a traveling artist journey so far…

The MPL-USA Art Tour Google Map!!!


I began in Atlanta … then spent the summer on Tybee Island and in October I headed north to get the mini-van and immediately headed south. Along the way….as the leaves were changing …
I have seen sunsets on lakes and in the mountains. I have shared Magic Passion Love in cities with over 8 million people as well as sharing positive energy with almost 500 people population! I have been on the road with truckers, campers, mini-vans and bikes — I have slept in beds, on couches, and massage tables! I have shopped in Walmarts and local shops. I’ve been invited for some amazing meals. I’ve had plans and I’ve been spontaneous. I am completely open to what’s to come …I am completely open to where I’m being led…I am completely OK with where I am.

All that I physically own is in my mini-van.
All that I spiritually own is also in that mini-van.
There is only so much ROOM!!
I’m only carrying what feels right —
The thoughts/feelings that are coming to me
Create so many questions about this journey.
Is it because of all of the traveling I’m doing?
Is it because of this transformational shift that I’m doing?
I am finding it easier to release what doesn’t make me feel good
As the mile marker passes so do my limiting beliefs.

I ask my readers the questions I find myself asking… – “How much do you want to carry in your life?!” “Do I have the time to stop for the unexpected adventure?” “Why am I doing this?!” I have the feeling these questions are being asked by lots of humans … and I am pretty sure I’m not supposed to know the answers….yet another thing I’m learning as I travel.

I’m grateful for this opportunity to figure out exactly what I know and what I don’t know.
Because I feel just fine.

More to come later ….

I love my life

I love my life!!

I am not holding anything back in this moment, right now because I am feeling really good and I love my life!

I don’t always “like” my life … and when I have moments of feeling low energy … I want to be able to remember how good I feel right now because I LOVE MY LIFE!!

To be able to say this – sing this – dance this – feel this is exactly what I have been manifesting for years!!! I want to feel good being me 24/7 and its actually what happens most of the time.

I guess this is what “living in the vortex”, “being connected with your source energy”, “using your intuition in all areas of your life”, “forgiving yourself”, “having gratitude”, “accepting your humanness”, “allowing your Magic”, “feeling your Passion”, “living your Love” will do to your relationship with your reality.

And … I’m not afraid to say out loud, “I love my life!” because I love when others love their life!! There is enough love for all of us to enjoy!!

Its all about LOVE … it really is!!

Living with the Suspense…

For those who are reading this blog for the first time, thanks! I’m a traveling artist who is embarking on an interactive art journey!! I’m sharing Magic Passion Love … keep reading or read previous posts to find out more about MPL – its in you!! For those who have been following for awhile – thank you for your ongoing support!!

This blog post has been on my mind for at least over a week – having lots of guilt for not writing, fear for what to write and forgiveness for having self doubt. Its Sunday, October 24 and I’m at my friend’s home near the Poconos in PA. I’m sitting here looking out the window with a view that is so SPECTACULAR! The leaves are at their autumn best and the lake just glistens with the sun. AND the temperature is perfect!!! I’m so thrilled to be able to experience the part about the Fall that makes me “feel good” — with out have to also prepare myself for what will be next – WINTER!

This is another opportunity for me to stay in the PRESENT MOMENT! Its so important to enjoy/experience what is happening right now so you don’t miss what life has to offer you — knowing the future is coming and being prepared for what is to come is important. However, putting too much attention to what is “not known” completely takes away so much joy from the right now…. this is what I’m learning on the MPL-USA Art Tour!

I understand that my ability to live with more suspense in my life is actually giving me more options. When you have options – perhaps you feel more free to be yourself?! Now, I’m just babbling because this is what I do when I write which makes me nervous about blogging. How much do I need/want to share while I’m on the MPL-USA Art Tour?! I found an amazing sanctuary on Tybee Island to be more connected with my spirit – then my parents helped me manifest a vehicle to actually travel – and now I have a mini-van! Since leaving Tybee I’ve visited people in North Carolina, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania and will be in Virginia on October 30.

That’s pretty amazing when I read it on the computer screen. It goes to show you when you write your accomplishments in life, no matter how small or big – you will see that we actually do accomplish exactly what we are thinking. Having the past week at the country, first with a friend, then by myself, then with my parents, sister and friends back to being alone — I have had a lot of time to understand exactly what I am creating.

I am creating my life that allows me to feel good being me 24/7! This is what my intention was when I first began my spiritual quest in July 2001 — I was TIRED of not feeling good!!! Now that I feel good being me, I am TIRED of others not feeling good — not feeling like they have the right to feel good – feeling afraid to feel good – not knowing how to feel good — feeling guilty for feeling good — we all have the RIGHT & RESPONSIBILITY TO FEEL GOOD right now!! This is why there is a Transformational Shift — the shift is giving us an opportunity to share ideas about Universal Energy — and we all know what happens when you share MAGIC PASSION LOVE energy —

WOW!!

