How much is art worth? Does art matter?
Is art really worth what some people pay for it? Isn’t the art world a bit bonkers? What’s really behind the scenes. How does an artist value his work and set a price for selling? Good or great work is a scarcity and is something that is important to culture society and some individuals. My little rant about a recommendation for how to set prices for artwork.

A great secret for being a loving and effective parent.
I have taken up rollerblading. I was practicing at the schoolyard and a mother came with a little child who is learning to ride a bike. The little boy and I had something in common that’s very important. How can you help someone learn something new? How can you be a supportive parent?

Often logic doesn’t rain and we just want to do something because we do. A simple strategy to double check those decisions. See through other peoples eyes and accept it is the way forward.

How being self-centered will make the world better.
I found myself in my daughters high school office trying to understand why there was no creative writing elective class offered. When we focus on our own creative desires is that selfish and harmful to ourselves in the world? Or does it make the world a better place for all?

Eliminating some words can help see with a fresh eye
The history of ego and other similar terms from modern psychiatry frames how we think about the mind. What if we eliminate those terms and look from a different angle to see what’s possible?

Get your message across without eyes glazing over
I got a deeper insight into how to talk with customers from chatting with a cosmetic representative in the store. How can we avoid the technical jargon and confuse people? How to share a message that’s important for others to hear. Get your message across, without eyes glazing over.

A different view on failure to help get things done.
Fear of failure stops us. How can we reframe failure in our experiences to allow us to move forward and see the options before us. Try is a weak word. what other approach might want to use to make progress and succeed.

So that approach isn’t working? Flip it!
I just had and insight About removing the tentative fear of beginning the painting on a white canvas. There’s a principal here that applies to desire and being polled versus fears and moving away from something.

Dancing to the African drums
A taste of the live drumming at my Friday night dance class. A few years ago as I was walking by the second floor studio, I heard drums like these resonating into the street. I climbed the stairs to see what was happening and saw the dancers and drummers in action. A few weeks later I returned for my first class.
