Purple Bird Studio

Did you ever get ideas so fast you can't write them down fast enough?  Did you ever get so excited you thought might explode?  Well.  What fun!  Synchronicity, wavelength theory, serendipity do dah!  I thought I might be losing it lately, when everything thing I say is a line from a song.  I reply to people by singing songs!  This morning I woke at 3 a.m. wide awake, again.  But far from being grumbly about it, I literally leapt from the bed!  I heard my son grumbling the question, "Is it time to get up?" (He hates to miss the bus!)  "Nope, just God talking to me, so I'm getting up and taking notes!"  I had 3 different kinds of chicken cooking by 5:15!  I had taken 6 pages of notes and had to just put down the pen and paper!  If you have never had this happen, I'd like to recommend a step to take to get here!

Start out by making a gratitude journal.  Every day write down 10 things you are grateful for and why.  Share it with a friend.  It didn't take but a day or two before I was literally buzzing.  I realized that I grumble from sun up to sun down about the one thing I think I need in order to be happy that day... the one thing I don't have!  So I'm always focused on the lack in my life.  I love the quote that says blessed is the one who has, for that one will be given even more, the converse is true too, the one who has not loses the enjoyment of what that one has.  So, for today, for right now, think about what you have to be grateful for, and keep thinking on that... but only if you want to buzz, and be awakened full of life at 3 am! 

And, what does all that have to do with "Purple Bird Studio?"  My son, who takes after me (did you know there is a gene for creativity?), and loves to create company names, logos, slogans, I know... shoulda been in advertising, (NOT), came up with PB a few years ago.  Now he has his own youtube channels under another name, complete with linking facebook pages (and he's helping me do the same thing here!)... the younger generation doesn't need a class in media marketing, they are writing the book!  So, I decided, without his permission (yet) to use the first one he created as "our" production company!  And the videos are just a few of those ideas that came to me this morning.  More on this later, go get your own ideas!

Wishing you a very creative day!

The Genesis - The Beginning of Whole-Hearted Art

I want to share with you what I am learning about peace and happiness. 

These two words are used to the point of having no meaning, and yet, they are what we yearn for in the deepest parts of our beings.  On a good day, I am so much further along the path than I have ever been... and, what good is that, if I can't share it with you?  I hope you will join me on the journey, to becoming who we came here to be, together, having loads of fun along the way. 

You are welcome here.  You are wanted.  You are loved.  I don't have to know everything about you to love you.  I know the single most important thing I need to know:  You want to be loved.  You deserve to be loved.  You ARE loved.  I am not perfect, and neither are you, AND, we don't have to be in order to be loved. 

We will actually feel the love that is here, as we share our fears, flaws and mistakes.  "Real Love," by Dr. Greg Baer ( has been the major turning point in my life, and I know it can be in yours, too.  Real Love is the essence of what we will be sharing here. 

Stay tuned as I get this website and this Project underway.  I have a lot to learn about putting this all together, let's do it, all-together!  I will be sharing, through videos, pictures, stories, lessons and workshops (art, movement, music, creative writing), all of me and my journey in hopes we can support each other as we go along!
