Well hello August, wow that was faster than we wanted. Here on the West Coast, we are still experiencing triple degrees weather and lots of fires. This heat wave came early so at this point we all want cooler weather.
So this month we are going to take our #ArtistDayTrip to Long Beach, California to the Barbeque Festival. This is my first time for this event so I’m excited. Be sure to catch the broadcast stream on Periscope.tv/theartist_56.

Well if you’re seeing this we have made it to the halfway mark of 2018. So my question is “how is your year looking so far”. We have had plenty of eventful things happen since January some good, some fair and some downright discouraging. Yet we have made it to the mid-year.
Now that we have all come to this point how are we going to finish out the next six months? It is clear that we are not allowing the distractions, and detours stop us from moving forward.
So take a moment and breath in this next six months of your journey, and know that you are on the right path even with all the detours. It’s a journey, not a destination, continue to move forward one paint brush, one camera shot, one dance, on a completed book at a time because the world is waiting for us and our gifts.
Thank you so much for all who have followed me from day one on this journey, thank you for liking and sharing the post, for coming to the broadcast, and just for being a support factor alone the way.
June is always exciting, the festivals start so there will be plenty of #ArtistDayTrips to explore. You can find us on most platforms and you can catch our broadcast on #Anchor and #Periscope.tv.
