What Storms Teach Us. September 2018

Its that time of year where the East coast is getting slammed with hurricanes and rain.  As I was watching everyone preparing for #Florence it brought to mind every storm teaches us to go to higher ground.  They require us to leave where we are and move to higher ground. They change our perspective about life and they cause us to reexamine our reason for being on the planet.

Some people move to higher ground and find the safety and resources some dont move to higher ground when advised to and become trapped in the devastation of the storm.  All are affected but the out comes differ.

So take heed to the storms in life for they just might be showing you the next level your to go to.

August Calendar: #ArtistDayTrip

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.
