I crossed paths with a black cat last week at the corner of healthy and happy. We talked at length about life. I made him promises. When he was satisfied with negotiations, he jumped in the car and we drove home together.  I call him Mystère.  He calls me Meowrow. He and Nickel have made it clear that they are not friends and never will be.

Yip, blissfully unaware of the turf war occurring outside

But that story is not why I’m here; it’s just an aside.

I’m here because I’ve been inspired by this quote from Amy Poehler:

“It’s very hard to have ideas. It’s very hard to put yourself out there, it’s very hard to be vulnerable, but those people who do that are the dreamers, the thinkers, and the creators. They are the magic people of the world.” 

–Amy Poehler, Smart Girls: Ask Amy

I’m here because it’s October — what better time is there for magic?

I’m here because I have an official declaration to make:

I hereby declare October as “Make it” month.  The idea is to create something (anything!) new everyday for the next 31 days.  My intention is to post daily.  I hope you’ll join me in dreaming, creating, inspiring, and sharing. 

 

Today, my creation is the goal itself.  You gotta start somewhere!

 

I look forward to what dreams may come.
