SEASON’S GREETINGS FROM TIGER LILY’S
In the lyrics of the Road To No Where from the Talking Heads, there’s a city on the mind. My road is not a street with no name, it is a trail near my home. It is the one less traveled. Henry David Thoreau also says on Walden:
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” ― Henry David Thoreau.
Thoreau understood life goes on. It is prepetually in motion. The earth spins on axis, There is something huge to be said for that. Look for the color in the mundane. .
Tips for 2014:
1.Find a Center Point.
2. Live clearly. See things newly and differently.

The end of the year is all about the reflection. It is the water, life’s blood and the looking glass. You have to look back and be proud and happy about the course of events that unfolded for you in 2013. The river runs deep and layers upon layers are built in years. The year was a captured in furniture, friends, television opportunities, magazine publications, blog posts, lecture series, art and a celebration of design.
I cooked, I became an amateur photographer and I read. There’s a note in the woods near where I live that expains the story behind those brillant red berries. It turns out they are poisonous. In the Grimm’s fairytale Snow White, she eats a bad apple. It is as simple as that. Disney’s imagination takes that idea to market and its no wonder we all can conjure up the image of a wicked witch as her own mirror image reflecting, if she is fair. I don’t thing now’s the moment for a good verse evil speech, but I will leave you with one quote as I always do. It is an idea really, to look deeply inside and be your best self.
“Prepare to be amazed beyond all expectations. After all it is what I do“–Magic Mirror, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
