both of us, I
and the poppy.”
– Issa

or in this case, the tulip.

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.

    Lovely photo! I adore the soft focus and the bright colors of the tulip. You have such a talent for seeing the ordinary and the beautiful through your lens. It all makes me feel very “Spring-like”. 🙂

    the other night, i went grocery shopping and, after much deliberation, decided to buy a bouquet of tulips instead of something PRACTICAL. as a result, i decided to dress up the usually bare kitchen table with a tablecloth and runner to match the tulips. and now, every moment in my kitchen is that much happier. what a difference of perspective flowers can bring!

    Ahh…to be somewhere that actually HAS a Spring…delightful picture…
    In Eastern Canada…we have winter…some more winter…then a few weeks of mud (one might call that Spring)…and BOOM…summer…Fall is slightly longer with a few weeks of chilly wind…then BOOM….winter!
    I dream of the days of tulips and lilys. I’ve planted tulips for the 3rd year in a row…I am fervently praying that this is the year that they’ll decide to bloom!
    thanks for the Spring!

    Funny, huh? How the simplest of statements say the most?
    I’ll be sending in an essay for a free bike, and a co-worker suggested that I ought to say I’m a superhero, and I immediately thought of you…

    Here in NYC it’s almost spring! You can’t feel it yet, but you can almost smell it in the air. Yay, thanks for the reminder!!
