So this is who I am – a writer that paints, a painter that writes…

Step by step.

Today is one of those days…one of those days when you find yourself in the middle of doing something you never thought you could do. And yet, you’re doing it.

I have never been a big picture person. Step by step. Piece by piece.

When I used to work the New York Gift show, I, joyfully would come home with a stack of orders to fill. It was thrilling, until the reality set it that I actually had to make each piece of art. Box each piece. Each order. Slide down a staircase. Load the car. Drive to to Fed Ex, or UPS, or the post office. Over and over. And I took it all very seriously. I wanted to give them the best products in the most efficient way. I made promises and I was going to keep them. If I looked at the stack as a whole, I could almost make myself throw-up. So I took it one order at a time. Just complete this one. Do your best and then move on. I did it. For decades.

At this moment, I sit alone at the airport in Marseille. Next flight Amsterdam. First order to fill. I can do this. Bit by bit. Step by step. Promises have been made, and I will keep them. I will do my very best. My heart will lead the way.
