddings and births of my children to lazy sunday brunches and sunny sunday afternoons cleaning the house, in some way Sam had been with me through it all and here she was sitting down with me to tell me the stories of how it all came to be. One of my favourite moments in the episode is when Sam tells the story of how the lyrics and melody for  The Littlest Birds Sing the Prettiest Songs came to her. This is one of my very favourite songs of all time (not just from the Be Good Tanyas repertoire) we got permission to share some of the song with you which you'll hear when we get to that part of the conversation. If this podcast is meaningful for you, if you get inspiration or encouragement or simply raises your spirits to listen to it, please sign up to make a small $5 or $10 contribution each month.

Like any adoring fan I may have gushed a bit and bravely asked her to join me in conversation on the show, hers was an immediate generous, warm and full-hearted YES. It took us a few months to line our schedules up and I am so pleased to be able to share this conversation and her music with you today. Here is my conversation with Sam Parton. In the weeks after this interview was recorded, Sam and I went on a walk through the sun dappled forest near my home. We talked more about life, creativity, and how much music industry has changed, with streaming services making it more difficult than ever before for musicians to make a living with their music. I wanted share some ways you can support Sam and her music. You can find those in the show notes on KateShepherdCreative.com To me Sam's story is a beautiful love story, the love of a little girl for her natural born gift, the love of a daughter for her long lost father, and the love of an artist for creativity itself. Sam gave me so many things to think about, I really appreciated what she said about putting down the projections of how we see others as being so much more prolific or professional than which can help us to be brave enough to take the risk of looking like we don't know what we are doing -  because from that place of lighthearted silliness magic usually happens. And as usual the word I pulled for today's show was perfectly perfect. It was inspiration. I got the truthbumps when she started talking about inspiration. Friends, I think she might be right. What if it IS the other way around? What if inspiration is waiting for us? What would be available to you if you were to approach your creative practice as though inspiration was already right there waiting for you, and to allow yourself to approach creating from a place of truly not knowing anything and waiting to be shown?Special Thanks to Sam Parton and Birthday Cake Media for permission to use The Littlest Birds Sing The Prettiest Songs in this episodeKate Shepherd: art | website | instagramMorning Moon Nature Jewelry | website |  instagramCreative Genius Podcast | website | instagramSam Parton: website | instagram | bandcampResources discussed in this episode:Bob DylanNeil YoungDolly PartonJudy GarlandPlease share the show with a friend and if you are moved to make a financial contribution to the production of this podcast, THANK YOU here is the link for our Patreon

In this episode Kate speaks with Kimberly Grigg, a wildly successful Interior Designer from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina who had figured out how to hack her creativity so that it was always ON. While this allowed her to build an empire for herself, it also literally almost killed her. She shares how that happened and what specific things she has done and continues to do to make sure that she remains healthy and able to express the gifts she was born to share with the world. If you are someone who struggles with stuff around control or if you have been feeling lately that something in your life is not quite right whether it is in your job or relationships or even with your creative practice  - I think you are especially going to get A LOT out of this episode.  I feel like there are so many of us who will benefit from what I think is somewhat of a cautionary tale from our guest Kimberly today. How significant the damage we can cause to ourselves and our lives when we stop listening to our inner voice. And how much more rich, enjoyable and purposeful our lives can become  when we do. If you could have been a fly on the wall during this interview you'd have seen me nodding vigorously throughout almost this whole conversation. When Kimberly described the gut wrenching fear and guilt she felt after she realized she had to shut down the part of her business that employed 20 people and generated all that income all because the joy was gone.. I felt that. I think we have all had to navigate getting out of least one situation that we created for ourselves through sometimes years of not listening to that quiet inner voice inside us. And even though it almost killed her, she found her way out of it by tuning in and dedicating herself to listening to it. And she was quick to admit that it is not always smooth sailing - sometimes she goes back to her old ways, but life is so much sweeter and happier and fuller now that she has gotten out of her own way and makes sure to always check in and ask herself, “Does this feel Joyful? If not then, why am I doing it? Things Kimberly and I talk about-How she learned to hack creativity so it was always on, and how it almost killed her-Being addicted to busy and how she made her way back from burnout-How to “burn down your life” when you have accidentally filled it with things you do not love-Learning to befriend creativity to have a sustainable relationship with it-Filling the cup - ways she does this that have improved her quality of life 1000 fold. -The simple routines that her doctor gave her to manage her stress and energy levels that she credits with saving her life-How bravery fits into creativity