I invite you to Allow Your Magic — Feel Your Passion — Live Your Love as much as you can …
your life will feel better!! … and so will mine!

thank you… I am very grateful to co-create more positive energy with YOU!

Outside New York City …

I’m sitting in a friend’s kitchen and from one window, I can see my new mini-van that I got from my parents (thank you!) and from the other window, I can see Interstate 80! The road that will take me back to NEW YORK CITY!! I’m not sure why there is a delay in driving into the city … I’m really excited to be back and see my friends.

Is it because of the TASK at hand today!!??? I’m going to go to my mini-storage and see what STUFF is in there. I am considering letting the mini-storage go and put all of my stuff in the mini-van. Will I be ok with less stuff?? I’ve been away from MY STUFF for 6mths and there has only been a few things that I’ve missed, My Art Supplies, A couple of books, and that’s about it… I’m really curious to know what I put in those boxes last February. My head was in such a different place as is my spirit!!

As I see the sun start to shine more – its been a cloudy morning, I am taking this as a sign that there is light ahead on my journey. I am not afraid of what’s to come because I know I can handle anything! I am merely curious and excited because if what has happened is any indication of what is coming to me – I am so thrilled to be living life as I am right now.

I am living in the moment as best I can on a moment to moment basis. Listening to my thoughts and calming myself down when I begin to go to old ways of thinking – these thoughts no longer serve me!! I do not need to rush rush rush — everything will be accomplished in a steady and enjoyable pace. I learned this when I had the huge task of emptying my apartment – I did it! I learned this when I arrived on Tybee Island and begn to look for work – I found it! I learned this when I started on the road yesterday to head towards NYC – each hour, I was several miles closer to my destination. Every moment I live are opportunities to learn – Every moment I enjoy are magical!

When I go back to NYC in about an hour – I know I will be experiencing it a little differently as I am changed. For I have the knowledge about how important it is to ALLOW MY MAGIC – FEEL MY PASSION – LIVE MY LOVE. I’m excited to continue to share this others. I have no clue what I’m doing or how its going to get done – I just know that I’m having a party on Monday, October 18 in NYC, will be in Philadelphia, Sunday October 24, and Lexington, VA on Saturday, October 30. Every thing else in between is a mystery waiting to be discovered — let’s see what happens!!

Another week on Tybee Island…

I had planned to travel into Savannah for the MPL-USA Art Tour this next week however, plans sometimes change.

A part of me was half expecting this as the person I was going to stay with has been having some challenges. When I see other people experiencing challenging times, I want to be able to help them, offer them some advice however, as we all know, ultimately we are responsible for our own lives. We make our own choices and have to realize that there are consequences to every action. Which is why I encourage positive actions because that creates positive outcome!! AND … we can’t solve other people’s problems…all we can offer them is support & understanding as well as suggest that they get “Professional help”! I am not a life coach – counselor, I am an intuitive energy worker & artist — I can offer insight how to find ways to feel balanced but if there is someone in your life who is going through challenges, remember the best thing you can do is live your life as an example of how its done!!!

Which is what I am doing on a daily basis!! Now that I’m going to be on Tybee for another week, I will have more time to focus on the planning of the MPL-USA Art Tour!! I have started to get some ideas of where I will be traveling after I leave NYC on October 18. First stop will be Philadelphia … then Lexington, VA, Ashville, NC, Charlotte, NC, Columbia, SC …. and the list grows. As I begin to plan the tour and do the research, I’m finding myself feeling URGENCY to get the plans settled! Find the money that is going to pay for this! Know who might be traveling with me! Figure out where I’ll be staying … so many unknowns are presenting themselves to me and a part of me wants the answers now!!

This is part of the lessons I’m learning — its ok not knowing. Take the action that you can. Trust in the process of life. Be kind. Be honest. Be grateful. Which I am.

I’m being very conscious of the thoughts that are coming into my head and gently releasing them after I acknowledge them. I am not interested in feeling “crazy busy” or “crazy stressed” and it is such a choice to feel this way!! This is where living on an island with the ocean as your best friend does come in handy 🙂

However, I only have until the end of September to enjoy the beaches of Tybee and when I leave, I will have the memory of the ocean to keep me calm. I will also have the tools I’ve learned over the years to stay balanced. We must always remember that we don’t need to do things alone… when you are feeling stressed, under pressure, scared – REACH OUT AND ASK FOR HELP!! There are people to help others … and its the best thing to you can do for yourself. That’s one of the reasons humans exist – to help one another 🙂

And … my next Special Guest on the “Magic Passion Love & …” Blog Talk Radio Show is an amazing resource for women who feel “BUSY!”

