Macchiato’s technicolor cousin by the talented Melissa Ecker

The new men’s bathroom at the Sofitel in Queenstown, NZ has life size photos of models above the urinals monitoring the manhood of the guests.

Another beauty of a poem by my friend Maya Stein:


How much, some days, you just want to bury your head
under the duvet, that great billowy cloud
of total, beautiful anonymity. Imagining
you could take breakfast there, and the pile of mail to go through,
your backlog of magazines.
Inches away, on their last morning, the tulips
are waking up to the very edge of themselves,
unwrapping their petals shamelessly against the sun,
bending toward the light in great, voluptuous bursts
of orange.

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.



  1. Marilyn

    Maya’s poems consistently KNOCK ME OUT. She needs to publish them…

  2. Julia

    Dreamy photo…. Love it! Maya’s poems are so fabulous. Does she have a collection out in print? Great post today. 🙂

  3. a guest from boston

    I believe that Maya has two self-published books, non?

  9. Tracy

    I went to my computer, needing to be re-charged. To be inspired to BE more, at this very moment…and knew to go right to you Andrea! {For my dose of inspiration, you are so dependable!} This poem is so beautiful and applicable for today…Thanks for the tweak.

    I really enjoy your photographs! I especially like the one of you running on the beach. How did you get the wonderful black border around it? I think that makes the image so beautiful. Just curious. Thanks

    Andrea – your photos are getting more and more amazing! I know you’re still using your Rebel, but are you now also using various lenses? This shot and your coffee shot from a few posts back are so full of detail!

    Gorgeous hair! I love it when hair looks like a work of art.
    Somehow I don’t believe that my frizzy fro has the capability to ever look that smooth and molded to perfection! 🙂

  14. Jennifer

    I’ve decided that everyone has some sort of talent, even if you’re like me and haven’t discovered it yet. I always love the creativity you bring to your website, and so does everyone that reads it!! The poem is perfect, and I just adore all of your photos!!
