The 100 Day Reality Challenge

Okay, so YES I have had issues with allowing myself to release some weight. I affirm my beauty with positive action now! Was that 17 sec YEP I’m letting that go!!

This is the art based company I started with my partner in everything, Mr. Kuroji Ntu.
One of the many things we do is the ACR, Artistic Couples Retreat, four times a year.

I opened my eyes to see my eye looking back at me. “AHHHHHHH!” I yelled, yes I yelled, as I reach to see if someone, something or nothing was there then the eye disappears. Slowly the fog settles and my mind is clear. “Silly girl that was your own wrist” I snap at myself while grapping a pen. The scribble flows from my hand like a three year olds attention span. A gathering of folks who look so different yet connected in thought, is the first thing I paint on the napkin. *It’s all I had at my bed side* Me, I’m leading a discussion on a topic I like because I’m smiling a lot and Kuroji is quiet. Keeping him from talking is like keeping sand from in between your toes as you walk along the beach, both are inevitable. Alarms start to go off, first a jungle scene sound, next an old phone, then Star Wars is losing a battle on frontier Tamika’s bed or something close to it lastly the fog returns. I look at the clock its 630. It’s time to get Queene up. I have to remember this; what else do I remember! I heard “Thank you for your time today, come join us at a retreat next time!” in my own voice. Everything else starts to fade now, I wasted too much time analyzing and not writing. “WHY!!!!” I whisper as I trip over that one shoe that escapes the closet every night. “Queene, baby diva rock star, get up and remember to brush your teeth.” I yell halfway between the bathroom and her room as the urge to pee takes over my body and I take off in the p100 meter dash! And so starts my day!

“Thank you for your time today, come join us at a retreat next time!” sticks to me like bread on ribs! I’ve been thinking about it all day. On my tea break, I don’t smoke but I do get my smoke breaks, like a time capsule saved until 2012 it just snap back to me. Monthly one day gathering around the country or east coast, for now, to attract more people to the retreats but more importantly to get them to let go and let art! That’s what that was! I will it so it will be! MANIFESTED One Day ACRs along the EAST coast!

So now I am on the path to planning


1. Get a more flash intense website
2. Get those t-shirts printed
3. Call east coast art and community base centers
4. Find out how to do press/ media packets
5. BRAND SELLS remember that
6. Remember to love always!
I am on a mission! Eyes have it!

Love is….

How exciting! I've been thinking of having an art center where people can come to do art, take classes and relax, but traveling to existing locations is a fantastic idea and a lot more profitable in the long run, because you dont have the overhead and problems of real estate, utilities etc. Plus you get to travel to wonderful locations : ) You are an inspiration!
I'm listening to the radio show now.

TY! We actually have been doing the Artistic Couples Retreat (4 to 7 days long) for 6 months now but my dream told me to make them one day retreats as well. I am working on the outline for that now.
It's hard to plug your brand when trying to stay humble!!!

love is...
