Moxie Art Supply & Studio School

First order of business today was rejection. 

Or, so I thought. 

I worked up enough courage & nerve to approach a local retail store about buying a few of my products today. Then, with my business cards, just barely out of my coat pocket. I got the LOOK, you know the LOOK ... the I'm so busy unpacking this box look ... to stop & deal with the likes of you LOOK. Well, I'm not the one. Worked in retail for too many long years to take the LOOK ... so I politely asked for more information & a pen. You know I had a pen in my pocket ... I just needed to see some movement from this clerk.

Then, desperate to find something new, something FRESH ... I kept driving ... till I stumbled upon Moxie Art Supply & Studio School.

The sight of slick new tubes of paint, canvas by the yard & by the board gave
this rejected soul a whole new reason to smile.

Rejection is just a side step in the journey ... then it's back to the path!

Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite.
