Life of a traveling artist…

Its the end of my 2nd week on the road since I left Savannah on Jan 17. Time really does change when you are traveling. Sometimes you have no idea what day it is and the only time you know is DAY Time or NIGHT Time. I am ok with this actually … and perhaps this is why I have made the choice to travel.

Because it is a choice – so whenever I start to question or doubt my decision to take this trip, I remind myself that I am choosing to travel. There are moments, like today that I really wanted to just sleep all day and luckily I have a tent so I did just that. of course when one spends the day sleeping that means it I might be up late however, I don’t think this will be the case because right now, I’m enjoying the messages that I’m receiving while dreaming.

A few nights before I began to travel, I was woken up in the middle of the night because I thought I heard my name being called and so I said out loud, YES. I remember this so vividly because remembering the images that came after I heard my voice – the lights that were sparkling around me made me feel this immense sense of well being and love. I believe it was my angels showing me that I am safe and ready to travel. I keep reminding myself that I’m only in the 2nd week of my traveling and so much is going to unfold as I continue forward on this path to the Unknown. The answers are coming …. and all I need to do is TRUST!!

Trust that when the time is right, I will find a place to live, people to share my life with, a romantic relationship that is ideal for both of us and opportunities to earn money that allows me to live comfortably. I know this is to be true because I believe it to be true. The past few days have been very interesting because I’m sharing space with people who are living at the Occupy site in Tallahassee, FL. I’m grateful to them because its giving me a safe place to sleep. I’m grateful for them because they are attempting to work with the community to create positive change. I am grateful for them because they have been so welcoming to me. I am grateful for them because they are giving me more to think about.

I’m sitting in a cafe writing this – not sure if anyone even reads my blogs at this point so I’m allowing myself to be real and honest which is what I believe I am most of the time.

On a completely different train of thought !! Last nights event at the DIVINE UNION rocked! My first event and it felt so good to meet a group of women who are also using the spiritual laws to allow them to Manifest in their own life. I know there are more people for me to meet .. and for this I am also grateful.

until next time …

MPL news mentions

I am so grateful for my past year & half in Savannah, GA … as I always say I couldn’t have planned this past year any better! To have been guided to such a warm, creative city that fully embraces the creative spirit in their residents. After spending 16 years in the East Village, coming to Savannah (& Tybee Island) was a perfect place to decompress and prepare for the next phase of my life as an artist.

I am also grateful to the most recent mentions I have had in the local press — and look forward to returning to the Lowcountry next fall!

Bunny in the City: Thinc Savannah gets in holiday spirit
December 18, 2011 –

Another interesting character chatting with us is spiritual artist Joanne Morton. This Midwestern New Yorker living in the South tells me that, starting in January, she will be traveling nationwide with her “public art project”.

“I will offer mass manifesting hanging mobiles,” she said.

OK. I have no clue what this is and ask her to explain.

“A hanging mobile is a series of circles with art and words that describe people’s positive intentions for the world — check me out at magicpassionlove.com,” says the exuberant artist. Another something new I learned today!

Savannah’s number-one product?
Connect Savannah: Editor’s Note – Jim Morekis

The optimistic, vibrant, DIY spirit of Savannah artists is also exemplified by Joanne Morton, who’s literally taking her show on the road. She invites you to Emmet Park this Monday, MLK Day, from 1–4 p.m. to help create a public art project “Mass Manifesting Mobile.”

Morton, who has been creating art on Tybee Island at Dragonfly Studio, sees the event as a kickoff of her “Magic Passion Love” nationwide public art tour.

2012 is here!

Well, the wait is finally over, we are in the year 2012!
What is going to happen?!
No one knows – who ever does?!
What I do know is what I’ve learned this past year and its been year of LEARNING!!

Learning to “let go”
Learning to “feel good” even when I’m scared
Learning to “forgive myself & others”
Learning to “receive”
Learning to “allow magic”
Learning to “feel passion”
Learning to “live love”
Learning how to be a full time artist was also something that took a little effort because so often other people’s standards of living creep into my own ideals.

Its so important to TRUST your Intuition to know what is “best” for you!!

In the new year, I will find myself “ON THE ROAD AGAIN” with the MPL-USA Art Tour and I’m very excited! I know along the way I will find myself in situations where I might be uncomfortable/nervous/scared however if I stay true to my spirit, I trust that everything works out for my highest good! Because that’s what I’ve been doing ever since I left New York City in the spring of 2010!

I’ve been following the “Trickydame’s To Do List” and wow … life feels pretty good!

If you would like to receive a PDF of the Trickydame’s To Do list – subscribe to my website (button on the right hand column!) and I will send you a copy to print!!

Relax & Enjoy the new year – its going to be our BEST YEAR YET!!
