 " can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." Steve Jobs (from his Commencement address at Stanford June 12, 2005).

There are days that I struggle. My head is spilling over, my to do lists growing...Priorities, priorities...It is mostly Mondays, my day 'off'. My financials are spread out next to my paintbrushes and I feel guilty grabbing a brush in stead of a file. But I let my gut feeling take over and jump as I do with many things.... Steve Jobs was a wise man. When I make my choices I trust that what I do is right even though at those very moments it doesn't always make sense. Receiving the spread today from French Architectural Digest connects an important dot for me. It keeps me going in MY direction with sheer determination!