School Sucks: Higher Education For Self-Liberation

The Essential School Sucks, #5 of 50 Theme One: The Real Problems With Public School Dr. Peter Gray was a research professor of psychology at Boston College, and author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life (https://amzn.to/3sJOtcu). Peter serves on the Organizing team for the Alliance of Self-Directed-Education. He also runs a blog on Psychology Today called Freedom to Learn, where he regularly explains and promotes self-directed education from a variety of angles. Today Peter and I discuss creativity and critical thinking - two skills we agree are left underdeveloped (or even damaged) by public school and college. On critical thinking, Peter has referenced studies and surveys that reveal about 50% of employers are dissatisfied with entry-level, college graduate employees (PayScale Inc.) and that college does little to improve higher level thinking (Academically Adrift: Limited Learning On College Campuses - 2011). On creativity, Peter wrote a piece called As Children's Freedom Has Declined, So Has Their Creativity. Peter informs us that there are actually quantitative studies, including the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, that show a marked decline in children's creative capacity since the 1980s. We discuss the causes of this decline in detail. We finish with a friendly disagreement (then agreement) on the educational merits of video games.

I hate Post-it notes. No, that's not true. I love them as a product. I use them nearly every day. What I do hate is how they are used as an example of innovation and creativity. To me, they set a terrible example of creative thinking. Tune in to learn some of the history of Post-it notes and why I don't think they teach us any good lessons about creativity.  In this episode you'll hear: Who invented Post-it notes and why. Why serendipitous products aren't that creative. How the inventors of Post-it notes struggled to get buy-in. When the product started to take off.

In this episode Kate speaks with New Zealand Visual Artist Phoebe Gander. Phoebe shares how difficult it was to live most of her life with undiagnosed ADHD, how for years she believed there was something deeply faulty about her and how that was the root cause of self-hatred and years of depression. When her own young son was diagnosed with ADHD, it led her to her own diagnoses which set her on a path of a deep healing and self acceptance which ultimately allowed her to step into the superpowers that ADHD had in store for her.  So many of us KNOW from a young age what we love and what makes us happy but in a misguided effort to be like everyone else we so often talk ourselves out of following those dreams. Phoebe's story is a reminder to me of how important it is that we commit to seeing each other's differences as gifts, not things to be scared of. So much suffering and trauma can be avoided if we are encouraged to lean into what makes us different, rather than trying to make it go away. One of my favourite moments in the episode is when Phoebe talks about her painting “No light, no shadow” and how for her it is a very clear example for her of what she feels creativity is trying to do through her; which is to remind herself and others that without darkness there can be no light. When I think about little Phoebe and ALL the little people everywhere who are trying so desperately to achieve all the same things in all the same ways as their peers despite the fact that that is simply not how life works - my heart gets a lump in its throat. I wish we could just wave a magic wand right now and let every single person past present and future know this:  the thing that makes you different IS the thing that makes YOU so special. I am roaring encouragement at you to not waste another moment: LEAN into this thing. Things Phoebe and I talk about-How so many of us KNOW from a young age what we want to do, but in a misguided effort to be like everyone else we talk ourselves out of following our dreams.-What it was like to have undiagnosed ADHD for much of her life (no explanation for why she was so “different” -What the gifts and challenges of ADHD have been - learning how to balance those. -What creativity really is and what it is trying to do through her -Why she calls herself an emerging artist (even though she is very accomplished) -How the two years she studied art and theater in university were the “best two years of her life: -The pressure to come up with a “reasonable” job when we are younger. -How she hit rock bottom and what borough her back -Post-natal depression, post natal anxiety-Whether you can be a “real” artist even if you can't draw (spoiler: the answer is yes) About Phoebe Gander:Phoebe Gander is a mixed media Artist, inspired by the beautiful ocean, skies and landscape where she lives with her family in Wainui Beach on the east coast of New Zealand. She predominantly uses acrylic paint and epoxy resin, as well as other fluid mediums such as acrylic ink and alcohol ink. She is self taught in these mediums however has a BA hons degree in printed surface design, which she gained studying at Falmouth College of Arts in the UK. She began creating art regularly again in 2018 and creates work using many layers, using paint and sometimes resin or other media to create depth and intrigue. ​Phoebe is fascinated by creating artworks that pull the viewer closer and drawn to creating abstract landscapes, full of textures and marks that tell a story. To her, there is something captivating about nature - it's a never ending source of inspiration, ever changing with the seasons, the weather... in a time where everything is fleeting, where people want to consume things so quickly, she creates artworks for you to stand still and consider a moment caught in time. Living just across the road from the beach and with a backdrop of hills behind her home studio she feels a strong connection to the landscape that surrounds her.​Originally from the UK, Phoebe has lived in New Zealand with her husband for the past 15 years where they've since had three children.Kate Shepherd: art | website | instagramMorning Moon Nature Jewelry | website |  instagramCreative Genius Podcast | website | instagramPhoebe Gander: website | facebook | instagramResources discussed in this episode:Alcohol inksResin Additude.mag diagnostic tool for addDr, Richard Barkley adhd researchPower of Now Eckhart TolleIf you or someone you know is suffering with Post-Natal or Depression of any kind, please reach out to your local health-care provider Please share the show with a friend and if you are moved to make a financial contribution to the production of this podcast, THANK YOU here is the link for our Patreon

