Most people don't realize how subtle the creation process really is. I for one have equated my ability to get things done with willpower. The harder I worked the more I would accomplish and I often had difficulty asking for help. That felt vulnerable and I didn't want to go there. The problem with doing it my old way, is that was too easy to be led astray. Yes, by other people, but mostly by myself and a process that was far too focused on external goals. The picture is seldom clear at first, so we have a tendency to project what we want to see on it. Maybe it's not as much a picture as a feeling sense. I truly allowed my heart and gut to guide me through this process of collaborating with people in the design of this site. Perhaps the most challenging practice I have ever engaged in.
The process took longer than I hoped yet something inside would not let me rush it. I had good guidance and surrounded myself with skilled and generous people. Michael Hoffman who's Intention Creation workshop in Bend Oregon kicked this off! Billy Thomas of ComputerWild Spokane who so graciously helped me with computer hardware and the thoughtful design of my first website. Billy created the tag line, "The Path to an Intentional You" as well as the logo. Ame Stanko of Pixel Lava in San Diego who continues to work diligently on a shared vision for this site. Husband and wife photographic team CallahanFreet begin by getting to know you with a sit down before they shoot. Having completed one of two sessions and I am looking forward to our next get together. My dear friend Nico Patel who spent several days proof reading and Tammy Drew who has come into my life with nothing but kindness and support. As well as too many others to mention in this short blog. Thank you all, for being a part of something that resonates from my heart and for this I am grateful.
