Shopping Insight!

Big Insight.  Shopping is creative.  Worse than that—Shopping robs time and money away from other creative pursuits.  When we enter a store, we use up all our creative energy.  It overtakes all our brain—right and left hemispheres—my two favorite subjects J.  We start to see possibilities we didn’t see before.  We can combine outfits or […]

Planet Heart Creation Myth

I invent from the gut.  I cannot imitate.  I cannot invent something that didn’t come from within.  I let the subconscious doodle, or the fingers type, and then I analyze what makes those subconscious, creative impulses okay and logical.   I bring them to the conscious level— sometimes by a lot of force, but not always. […]

Heart & Earth

I determined a long time ago to be as good as I can possibly be—which I define by not causing damage to oneself, others, and the environment.  However, this pact was not the real challenge.  The deal was to be as good as I can be while living in the real world, as part of […]

Creativity within Limits:

In ballet class, while doing bar work, we memorized routines set to music.  The music was divided  into four parts, and each part was divided into four as well.  A responsible routine allowed the leg to use its muscles in each of the four directions of the body.  We had four chances to warm up […]

Creativity with Boundaries:

Creativity seems limitless.  It’s quite infinite in fact.  However, creativity does exist within rules.  It has some boundaries.  For example, I can make an infinite amount of heart mandalas.  But for a Heart Mandala Game Book, I have to choose a set of 3-5 fixed sizes of hearts, and keep all the hearts the same shape […]

Mandalas as a Positive Influence on the World:

When something happens on the news that you can’t control, always remember that you can control your own actions.  You can control being a good person.  You can control not hurting others.  You can control doing your best to teach your children to be their best.  The Heart Mandalas are one of the ways in […]

Heart Mandala Rewards:

I hope the Heart Mandalas can bring beauty to someone else out there.  I recommend cutting them out and feeling them in your hand.  Children can feel the magic of creating beauty on their own.  It is very satisfying.  Children can give parents Heart Mandalas as thank you’s to show their appreciation. Parents can hand […]

OCD–and the Mandala Remedy:

The variety in nature is overwhelming (and beautiful at the same time.)  I see varieties in species, styles of cooking, materials—the potential variety in this list alone could be too much for me.  I find a relief, a cleansing, in forming HeartPatternsTM such as the Heart Mandalas. TM  When I draw a particular heartflower, I […]

The Synergy between Art and Science:

Hearts are my tools, like words to a poet, and colors to a painter.  They are an elegant synergy of order and creativity, predictability and surprise.  Hearts are geometric, which is beautiful–the right side of the brain fires up.  Emotions like warmth and love and beauty activate as well.  But hearts have so much logic […]

The XYZ Patterns

The X-Y-Z PatternsTM Did you know that we all navigate through life on an x-y-z axis?  Our body takes up space.  Our body is upright, along the z axis.  We always bend or lift things along the z-axis.  At all times, we have a front side and a back side, which is the x-axis.  We […]

Mandala Definition