And the tagline that I have on there that really defines my life is ‘a life made of choices instead of excuses'. I grew up in a traumatic childhood setting where my mother was a functioning alcoholic who would have fits of rage. And I know now as an adult that she was self-medicating herself. And I wouldn't have known that then as a kid.” Lisa then shares “My book talks about the severity of the horrid parts of my life. It also talks about the joy that my mother brought me. It was a hell of a roller coaster ride. She's the one that made me believe I could sing and that I could act and that I was funny.

Larry Hankin is perhaps the most recognized “that guy” character actor in Hollywood; having appeared in over 200 films and TV shows, you definitely know his face. His filmography reads like a who's who of Hollywood he has had roles in Laverne & Shirley, Friends, Escape from Alcatraz, Billy Madison, Home Alone, Seinfeld, Breaking Bad. He's also a writer and short film director (one of his films even earned him an Oscar nomination) and a painter. Larry shares that as a young child 70-odd years he had this huge creativity in him but it was knocked out of him by parents who wanted him to have a stable career as a doctor or lawyer. He shares the pressure of what it was like to try to shove down his own desire to be an artist to obey his parents wishes, Larry opens up about what having ADD, ADHD, OCD, & Dyslexia has been like for him and the gifts these things have given him along the way -  but my favourite moment comes towards the end of the show when he muses about what it was like to star alongside Clint Eastwood in Escape from Alcatraz. He muses about the importance of failure and how we have to come to accept it, because it is a part of learning. And at one point he gets esoteric about why we're here and why the cosmos let us in. Larry's life story comes across as a wild, lucky adventure - opening for Miles Davis, getting hired by Second City, Starring beside Clint Eastwood and even being nominated for an Oscar.  Through listening to Larry it becomes obvious very quickly that whether he wanted to or not Larry always placed Creativity in the Driver's seat of his life. I suspect it was because of this that he managed to manifest so many of these incredible experiences for himself. Larry and I talked about the importance of Acceptance (which happened to be the word I pulled for the show)  and acceptance is something that he embodies this so perfectly. He had these things inside him that he just had to follow. And he accepted that there was almost another person inside him running the show and that his job was just to do the things in the outside world to set that inside guy up. I was struck by Larry's unabashed loyalty to his own quiet inner voice. From the time he was so small he saw that the people around him didn't want him to live for himself and despite immense pressure to obey them, to make them happy, to fulfull his obligations as a SON, he never betrayed himself. He followed his heart and it led him on some incredible adventures. When he said, “I'm here to do what I'm here to do. That's why I was born and that's why the Cosmos let me in” I actually got the chills. That loyalty to his inner self, no matter what pressures were presenting themselves to him, is something I aspire to. He has some beautiful (and affordable!) artwork available from his website you'll find all the links and a FULL Transcript of the show in the show notes on Kate ShepherdCreative.com  If you have not already left a review please do that right now!
