Flops, Failures and Reframes
A Day in June in the Year That Has a 12 at the End of it

Our shortened attention spans make us run from newsletters that are solid walls of text these days. This one is no exception, unless you're a die-hard Muse Flash reader, (in which case, I am pausing in this moment, to do an interpretive dance of appreciation ..../#/[video unavailable] Some of you have been with me since 2005, thank you sincerely).
So I'm going to convey my message simply to appease those with short attention sp...
Foliage Tip for June:
  • You may be tempted to park your car underneath a Jacaranda tree that's dropping it's petals.
  • You may think driving away with a farfare of the purple flying over your windshield will be a swoosh of delicately magical delight. ABSTAIN. Or be stained.
  • Jacaranda blossoms have sap that stick to your windshield with a mind-bogglingly relentless strength that's undetered even after two drives through a car wash while listening to The Doors.
  • Your view will be stained, your poetic intention thwarted, and you will curse trees who really deserve unblemished adoration - because THEY BLOOM IN RADIANT PURPLE BLOSSOMS, for God's sake! (Behold  - just don't park under them).
Creative Metafodder Sapped From the Above:
  • Don't be distracted from the road by the illusions around you. Believe in yourself from the inside out.
  • Some things are worth sticking to, others not so much. You know true friends, they stick together even if they drive each other crazy once in awhile. Find friends that stick with you and make you laugh. Let the other ones fly over your windshield (metaphorically). 
  • Wear comfortable shoes. (Where'd that come from? Random associations are allowed in the creative process. Have a few right now: maple syrup, Spruce, wood you, could you? Allow yourself to connect to something that just shows up and doesn't necessary fit the theme.  Chances are it's your subconscious providing some juicy stuff, take notes - the subconcious is rich with genius).
  • Creativity and Craziness originate from the same place: the letters "Cr."  Don't be afraid to be a little bit of both in the name of living this life to its fullest - You're not here forever. Take your car and run over your fears and hesitations. Floor it!
Okay.. I got carried away with text. Forgive me. If you're still reading, there's a free PDF here for you to download and print out. It's your reward. The trees sent it so, walnut?
Happy June,
