Find out why your vision may be hard to articulate and share with others.

Understanding how your vision develops, helps others to get on board.

Many times it begins with a life altering moment. A need is revealed or experienced and solving that needs becomes a life calling that does not fade with time. In fact, it continues to grow and urges you to create something that must exist and which will solve that problem.

This is a Big, Hairy Audacious Goal, (BHAG) or dream.

As all artist’s of great things know, sometimes its nearly impossible to articulate the finished masterpiece – you simply have to show people.

Freedom in the journeyThis question was asked of me recently, “If I plan my own future, isn’t that planning with my own will? If God is ordering my footsteps, shouldn’t I wait for HIM to tell me what to do?”

The beauty of such a question is the humble heart in which this question was asked. This person truly desires to walk in God’s will, yet sees a need to plan a future. When is the planning of God and when is it not?

DreamingAs long as I can remember, I’ve been acutely aware of my very colorful and realistic dreams. I suppose it comes with the territory of being an artist … or maybe I just decided to pay closer attention to them.

There have been times that I have had a dream and it actually came to pass. The most profound dream of all involved my family and unfolded over a span of twenty five years. 

Dreams are filled with symbolism. As an artist and cartoonist, I think in pictures on a continual basis, so the metaphors and images that appear in dreams are a fascinating conversation that I pay close attention to.
