Reflections of a Kickstarter Project
But before I get into that, I promised in my last blog post, Fledgling Lessons Learned, that when I found new fitting Owl pictures to depict the next stages of the process, I would share them. Well, here is a relatively accurate depiction in owl imagery :o)
The Non-Squishy Strategy
The strategy is actually one of the lessons that Squishy Blueberry is introduced to in the first book, Reflections of a Blueberry. Simply said: Follow Your Joy. Meaning follow your heart, what lights you up! And this, although sounds simple, can require a lot of work (e.g. meditation) if you have spent the majority of your adult life disconnected from your creative flow, your internal compass, and not knowing what your inner voice really wants or even feels.
What Squishy was trying to tell me!
and you know before long

like a harmonious song.
Sung from chords
from the beyond the beyond

that know where you belong.

And how tragic to go through life without knowing what truly brings you joy.
