Who are yoU? And TMI about me


I mean Really, who are you. What do you like to do? What are your natural skills? Were you born with a guitar in one hand and a mic in the other? Who are yoU?


I cover my head in the winter and I love to read.


As for me, I am really really good at getting stuff done. No matter what. As children, we all knew our parents view on driving their cars. My folks worked long and hard for their vehicles & there was no way they were going to let one of the four of us crash one of their cars. So at sixteen, I took matters into my own hands ... got myself a job (which my folks drove me to) and bought my first car a month after my eighteenth birthday, three months before my high school graduation.

I continued to work for a mass retailer in the camera department to pay for design school, although it was so pricey, I had to wait a year after High School before I could actually attend. I graduated in 1985 with a 3.5 GPA.


While working full time, little ole me decided to buy & renovate my first home. How did I do this? By cleaning office buildings at night.


A big dreamer, but even A bigger doer.  Yet, with the loss of  my parents to remind me of who I really am, I almost forgot.


This spot, this little space on this World Wide Web ... has helped me to clear the dust, while reminding me of my own personal greatness.


What about yoU, who are yoU really?

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. 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. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
