6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

A peom to my Toddler Joslyn

I thought of recording you tonight,
your tantrum and cries so loud.
So you could see in later years,
the way you used to pout.

The little things we fight over,
are simple now and then
But lessons learned in fighting,
are important just the same.

Like how we don't always get what we want,
but always what we need.
Because God loves us so much,
to tell us no, even when we pleed.

And how we need to stop and listen,
to those who know what's best.
Because God puts others in our lives,
to help us pass life's tests.

And how we need to be nice
and polite to others who pass by.
Because God loves us all the same
and is sad when we make others cry.

So remember when we disagree
that mom and dad love you still.
And we always want whats best for you,
so fight for you we will!
