Finding Happiness in the Small Things in your Life
What better way to start the year than by looking ahead, with expectation and trepidation, at what the year ahead might bring?
By now, on the second day of the year, if you are like me, you either have already broken one of your resolutions, or you are already beyond making resolutions, knowing that you will be breaking them.
Well, guess what? If you start adding up when you DID follow the resolution rather than when you broke it, you’ll find your glass filling up rather than emptying – et voilà! before you know it, your glass is half-full. Make sure the glass is small too; you can always add a second one when the first one is full!
So now, here is what I am wishing for all this year:
Finding happiness in the small things means looking at what you have with a new eye; looking harder at what is around you; looking differently at what is given to you.
- Thinking outside the box is a great idea, as long as you don’t neglect what’s inside the box and don’t forget the box too. Always remember that as a kid, it was the box you loved the most…for its potential: you’ll never be bored.
- Keep teaching… you never know what you might learn!
- Keep your failures… one day they might bloom!
- About reading advice and “inspirational” note: remember that the writer is usually giving advice suitable for him/herself. In most cases, it won’t apply to you…
Now, if you came to this page wanting to know when the next art class would be, bear with me while I redraw the schedule within the next few days, and the classes will be ready to start again soon. Whatever you do this year, make sure you JUST KEEP DRAWING and you can be sure the juices will keep flowing!

Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
A great thank you to all of you, students, anonymous followers, random passer-bys, friendly commentators, for helping keep this page going by stopping by and sending friendly comments once in a while! The New Year promises some surprises ahead, which I will not reveal yet…
In the meantime, please enjoy my cheeky, green greetings using “optical inks”. Please follow the instructions carefully and ask a child if you aren’t sure… they will know!
