Getting Your Hands Dirty

It’s so much more fun to actually do things rather than just be an observer in life

                 participating

                getting your hands dirty

only to find that you love the smell and the feel of the dirt under your fingernails

Getting Myself Out There

The other day I spoke about the need to get myself out there as a writer, illustrator, and blogger.

HOW to get myself out there IS the trick.  It takes a certain kind of outflow and an inflow in my opinion.  It takes a knowingness and the correct technology to do so. It is done by knowing how to go about writing, publishing, marketing and getting my books sold all over the world.  It is connecting with people all over the world.  Finding this holds true for me, there are social media outlets and also the face to face contacts made each day.  It is being willing and desiring of community within myself, others within my family, the groups I belong to, the flora and fauna in my life and the world.  It goes beyond that-to caring for the earth physically and spiritually.  It is a commitment made each day fulfilling my hopes and dreams for a better world.  It is done by communication, understanding and tolerance.

The message I’m here to bring is about community and for me and you to be a part of that community here where I live and in the world at large.  I believe all of us have that yearning deep inside-to belong, to be understood, and to fulfill our purpose for living.  To be alive, aware, responsible conscious beings.

Thank you for allowing me to be me and I’d love to hear from you as well.

Shades of Ability

Since I just published a book on the attributes and potentialities of the human spirit, then I should know what ability means or what it means to be able.  Right?

Sure.  🙂

The ability or inability to do something lies in, perhaps, the very way we go about doing something.  If, for example, I want to paint a picture and do not know what a color, hue or a canvas means or what it means to use shading, or other such art terms, then my painting will reflect it to that degree.  The doingness is dependent upon the understanding of art terms.  The more I know about a subject, its terms and definitions, etc, then the more able I am.  There is an understanding, that with practice and skill, I am able to paint a picture or a better picture.  Maybe one that draws the attention of others.  My art then would communicate something to the audience, like you.

That goes with the marketing of books, too.  If I don’t have a clue to what goes into the marketing of my book, then that makes me less able.   It is a learning process, no doubt.

I have some more homework then, don’t I?  How to do more promotion and on my list of to-dos.  Some expert help has been solicited.  Thanks Rick Lite!

In the meantime, won’t you check out the newest arrival of I AM SPIRIT?

Hope to hear your thoughts, comments or questions.