“Artist Statement
This exhibit is a combination of work that I painted in New York City and on Tybee Island. I paint the feelings as they are imagined in my mind. Releasing my spiritual energy is one of my favorite things to do as a human being. Sometimes being a human can be a little baffling and confusing for me as I am in a quandary about the hesitancy to share Gratitude & Love easily.

Being appreciated and loved is my first need from other humans and in order to fully be appreciated & loved by others, I have learned that I must also love & appreciate myself. This summer living on Tybee I have had an amazing love affair with myself! There were many others who I was able to share this affair with and for them, I will always be grateful!!

There are six canvases that I painted in my art studio in Chinatown, NYC during the years 2008-2009. Using the energy of NYC, I painted fast & swiftly with acrylic. It feels good!! It is ok to touch the paintings!!!

The first few weeks, I spent many afternoons painting on the front porch while Sam Adams played next door in the back of Bernie’s. The three watercolors were a way for me to relax in the flow of island life. The four mixed media matted pieces represent the affirmations that I use every day to keep my mind/body/soul balanced.

“In the Vortex” has two sides, words by an author/friend who so wonderfully describes what being In The Vortex feels like – and I created the image one afternoon with the windows open watching the surfers on the waves. The other oil pastel I painted while watching the sunrise over the Atlantic.


The “Hearts on Wood”, represent my relationships with four different men with two names – this artist never reveals the names of her sexual/emotional muses because these relationships are very special. My heart is open for all kinds of love as long as it inspires my art.

This summer has been the beginning of a huge shift in the Transformational Energy that is happening on our planet right now as a part of spiritual human evolution. I have made the decision to honor my own spiritual self by Allowing Feeling Living my life as an artist. How are you honoring your spiritual self? (There are no wrong answers!!)

“We are here to experience Human Love. Self Love.
Service to Me then to We.”

Joanne Morton, the Artist in the Attic

Thank you to the Tybee Arts Association for making this show possible with allowing me to use the space. I would also like to thank Denise Elliot-Vernon for her amazing help in producing this show, Sari McAfee for her creative inspiration, Fran Galloway & Marilyn Rosenberg for both of their friendship & support.

“The Gratitude Show” is dedicated to Eldo Hartz, of the Carbo House for giving me the opportunity to be the Artist in the Attic!

Joanne will always be grateful for the people and the island of Tybee for welcoming the artist that is Trickydame.

What Trickydame has learned so far from her MPL special guests thus far…

Sunday, August 22, 2010 will be my 12th BTR Radio show!

As I prepare for the show tomorrow with Gerlaine Reliford I began to look back on what I’ve learned from my other special guests. One of the reasons I began to invite others to share their Magic Passion Love with me is because I am always open to discovering new ways to ALLOW MY MAGIC … FEEL MY PASSION … LIVE MY LOVE! There are so many wonderful souls who are sharing their personal experiences so that others can WITNESS THEM! By witnessing positive change – it shows you that anything is possible!! Gerlaine is SAYING YES TO LIFE — and one way she is doing this is with the Massive Change Challenge … LISTEN TO THE SHOW TOMORROW NIGHT TO FIND OUT MORE!!

Here’s what I’ve learned from…
Courtney Mclean has an amazing talent as a very smart writer/singer who is proud to live her words honestly! On this show, I wasn’t keeping a secure internet connection so while I was trying to get a secure line, she sang a song for us! It was lovely ( you can go back and listen online!!) – and her voice inspired me to stop struggling with trying to get on line and instead… call in the power of everyone listening to help get online. I asked for 30 seconds of silence to concentrate on getting a secure internet connection as well as help stopping the oil lean in the Gulf. Low and behold, within minutes I was back on line and taking calls! Then a few days later, the oil leak stopped!!! Coincidence?! Who knows?! Who cares – the end result is positive… my show with Courtney reminded me to keep ASKING my guides and people around me to SHARE energy to create positive outcomes for all of us!!

My next guest was one of my co-creators on the 100 Day Reality Challenge, Stacy Stehle! Listen to this show and find out how she uses SEA CREATURES as guides to understanding ourselves!!

HAVE YOU MET YOUR INNER SHARK?!?!

