A friend of mine told me that he once dreamed an entire day of the third grade. When he got to school, he knew how each moment would happen. Every action, every word, was like a script the world was acting out for him, one that he had already glimpsed. The blocking, the lines, it was all there. Unfolding.

The teachers happened to give a schoolwide aptitude test that day and because he had already dreamed the day, he knew the pattern of correct responses on the test sheet. He got a perfect score without ever reading the questions.

They called him into the principal’s office.

“Are you bored in class?” they asked.

“No, not really,” he responded.

They smiled (thinking they had a genius on their hands) and promptly skipped him to the fourth grade.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    I always like to see photographs that partners take of partners. I think they look in the camera a much different way than if someone else were shooting. You can see it in his eyes.
