Uploading a new self-portrait for online promo (shown below), creating a new document presenting my professional experience, updating my LinkedIn profile, and a trip to the local library to get a library card; these are my accomplishments for today.
Yesterday, I relocated back to Arizona. Since early April, I have been working in New Mexico on the BeeSWeek 2013 production for my non-profit, Pollinator Support Movement. There are dozens of concerned citizens that have helped me along my journey. Most recently, I would like to thank the talented architect that supported me during my stay.
With this move back “home”, I feel excited to begin reintegrating myself back into the many Phoenix communities that I appreciate. Arts, entertainment, creative design, “free the bees” work, and the beautiful desert… YES!
It is amazing to me that a full year of Pollinator Support Movement work is already under my belt. On a daily basis, my spirit encourages me to continue my bees work journey. I am so encouraged by the progress thus far!
The challenge of “not having a regular paying job” to fund my community-beneficial venture has become a major roadblock. Both the quality of my personal relationships and “free the bees” progress have been slowed.
I have truly enjoyed the freedom of working on my art, music, and community bees work anytime I want. And, I fully realize that I also truly enjoy producing the financial stability that encourages my creative projects to occur in bigger and more glorious bursts.
My next steps: secure freelance, full, or part-time creative and event design work.
