That’s the greeting that my dear friend, Ken has met me with for nearly 30 years, the time we’ve been friends since meeting as teenagers in music conservatory in Chicago.
That’s Ken in the photo, above. He’s a violinist, and also a kind of mad scientist and inventor of electrified violins and musical sculptures. Among other things…
I’m thinking of Ken today because I’m in his home city in Toronto where I’m joining Laura Hollick live in her studio today for International Soul Art Day.
Laura Hollick will be guiding a live vision quest which is expected to attract over 30,000 participatns. How cool is that?

Yes. I am tired from all the travel.
Thoughtfully, Laura snuck a gift basket full of art supplies and healthy treats into my room, including a packet of Lavender bath salts…you know where I am headed as soon as I hit publish.
Laura and her team will be broadcasting our vision quest live, via webcam, and we’ll also interact with participants around the world on Google Hangouts and on Facebook.
To celebrate the brand new vision I am conjuring pre-quest here in my Toronto hotel room, you can get my popular and (many say) life-changing Creative + Practice Online Workshop at a special True Fans discount…
It’s just for a limited time, so buzz on over there and check it out:
Ken lives in Vancouver, where he works in the movie biz as a sound designer and editor, so we won’t be meeting up in Toronto this time.
Back when Ken and I were starving students and artists in Chicago, we did a lot of dreaming, scheming and visioning (usually over cheap drinks or endless cups of tea, depending) for our future lives as artists, not starving.
It is kind of surreal to have a lifelong friend who knows who you really are and who you always wanted to be. Who I still get to talk to on the phone and celebrate how far we’ve come…and what dreams we still hold for the future. There are always new dreams and frontiers on the creative edge, right?
Friends and like-minded creative colleagues help us see and hold the vision of what we Really, Really, Really want to be, do, create, and contribute.
What I’m sharing in Creative + Practice are the tools help us get from where we are now, to where we want to be.
Even if where we want to go next isn’t clear or even seems a bit scary to consider.
I’d love to help you find and hold your vision…
I’ll be posting live updates throughout the day from Laura’s studio in Toronto on my Facebook pages
I’m on Google+ here.
I look forward to “seeing” you today in the Google Hangouts…and in Creative + Practice.
