Fortunately // Unfortunately


Fortunately // Unfortunately

If you haven't discovered that Isette Façìon's research on The World's Oldest Microblogging Platform sounds as suspicious as her name, you should check it out. Meanwhile, I'm dipping into The Power of Fun by Catherine Price, where she makes the case for engaging in an extra-special version of fun she calls True Fun and notes its "magical confluence of playfulness, connection, and flow" can lead us to be "more productive and joyful and less resentful and stressed." Wow, "True Fun" sounds just like "creativity"!

What Is Struggle Really Telling You?

Why is it so hard to implement the positive changes we want to make? Why do we react to some situations in ways that cause us pain, anxiety, and fear? Why is it so hard to quiet our minds so we can fully enjoy the present moment? And is there anything we can do to change any of this?


Marjorie Sarnat

Even If You Can't Draw a Straight Line, You Can Be an Artist!

The truth is that straight lines have little to do with artistic expression. Creativity does. Relax and enjoy the experience of drawing or painting whether you have traditional art skills or not, and creativity will flow.

Interview with Punny Cartoonist and Artist Lilly Fluger

Art by Lilly FlugerQ: When did you first discover your talent for cartooning and painting?

A: wanted to be important and popular and be liked, so I tried to be clever and funny and get others to laugh. I signed up for a cartooning class and arrived a bit late to notice that lots of adults were leaving the building. Was it cancelled? I head inside, and open the door, to see that it's filled with kids! I felt so strange at first, but then realized, hey, I'm with my correct age group!
