Course Corrections – Embrace the Unexpected

I am an avid trail runner. One of my favorite trails is in Napa at the Skyline Wilderness Park.  I savor this run as it challenges me while it surrounds me in pristine nature. As I run, I get the opportunity to share the trails with a diverse variety of animals: deer, wild turkeys, coyotes and wild pigs, to name a few.  On this occasion, as I took to the trails, I noticed a significant number of horses and riders gathered on the grounds leading to the trails. I soon discovered that...

Some of it is a conditioned response from having lived in fearful situations.  I recently shared some of my fear resources with friends, clients and colleagues who were experiencing fear.  Given the relevance of the topic, I decided to create a blog post or two to share these resources with my broader community.  As I...

New Year Angel – The First Painting of the New Year

It was time to get creative.  I haven’t played in creativity or gotten my hands covered in paint in far too long.  I remedied this last weekend. One of my favorite artists is Tamara LaPorte.  She creates stylized, whimsy ladies and I simply love her style.  I’ve taken many online courses from her over the years.  One of her courses is Lifebook 2019.  Lifebook provides a new online art lesson each week for a year, each lesson taught by either Tam or a...
