Being Fearless

Last Sunday, I introduced my children's book, I'm not afraid of..., to family and friends at The Dolphin Book Shop. To add to the festivities, I asked people to draw what they were "not afraid of." We made a communal clothesline of art with all the wonderful contributions. The guest artists ranged from young to old, and their creativity was flowing! I treasure each one. 

I picked out a few to share:

I'm not afraid of...sharing my thoughts!

I'm not afraid of taking risks (me riding a platypus).

I'm not afraid of Life!

I'm not afraid of my daughter's piercings...(anymore!)

I'm not afraid of anyone or any thing because
I'm the meanest person on earth.

I'm not afraid of a new pair of shoes!

I'm not afraid of hair gel.

I'm not afraid of Jello, but my Aunt Florence is!

I'm not afraid of talking sisters (blah, blah, blah...)

I'm not afraid of preforming in front of an audience.

I'm not afraid of braces. (done by and adult!)

I'm not afraid of being myself.

I'm not afraid of midnight or noon —
it's what is between them that scares me!

I'm not afraid of candied bacon!

I'm not afraid of bees.

Love this little cake...

and I love this creative bee! Bee-utiful!

Thank you to everyone for all the love, support, and art 
you have shared with me! It has been a 16-year-long journey to print this book, 
but it was all worth it!
