Sophia going against the “flow”

Going against the flow is a decision that has to be made. But it doesn't necessarily start with "I'm going to go against the flow!"

Then, when you decide to be true to yourself and find your own way, you suddenly realize this means going against the flow. You may suddenly discover that in being true to yourself and finding your own way you … [Read more...]

We have an expression in our house that we use almost daily: "Let it go… like a balloon… let it go!"It is so difficult to let things go. It is difficult to let friends go. Your loved ones. Your pet. Your job. Your house. Your church. Your religion. Your faith. So many things. It is difficult to let things go.But what is the most difficult thing to let go? What about our anger? What about our fear? What about our resentments? What about our griefs? What about our disappointments?Sophia is le … [Read more...]

find your own Sophia wisdom

Socrates believed that we all carried our own wisdom deep within and that it just needed to be coaxed out, usually with a series of questions. He demonstrated this one day on a small boy walking by. He asked him a series of questions, the boy answered, revealing to Socrates' disciples that he already had the knowledge.Jesus was no different. What did Jesus usually use in his teaching? Stories. Everyday stories that people already understood. Simple parables... like the one about flowers not … [Read more...]

I'm pleased to announce that this original drawing, "caught", has sold and has found a home in California. I incorporated this drawing into my Sophia series. I'm always happy when an original sells.

Sophia and Nicki Minaj Wild

I love this quote of Nicki Minaj: “When I am assertive, I’m a bitch. When a man is assertive, he’s a boss. He [is] bossed up. No negative connotation behind ‘bossed up.’ But lots of negative connotation behind being a bitch. Donald Trump can say, ‘You’re fired.’ Let Martha Stewart run her company the same way and be the same way. [People will say] ‘f**king old evil bitch!’ But Donald Trump, he gets to hang out with young bitches and have 50 different wives and just be cool. ‘Oh, Donald, we love y … [Read more...]
