1. Congratulations. What is it about being an artist that creates an opportunity for people to share with you that they can do your job as good or better than you? Awesome. I can't wait for your parade. I want everyone to be creative, it's kind of the best thing ever, but I will try not to show up where you work, unprompted and announce to a crowd of no one who cares that I can do what you do. Because that is just really, really weird.
2. Hall of gems. I really like polishing jewelry. In fact I think I could do that all day.
3. Spinning out. This is a lesson borrowed from a friend who shared it with me earlier in the week (you know who you are All Star). Sometimes it feels really nice to have someone step in and say, "well, that is about to change," when things aren't going well. A top will keep spinning for a really long time unless you stop it, so maybe sometimes go ahead and stop it.
What did you learn today?
