THE ROAD TO NO WHERE
THE ROAD TO NOW HERE

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.

TIP 2014
LOOK AT YOUR OWN REFLECTION
LIKE WHAT YOU SEE

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.

TIP 2014
BE PREPARED TO BE AMAZED BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

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

Thank you all for reading. Happy 2014. May we all met again here same place same time in 2014.
