There's Always A Way to Make Life Better - Philips: A little more action

I happened upon this video by accident, and because I'm always a sucker for stories about people going after their dream, I had to share!  P.S., And don't you love that tag line:  "There's always a way to make life better."  Makes you feel like you could do anything!

Trader Joe's, A Cute Checkout Boy, Humiliation, and a Raspberry Tart

So convinced that he had made a fool of himself with his inane banter in front of the new checkout boy, Greg ate his entire Trader Joe's raspberry tart in humiliation as soon as he got home.

Chastised Charles and His Paper Hats

During school, Charles was chastised for constantly constructing paper airplanes and hats. Nonetheless, he could not stop, and he continued in obscurity with his paper-folding ways. That was until a head designer for Issey Miyake saw the genius in his origami at a small fair, hired him on the spot, and forever changed his shame into worldwide fame.

I posted this before, but on the occasion of his 73rd birthday, I had to put my watercolor and ink painting of Robert De Niro out there one more time. (-:

Sucre- Crazy [Loner EP]

I have been so obsessed with this song that I thought I should share it with the rest of you.  Listen especially at 2:11 forward.  Stacy King's vocals just float over the scale, and I love the way her voice breaks over the word "how" at 2:20.  Just beautifully powerful.  P.S. the true name of the group is Sucré.  You can find also find Stacy King's lifestyle blog on Instagram at @sucremusic and her lifestyle website is

Sheila Had Become A Wine Head

Sheila quickly brought her hand to her face, desperately trying to block her eyes from the free grocery store wine samples. She suspected she was becoming a wine head.

Muhammad Ali

When I first heard Muhammad Ali had passed, I drew a quick pencil sketch of him.  I wanted to reflect his intelligence and sense of humor which I thought were just as brilliant as his boxing.

I started...and then I stopped. I was intimidated by the task and thought I could not do him justice.  Finally yesterday, July 31st, I thought, don't let another month pass without paying tribute to him.  So, I dug deep and finished his portrait.  I hope you like him.

 Ali--the quick sketch where he lingered for nearly 2 months.
