Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Hope you all have a healthy, blessed New Year. My California trip was great, the weather wasn't hot or cold, just perfect 60/70 degrees like early spring days in NY. It came to an end when I returned back to NY where the cold air slapped me to reality. These pics were taken at Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade in Cali, I was strolling with my Jamba Juice in hand and noticed all these cool art around me. The painting on top (Lady of soul in heels) is my first art created for 2008.

Well, it's time to set some goals which I made a wish list since November. I don't literally write a list on paper, normally it's in my head and I keep it at 5. Two years ago I had 10 on the list and was greatly disappointed at myself and since then I decided to keep it simple.

So, what are your goals for 2008? What do you plan to accomplish?

I have faith and confidence that you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams. I pray that you are blessed in abundance because you are deserving beyond measure.

It's been great getting to know you in 07 and I hope that 08 will have us meet in person. You've been a great inspiration to me.

Welcome back! I'm happy you had a good trip. Here we are in '08 looking forward to growth and good times. Like you, I keep things in my head and mostly want to practice more compassion for myself and others, get a new job, travel and learn to enjoy just being....

Joy and inspiring for the new year!!
