I have always been a fan of Joseph Campbell -- the following is an excerpt from a favorite interview with Bill Moyers:

BILL MOYERS:  “Do you ever have the sense of . . . being helped by hidden hands?”

JOSEPH CAMPBELL:  “All the time.  It is miraculous.  I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time - namely, that if you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.  When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you.  I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”

I have always had an inner faith and trusted in the goodness of life.  As I reflect, amazing things have happened to me when I followed this mindset.  Since “following my blogging bliss” and sharing my passions:  FASHION ART LIFE (which are the heart of charcoal alley) 
amazing things are happening for me.  I am meeting and networking with incredible people -- artists, designers, and photographers.  My self esteem has grown.  People are believing in me, and supporting me.  Doors are opening.  I may not know exactly where this current is headed, but I am enjoying this ride.  If I had one word of encouragement that I would like to share with my readers,  it would be this:  Take the risk!  Find something that you are passionate about -- live it -- love it, and watch it grow into something magical!
