Last week I was in Chicago where I taught a class about storytelling¬†and gave a lecture about “permission”¬†and it was an absolute pleasure to be there with that group. I left feeling energized and inspired and ready to take on the world! Since I’ve been back, I really have! I’ve been making more connections with charity organizations, setting to-do lists and marking everything off, and feeling generally productive yet calm. What a way to feel. Sometimes I forget that all…

This is a lesson I am constantly learning and understanding in many different ways, whether it be through something as serious as death or as silly as losing an image file. I tend to be very disorganized, something I am working on, but still continues to be an issue. I like to think of it as my overactive imagination taking hold and forcing me to do creative things instead of responsible…