The bit of wisdom that I really am grateful Stacy shared was the info about PRE-PAVING my day … before the day begins (or the night before), she shares that she states out loud how she feels about doing the tasks of the day. Stating out loud how the day is going to go, how she will handle the tasks and any surprises and how she feels at the end of the day. This has been extremely helpful to add to my list of daily tools that I use to stay in balance in my own life. I have said for years, “today is a good day” and now I add, “Today I feel awesome about blogging because the words and ideas come easily to me. I am able to blog enough today and still have time to chill & process. I enjoy all of the food that I eat today and having the groceries that I need makes it simple for me to prepare.” Pre-paving your day so you don’t have to think about which route you will be going …its already set in your spiritual GPS!! Thanks Stacy!

As you can tell, I have lots to say about my SPECIAL GUESTS!!! Because as Stephen M Thorton reminded me is we all have a responsibility to enjoy our lives work and do what we enjoy! Stephen is a talented musician and is fortunate to be working in the music industry. How does someone who works in a Bed Factory or as a cashier/stock person in a grocery store enjoy our work!? Recently I’ve met people who work in factories or stores and as I told them, people who make beds are doing the world a great service! I loved my amazing soft bed I had in NYC! Thank you to everyone from the people in the factory – to the drivers who drove it to the store – to the salesperson who sold it to me! The same goes for people who work in Grocery Stores! We are so lucky to be able to go into stores and have all of the food we need at our fingertips!
Thank you to all of those people who keep it stocked so neatly for us to find and for the cashiers who put it in the bags. We need food and I try to imagine what we would do if we didn’t have buildings filled with food to feed us! I would suggest that most every job that is out there in our society has a purpose to serve society. Its important to appreciate it!!

Last week I chatted with Deborah Kagen – Mojo Recovery Specialist!! This show was so insightful because we talked about ways to stop those NAGGING PAST LIMITING BELIEFS!

STOMP YOUR FEET!! and this week as I’ve been working on the plans for the MPL-USA Art Tour – there has been a lot of stomping feet!!! These shows are more proof that we all experience similar issues when working on Allowing Our Magic Feeling Our Passion Living Our Love!!

The Manifesting Circle show is still one of my favorites and I hope to do it again — if you want to listen – here’s the link to this show!

I learned a lot from the Spontaneous Special Guest – AMY CLARKE — however I think I want to hold off writing about my shows with her until after our second show together – Sunday August 29!!!

Thank you to everyone who’s listened, called and shared the link to your friends. I am starting to book my Fall Special Guests, details will be coming soon. There will be surprises, art and perhaps a chat about Menopause!

Magic Passion Love is EVERYTHING and EVERYTHING is Magic Passion Love!

I’ve been receiving a lot of what I’ve been asking for in the last few months and it feels good. However, I am realizing it feels good to receive what I’ve been receiving because I’m READY to receive — truly receive it so that I ALLOW FEEL LIVE my Life 100%.

As with so many of us, there are two areas that we often feel that is lacking – this is our finances & romantic relationships! If I can find a place to release the “need to fear” these areas – I truly believe that I will receive an amazing financial opportunity that will really make me feel good being an artist and as soon as I am 100% comfortable to receive the love & attention from a man – I will meet the right man for me to be in a romantic partner-friendship with.

It doesn’t matter what I’m doing because when the time is right, we will meet at the exact spot that is already destined to happen – ha! Yes … this is an amazing moment in my spiritual growth and I am grateful to be sharing this with my co-creators … It is important to have witnesses to our spiritual growth. We can be our witnesses … what are you witnessing in yourself today?!

I have witnessed that I am finding ways to feel bad about myself & the ideas of me being in a healthy sexual/romantic partner-friendship with a man. Which is so unacceptable (it doesn’t make me feel good!!) … so I’m writing a blog about what I’m ready for!!

My ideal romantic partner-friend is a man who is looking to share a moment in time with me — this moment is as long as it feels good. In this moment, we live our lives!! For me, my life is currently in a constant state of flow – I will be traveling soon and if he wanted to join me that would be awesome. However, if the moment shifts and it feels right to stay in his home that he’s created, this is also possible. Unlimited possibilities on how we share time together.

My life’s work is how i spend my moments in life – I am an artist who shares magic passion love… and there is room in my life to inspire & support his life’s work.

To feel good, my mind/body/soul requires being with sexy, smart, cute, funny, spiritual, creative, clever, kind, honest, responsible man. My body/mind/soul also needs to be cared for, sexually, emotional, physically …. and to have one man who is open to giving this attention to me – I am so willing, able and ready to support his own sexual, emotional, physical needs to find balance in his life.

It is safe for me to meet him – what is mine has not passed me by.
I am worthy loving – my body is worth loving.
Being honest & Laughing is what is so awesome about our relationship
We easily & effortlessly get to know one another

Thank you for being a witness to the release of all fear of being in a romantic partner-friendship!

I allow my magic, I feel my passion, I live my love which attracts my romantic partner-friend to appear!
