Build it. Write it. Paint it. They will Come.


Remember that movie, Field of Dreams, and the oft-quoted line: If you build it, he (they) will come? How many times have you used that sentiment in your own life? Yep. Me, too. So here goes….

To make the Tax Lady happy last year about this time (or, at the very least, to keep her from scowling at me), I promised to increase my small business income by 20% – working toward a respectable number, thank-you-very-much… one that would be moving north while my expenses move south. You get the picture.

Fast-forward a year. I’m ready to see the Tax Lady. I suppose when you start with nothing, the only way to go is up, right? I seem to be heading {slowly} in that direction, and I’m pleased. For a little lady, she can be tough. And this gal crumbles under that kind of pressure!

So what happened that I’m ready to face the number-crunching-question-asking little lady?? I painted. I wrote. I attended. I lost sleep. I gained gray hair. I lost my eyeglasses (more than once), but found them just in time to finish those tiny details….

I worked hard to build it. And now, they are coming. Customers. Slowly, but surely, the word is getting out. The dollars are coming in. Still just a few, but hey, 20% more than the year before. I can face the Tax Lady with pride and satisfaction of work well done and a goal reached.

Now, I work my buttola off even harder this year to make {more} things happen.

Because

that’s

It’s good to be back, writing. Here. It’s been another busy year, full of color and words, sometimes colorful words. 🙂 I’ve been writing, but most of it tucked into my art – sometimes visible, sometimes not….   But it’s good to be back. Here. On the blog. Navigating through the WP dashboard. On the World Wide Web. …

  Deep in thought, she didn’t notice the old man sitting quietly on a dirty stoop across the street, both showing their years. He watched the scene and smiled a half-smile, with a look of knowing in his eyes….   Notes to self: synonym for dirty? possibly… Is ‘both’ unclear, misplaced?     TGIF! 🙂
