I wanted to update you on what is happening with the direction of the blog, memberships and membership levels.
Let me start with the direction. I am going to steer the blog in the direction of spiritual, life coaching and inspirational. In terms of spiritual, my background is metaphysical, Christian, and artist, so it will be approached from that aspect. As for the memberships, the free will include articles as has so far and the premium, please bare with me as I am working on setting up a monthly recurring payment method, will allow you to access e-books, audio and even connect to live events I will schedule via Zoom. I hope some of you will consider premium membership.
Again, I want to celebrate and thank my fellow bloggers for their contribution with their time and the work they put in on their blogs.
I want to figure out how to best approach the artist and coaching path, which in a way I see as connected and both matter to me, very much. I have worked out a plan for this, as planning wisely is important in life. Here is what I plan and I hope to see it come to fruition.
Continue to offer songs and poems on the blog
WIth your financial support, this is crucial, create greater quality of work
With your financial support, periodically create video pieces as well
Continue sharing my personal life experiences through this blog
Create short meditations you can listen to anytime on this blog, and should be able to download, as I know everyone is pressed for time in our society these days
Create longer meditations for when you can take more time for yourself perhaps on weekends, those would be for sale on my Bandcamp site, higest quality mixed and mastered works, with your help and support
See what else in time the spirit leads me to offer
I could offer everything for sale, but I don’t really want to, I really would like with your help to offer what I can on this site to as many people as possible. Not everyone has the ability to go out there and pay for a Coach and even buy books of poetry and enjoy music performance, so with your help, we can bring poetry and more to a wide audience. Thank You.
I had an interesting dream recently and the details are not important to share, but what came out of it for me that is the main thing. What did come out of it for me? It was a sort of culmination message on this journey and particularly as regards my vocation.
I signed up for bunch of meet up groups to hone my skills, gain new skills and to network. After this dream and a few other things that I have observed I realized I am not a fractured atlas, nor do I want to be. I am by God’s grace I hope not that at all and a very focused woman who is focused enough to create, to channel her energies into being very discriminate in choosing select venues through which she creates. Also, by God’s grace a woman who realizes that it is not about quantity of people she networks with, but quality of people, and that is why it is best to have a very well chosen, well thought out list of venues two or three that one works with and creates with, from. My running around the city with a bunch of meet up groups, and knowing a whole bunch of artists etc… is not God’s calling for me. Creating from scratch, learning as I create with others as they create, and being selective, and wise in my choices that is the calling, especially as a sign of maturity. What is my choice of venues for creating etc…that I hope to work with and focus on:
My kaartist blog and bandcamp site
The Church/Catholic community
Poet’s House -plan to become a member
Italian-American Writer’s Association
I also thought about my mom who is in her 90’s and how to best honor her and realized the best way to honor her is to keep friggin life as decluttered, streamlined focused on quality, not quantity as possible, even in my social life, just have a few key deep profound shared culture and faith centered relationships that make my world shine and I make theirs shine. If God would bless me with a life partner, also to be a partner in the arts, awesome. That is the best way I can honor her is to do what we used to teach our ESL students K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Sweetheart. I hope I can do just that, simple, sweet, decluttered, quality, not quanity.
As I realize that God intended for us to be a light and that though it is important to be able to pay the bills and all that, though if you have extra to live a comfry life, travel a bit to learn , see outside your world, invest for later in life, I find myself thinking about my path.
Personally, I want to be in a great community of people, people who can share my journey of Torah learning, and the arts, teaching. I seek a life partner who is going to have a deep connection to me and I to him heart body spirit soul, on so many levels, mutually, and where mutually we will be the best of friends, can banter, debate, even maybe disagree, but at the end of the day love each other always. I seek someone that the bond is so deep, that we inspire each other so much, give so much joy to each other in the like journey we make, and in so many ways that fidelity and loyalty are a given every day 24/7. I am meditating this kind of union coming into my life, a man coming forward into my life that has that same wish for such a union. I know that person is out there, they just have to come forward into my life, but I know it may not be by my timing, but by that of He who knows the best timing. Meantime I meditate on that person coming forward, all issues being sorted that need sorting, boldly, courageously, fearlessly coming forward free and clear. This is one of the gifts I have asked for for Rosh Hashanna and will meditate on receiving.
Vocation wise, where do I go? I will be working with the artist group in the synagogue on spoken word performance and will be focusing on performance poetry for the most part, my own original stuff and public domain material. Then the in depth coaching. I really want to help others to find their wings to fly. The other aspect of my path will be promoting the in-depth coaching, providing material and in formats that will benefit the maximum number of people via google plus and google hangout. I want to help people really find their path, make transitions and so much more, adding the spiritual component to it that is I think an important part of life. My hope is to bring reflection and so much more through the arts and through in-depth coaching. Learning to lead, and so much more will be part of my journey in the synagogue, a place I am already learning. I look forward to this path and I know I may have some who don’t fully support it, and that’s okay, it’s those who do that count. I also hope that person as I have described, that union as I have described also comes into my life, so I can share it with that special person, including my path of Judaism.
