And the most wonderful quote:

“Don’t ask what the world needs.
Ask what makes you come alive and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

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.

    What fun, fun stuff. I heard Rosie O’Donnell talking about Mad Hot Ballroom and I’ve been wanting to see it ever since. Thanks for these cool links.

    That wonderful quote is making the rounds on the internet – I have “come alive!” as my screen saver :~)

    Lovely links! It was so fun going thru these. A flower brooch from Omondieu! is now on my wishlist…so gorgeous. I am anticipating Mad Hot Ballroom as well. Thanks so much…

    Indeed the world does need people who have come alive.

    I love the flower rings. I wonder if I’d have the guts to prance around in one all day! I need guts. 🙂

    Did you know there’s another hotel like that, but bigger, and much closer? The Madonna Inn, in San Luis Obispo. You can tour the rooms online at http://www.madonnainn.com.

    I love your large photo at the top; the flower on the right looks shy. To me it seems she is blushing and turning her face away …

    Andrea, that photo is absolutely breathtaking. It almost looks like a painting. Positively gorgeous!

    Erk. A hard day at work, but a trip to superhero land did indeed cheer me up. Oh – such an inspiration. Made remember that creative seed. And those flowers are the best design of all.
    AND – after the last blog I too asked for a inspiring dream, and I had the most vivid dream. When I half woke up I asked what the message was…. and the answer came…. there are other realitys then this one. And THAT is helping me through a rough patch.
