Today I am 50 years old. You know what they call women who have entered elderhood? Crones! You know what Crones do? They impart wisdom! Take a seat, kiddies. Today I have 50 bits of wisdom for you. It’s my birthday but you get the prezzies!
Okey dokey, here we go…
1. There’s a big difference between being childlike and childish. Embrace the former. The latter? Grow up already!
2. Seriously though, knowing your inner child’s strengths and weaknesses will help you along. When are you most in your creative flow? What makes you throw a fit? Personally, I think I’m at my creative best when my inner 10- to 12-year-old is in charge. (Let’s not talk about my inner 3-year-old takes over.)
3. Get comfortable with chores because you’ll be doing dishes and laundry until the end of (your) time. (I suggest investing in a decent vacuum. I have a Miele.)
4. The best part about being an artist is seeing the potential in everything and everyone. It’s also the worst part.

P.S. I need to make time for some personal projects. So, starting in October, Rusty’s Electric Dreams will become a bi-weekly publication, meaning it will go out every other week!
