“There was a single blue line of crayon drawn across every wall in the house. What does it mean? I said. A pirate needs the sight of the sea, he said & then he pulled his eye patch down & turned and sailed away.”
– Brian Andreas, Storypeople

Btw, Ben is doing great! 🙂

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.

    He looks great… such a joyFULL boy.
    I loved your post about remembering the BEST part of the day… I tried it with my grumpy husband. He started the conversation with “you’re not even gonna believe the crappy day, blah, blah blah.” I let him go on and on and then asked him the question, “..and what was the best part of your day?” He paused, and literally his voice changed and I could hear the smile on his face as he spoke his answer!
    Genius I tell ya!!

    Some time ago, I really needed to buy a good house for my firm but I did not earn enough money and couldn’t order anything. Thank God my colleague suggested to take the loans from reliable bank. Thence, I did so and used to be happy with my sba loan.

    Every one admits that humen’s life seems to be very expensive, however people require cash for different issues and not every one earns enough cash. So to get fast personal loans and just sba loan will be a right way out.

Courage is contagious.
