DARE TO BE WILD! FREE ISSUE
Becoming Your Inner Vision ... SAYING YES!
INNER VISIONING . . .
We are creative beings. Some of us are compelled to express this creativity without hesitation. Some of us feel that something is "whispering" to us, "come, you have riches inside you and the world needs you to share them." Do we dare to follow this? Others sense a longing or a pulling but it may be mixed with an uncertainty of how to express or what wants to be expressed through us.
Listening to your inner voices filled with desires, dreams and goals . . . these are the voices of your Soul, inviting you to dare to live your dreams. This is the exploration for Volume 1, the first Month's Topic.
Grant and Suzanne both experience that to create is aliveness and connection, to create is Love expressed, to create is sharing their individual uniqueness to the world. In this process, Grant and Suzanne found it continually takes courage, risks, stillness, openness, humility, and a willingness to say a resounding Yes! So, in honor of creativity and in the spirit of sharing about their own personal journeys Grant and Suzanne speak personally about what inspires them to stay connected to their creativity and how they share it with the world.

A courageous and generous mid twentieth century abstract painter.

"I will not change an error if it feels right, for the error is more human than perfection. I do not seek answers. I haven’t named this work nor thought where it would go.
