i had the most wonderful interaction today with a new shop owner i'll be working with.
i can tell already that we're gonna be a great team.
she wrote and asked a question about how things work,
i answered from my heart with willingness to work with her in any way i could.
and she replied with the same spirit.
you wouldn't think that would be that unusual,
but to get it back to the beautiful degree i got it today,
it is unusual - and - well, it just made my heart swell with happiness.
bone sigh arts is a business, yes.
i need/want it to support myself, yes.
but it's so much more than that.
i love what i do.
i believe in what i do.
and working with heart is completely part of it.
it's not always easy to do.
and my gosh, tons of people offer up tons of challenges to that path...
and when someone comes along and says they feel the same,
and they want to dance the journey with you -
well, it's a darn treat.
she enclosed a steve jobs quote with one of her emails,
and i knew that here is someone i can dance with.
it's made my whole day happy.
wanted to post the quote here for everyone as they go into their weekend.
“Here’s to the crazy
ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round
pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the
status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote
them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only
thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They
create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe
they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty
canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a
song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and
see a laboratory on wheels? While some see them as the crazy
ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy
enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who
do.” - Steve Jobs
