THE ART OF AVOIDING ANOTHER BASIC NOVEMBER THIS FALL

N
ovember is here which means we have about 60 days to get our 2014 life together before 2015 sneaks up on us.  I don't know about you, but every fall when it seems like the height of the pumpkin spice latte craze wears off, I can't help but think about what every sip symbolizes.


Pumpkin Spice Latte for the fall


The pumpkin spice latte is perhaps thee most basic drink of the fall and when looked at closer, connotes themes of predictability, complacency and even compromise.  We know when it will be available, will probably indulge in a few cups and never really demand more creativity from our coffee dealers.  All is not lost.  

Just because a few major goals were hit early on in the year does not mean it is time to get cozy, don the fuzzy socks and hibernate until January.  No!  If anything, November is the perfect time to set new goals, recommit to previous ones, and/or do something that will stamp out all traces of "basic."  If the pumpkin spice latte is a metaphor for the typical end of the year wind down when it comes to our goals, we are in for a very basic November.  We can choose differently though by looking at things anew, reaching out to form new relationships, stretching our capacities and the bounds of our creativity, and perhaps challenging ourselves to obtain more.


Blogher.com's 30 Day Blog Posting Challenge called National Blog Post Month (#NaBloPoMo) poses a perfect challenge.  To shake off the "basics" I have committed to posting daily for the next 30 days in the hopes of AVOIDING ANOTHER BASIC NOVEMBER THIS FALL.

Join me and follow along as I blog about the (not even close to basic) art I find everywhere and in everyone in my majestic art life!  I'm letting you know upfront your comments, questions and suggestions will sustain me during this challenge.  So please comment and share freely the posts you enjoy!
