My corgi, Oskar, likes to sleep in strange positions.
One self-help creator soundbite I hear about again and again is "Create the art you want to see." You can also interpret it as "Be the change you want to see" or whatever fits your creative drive. I've come to embrace this phrase. It has become my personal mantra. And this last weekend I was at Emerald City Comic Con and saw many paintings and illustrations of Corgis, but not one was a Cardigan Corgi. And us being Cardigan Corgi people here at Short Leg Studio, I realized the time had come to create my own Thorgi. Black and white now, but a color print coming soon and hopefully a t-shirt.
Embrace your inner Thorgi and be the change you want to see!
I had a tough class in yoga this week. Someone in the class was begging for headstand and our teacher said, okay, and it was pretty much the most uncomfortable class I have ever had. I felt like I was missing something that everyone else was either getting or wanting from yoga and it made me wonder why I was even doing yoga in the first place. But a couple days passed and I went to my regular Hatha class and had a nice strong class where I could focus on the poses I knew. But as I left class, I thought, you know, it's good to practice the things we know but it's probably a good thing to be challenged once in a while as well. It's reminds me I have a long ways to go.
