Wild Wild Life
Let's talk grasshoppers and ants for a minute.
The proverbial grasshopper plays in the sun, doesn't think much about tomorrow, is present and maybe ill-prepared for calamity. The ant, on the other hand, is all about storing for a rainy day, work work working - no play, and making sure every future possibility is covered. I've spent my entire life as an ant. And I thought that was because, well, I was an ant at heart.
But recently (thank you pandemic for keeping me less busy and giving me time to think!) I've uncovered the very real possibility that my ant-ness was in response to a long history of situations that left me holding the responsibility bag and therefore ant-ness was required. So I've decided to give my inner grasshopper an open door. And whoa. It. might just be the key to everything. Less anxiety, less exhaustion, better sleep, MORE JOY and the ability to make and savor deeper connections with humans and the world around me.
And so I might be late now and again. Or miss a deadline. Or have nothing in the refrigerator. But on the other hand, I'm wearing-a fur pajamas, I ride a hot potato. It's tickling my fancy. Want to join me?

Dotty! I've got an extra hot potato just for you. :). It was whimsy week in the studio preparing for an auction....but this one just wanted to be seriously fantastical, so I saved her for here. Doors opening - not sure if things are getting out or in or both? ha ha!

Yes, please. Put my name on the sign-up list (the break the mold list, not the insect list). Hey, your wild life guy is channeling HellBoy, one of my faves!
