I am sooooo grateful for such awesome friends in Seattle! The land of a million opportunities to help each other and also pimp your talents, (for good).
The Hummingbird is hosting all my Seattle artworks the weekend of Basphite’s show. Come over and say hey, that’s another rad music spot in Columbia City.
Glad I’m in Seattle. Cascadea!! and it would be pretty uninteresting without all my beautiful friends here <3 <3 <3
It’s good to forgive in the city too. Everyday. 10,000 times, it makes you happier, and feel less anxiety seems like to me, and that means more time being creative<3
I joined a new app to find collaborators in Cascadia. I’ll report about how good it works for me and vice versa, called Shapr.
Also joined a team to work on an app/site/media for Taming Bigfoot, a contest in the Seattle area (total leading city in prototyping/activating the clean energy movement). My bandmate & I were talking on the bus the other day, if you want to help things be better, in this case healthier environment, go find the others who are already doing that and help them… et voila.
We’re on our way & we got that fire. It’s more than a start, it’s a fire!
Rise Up! Action Band played at the 350 Seattle fundraising shindig last night. It was a blast, if you are into helping the planet transition to clean energy, water, food, & fuel, aire like I am go check out 350 in your area & get on board they/we are making good waves. Keep the Oil in the Soil!!
And I LOVE THIS FLUTE!

This freelancer has been in a new bustling city for 5 months now and a healthy routine has emerged yeahyah, and that includes daily morning meditation and from there has emerged a mindfulness– that feels divine.
From being more mindful I can see habits I have that are taking away from success at least the way I want to experience it, which is being in the creative zone for one thing, or just with a good workflow on. This feels splendid. So one of my new habits is to really hype myself to myself for all I’m accomplishing, and take my time about it, instead of riding myself so hard and just take it easy in this world (: You know?
As for now I can see that I can be even soooo much more grateful, just so grateful– AND SEE WHAT’S GOOD, for what I’ve got going on any given day and love on that. And so accepting of others and kind/patient and treat myself that same way. And be really brave but easy going about it. Always up to vibe with other humans thru the experience of anything we are trying to get done, and appreciate that too.
Our habits create our destiny and our daily joy in life and I have some awesome neccesary ones for a thriving freelancer that I have started, and I am running with them, for the next 96 days no matter what, I am committed to my killer freelancer habits. Then, after 96 days they will be my habits because that’s how it works, after 30 days something you do on a daily basis becomes your new way. One of my new habits is meditation & yoga, –SUN SALUTATIONS ROCK– it’s helping me work way more relaxed and as a creative, we really need that. Take care of yourselves everyone. We’re all in this together after all. Peace.
**And I haven’t been busking every day like I said, I was, but my routine changed, but I have been practicing guitar and singing everyday so no doubt that’s one of the habits that is feeling so damn good. And I plan to get back out there to Westlake again soon and get back on the busking train, tis the season.
