Not-so-silent observations that splinter my conversations. Harnessing the steady flow of random thoughts and musings that continuously interrupt my daily conversations. Paired here with my artwork and photographs from recent adventures. Non sequitur (pronounced \ˈnän-ˈse-kwə-tər\)- a response which, due to its apparent lack of meaning relative to its context, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing.

Let love guide our choices. Not fear.

Each time I find myself thinking, "I'm afraid that..." I realize that I am allowing fear to influence my actions.

Someday, in the near or distant future, I will look back and wish I'd taken the risk.

How many times have you thought, I wish I had...

A healthy respect for the consequences of our actions and decisions is responsible.

Is a life lived without risk - of injury, of heartbreak, of failure - a life worth living?

I will fail, I will love and lose, I will stumble and hiccup and along the way I will live voraciously, love deeply and sincerely and live authentically. And all of this will smply pave the way for when I shine, I thrive and everything works out even better than I ever could have imagined.

Even with Mercury in retrograde, that day is here. That time is now.

What will you dare to risk?


  1. You are so right, Clea...we think way to often what might happen or what may the other people think about us...I think if we love ourselves and love our life we will be authentic and then no fear can hold us back to do the things of which we know in ourselves we can do them...
    There is a word in German that says "being courageous doesn't mean to have no fear...it means to have fear and still do it!"

  2. Thank you Birgit! I would LOVE to know that word in German. That seems like a valuable word. Maybe even a mantra:)

  3. I so resonate with your post. In fact, I just posted this on my blog... What would you do if you weren't afraid? I would move to NYC, write a book and travel more. I'd also teach art, take pilates classes, and scuba dive.

    I want to know Birgit's german word too!

  4. Mut bedeutet nicht, keine Angst zu haben, sondern diese Angst zu ueberwinden.
