still life and dust pan by me
Dear Lady or Man,
I am Jill's child-spirit. She is NAPPING so I am going to have to do the newsletter.  HA HA. That is funny because... well, I'm a kid and things are more funnier to us than they are to you big people. HA HA again. Maybe you should "kid-down" a bit. I just made that up.
Here's the Muse Flash .
There are some very very very serious things I need to talk about, so listen up.  oops... Excuse me!!! HA HA
This just in: June is supposed to be about fun. 
Why? Because fun and creativity have an important common connection called play. Many of the principles of creative thought involve playing with ideas... making associations, connections, allowing for the absurd, allowing for the freedom to invite in anything - because that's when genius takes place. We can keep our brains young, creative, and vital if we learn to play more. Like what are 15 things you think of when you see a beach ball? Playfully  list them. That's some creative thinking. If you got stuck on #2, you need work.. 
Join me Thursday, June 3 at 5 pm pacific, 6 pm mountain, 7 pm central, 8 eastern for how we Agelessness by Staying a KidSign up for the call.
Like George Bernard Shaw said, "We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing." 
The Muse is In Writing Club put on their fourth grade minds last week, and revisited a time when wonder was still alive... we can do that even as adults! Play with this yourself and feel free to share your responses in the comment section.
Thank you very sexy. I mean very much. Ha ha.

Next Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching Certification Training
Learn to work one on one to facilitate creative joy and busting through procrastination, overwhelm, perfectionism, self-sabotage, difficulty focusing and finding time (including your own) .
"What reminds the magic of the mind, how it retrieves this information and connects it and presents it is perhaps more mysterious than mystical. That being said, if there is something I love in the Kaizen-Muse approach it's the ability to honor the non-rational, the illogical, the unpredictable, the imperfect, the shadow, and non-linear workings of creativity.
This approach is anchored in wonder and inspires awe which is perhaps why I love it so much even though I'm still at the very beginning of my learning journey.To you and Kaizen-Muse, Jill!"  ~Jasmine from Paris

Having a Ball, Wish You Were Here

Just a warning-
Be careful who you give your palm address to. I went to have my palm read and  the palm reader took a long time because she had to wade through all the spam on my hand. 
Slurls: Web addresses normally created when businesses did not consider the impact of removing spaces from their name. Lookie
Talking in "brass"
We are a funny species. There's so much about us to laugh about. Cry about too... but for now, let's laugh. It's healthy, it lends perspective, it frees our energy to operate at a place where we are better able to help what there is to cry about. If we are crying all the time, we're not much good to anyone except the plants we are watering with our tears.
Thanks for reading,
Have an a-musing June.
