It's a difficult thing to do. Has to be developed like a fine art. The only way to learn to overcome disappointment is by going through disappointment.

Everybody has disappointments in their lives. Sometimes it can't be helped. Economic trends, pressures, disappointment with people.

But if you believe in yourself with a strong faith and trust, you can get through tough times and eventually wind up on top.

Today, survival is success.

So survive and succeed!

As 2010 winds up I'd like to work this for 2011.

Stay positive about life and about yourself and do good things in the world and you'll find happiness.

Looking forward to 2011.

Thanks for 2010 and a Happy and Creative New Year to all!

Heard from a good friend today who had to leave LA a couple of months ago cuz the scene here played itself out. Took a big step by relocating to a beautiful part of the US. He escaped along with his wife. In this tight economy, he got a job, full time. It's not art related, but it's a living and he made the jump and he's happy, and he'll find time to create great art.

Face disappointments head on and don't let them stop you from embracing life with a good spirit.
