Courage. Truth. Fear. Life. Hope.

Good morning… or afternoon, or maybe even evening. I know you are just on your toes waiting for me to post something. Ha. Ha. Ha.

I spent the rest of last night giving myself Reiki, to get a little clarity and find center and peace. Self treatments are just, essential. I have heard of a few practitioners over the years who forget the basics for the self. Self practice. Taking 30 minutes to 1 hour a day, I choose bed time, doing a self-treatment really does wonders.

Anyway. I woke up thinking about my blog last night, which is really the theme of the last  year and the purpose of the Tarot Journey. Making a life change, transiting into a more passion driven livelihood. “Coincidentally” the first thing to pop up on the television this morning was Jane Pauley, Your Life Calling, NBC’s “Today” show.


Today on Prime Time Radio, host Mike Cuthbert interviews veteran journalist Jane Pauley about “Your Life Calling,” her new, AARP-produced series that will appear on NBC’s “Today” show and at

“Your Life Calling” features people who are redefining the way they live and work, by learning new things, taking risks, exploring dreams and yearning for more passion and meaning in their lives.

Jane Pauley has spent many years covering the topic of life transitions, going back to her time on “Dateline NBC” and “The Jane Pauley Show.” With this AARP series Pauley will highlight the unique stories of people throughout America who have reinvented themselves to find personal and career fulfillment on their own terms. Pauley’s reports are about people who’ve heard their “life calling” and responded by taking a bold first step into the unknown.

Like Pauley herself, most of the people she meets belong to the Baby Boomer generation. “Our country has an untapped resource, and that’s us,” said Pauley. “The good news is that through the process of reinvention we get purpose, fulfillment and satisfaction. Those benefits are different than the paycheck, or job promotion, or all the other things that used to add up to success.”

It’s funny to realize how working on, and trying to  produce my little show at the Rowan really robbed me of my time. I’m at a bit of a loss without canvass at this point but ready to paint! Hitting a few stores this afternoon around downtown to see if I can fins something to paint over.

I’m kind of fuzzy this morning so please excuse any typo’s or brain farts.


Frosti was one of the last pieces I spilled out for “A Hidden Place” but ended up being one of the most popular. From comments like “The texture is really intense” on most pieces to “That one” (Frosti) “is easy to approach and so soft.” gave me a few ideas about how to spin these little messages out.

I keep getting asked how “the Show” went and I find it hard to communicate in a few words. First tho I was displaying my work, I was also among many artists at the Gallery Space so there were venues within the venues and a few surprising additions. I met some incredible people. I…

I listened quietly without introducing myself to hear what people said about the work, mine and others.

I met another artist who was from my home town -it is a small world after all. Warm hands, loving smiles, deep ideas. I can’t wait to do some collaboration with him.

I got my ass grabbed a few times by friends. : )


I loved watching everyone take photo’s of “Fertile”. It was as if no one had seen a penis before but aside from that I also got a little education about the symbol from Ancient pompeii. Corrina forgive me for misspelling your name if you have stopped by to read the blog but I never got your card. Anyway this great lady Corrina and I talked for a spell about her work and Young Living and she told me that in Pompeii they would hang little penis plaques outside of the doors for fertility.

I’m glad “Fertile” was by the door. I sold three pieces.

I felt surrounded and supported by friends.

The Rowan, no the streets of Downtown LA were a mess! I couldn’t believe how  many people were out to art walk but it almost seemed more of a circus than an Art Event. Me thinks I gotta tune in for the January show and make it a bit more private or exclusive. I don’t want friends to have to fight through crowds of party-goers and I’d love to create a different sort of dimension. Hey. I’m not complaining it was awesome.

When I said I was truly grateful, I meant it.

Oh man! I almost forgot. BOLT BARBERS was HOT! They had people lined up for cuts and Matt blew me away with how upbeat, positive and enthusiastic he was about the event. I mean it really was more than just creating a “buzz”. Yeah. Good job Matt. I can’t wait for BOLT to open at the Rowan.

I have a few things on my mind that I will try to spell out for you later like Elemental Attunements, and “what’s this story about soy causing cancer???” but I’m not guaranteeing anything until the coffee kicks in.

Much love,

Scott K Smith
