  1. Oh, Magical Quest-o-meter:
    Should I continue to pay big bucks to have my hair colored (so beautiful, so expensive), color it myself (less expensive, more labor-intensive, somewhat risky), or embrace my natural “highlights” (do other 31 year-olds have gray hair)?

    @Intrepid Quester Joy:

    Your heart is true and your task is bold.
    Many have sought the Everlasting High Light – None have found it.
    But the search for Light, High or Low, is eternal.
    Knowing this, be certain of your Quest before your begin.
    For the Quest, once started, must not be abandoned.
    And let not the search for Everlasting High Light divert you from your Life’s Quest.

    Great Magical Quest-o-meter—–I have been painting one big abstract painting since Christmas. I get it nearly done (or done for about a week ) and then I do a completely different painting on top of it based on the painting I just “finished”. I am on my 4th (I have sort of lost track which painting I am really on since one painting seems to slide into another) painting and it all changed again today (or I should say I changed it!). This is the way I usually work and I love it (it also drives the other artists in my co-operative a little crazy and I REALLY love that!) I did a dumb thing and signed up for a big one-woman show in October. Will I have only ONE huge, thick painting to show!!! ???

    @Jean Who Paints With Love:

    You who paint with love
    You draw your life on the canvas with joy
    Every color sings a breath, every brush stroke a heart beat
    You honor life in your work
    So, honor your work, be true
    To yourself
    And by remaining true and finding joy
    You share life’s essence with others.

    (Else call on Hermes for greater speed
    Or Athena for outside assistance)

    Oh Magical Quest-o-Meter,
    I am an artist, selling works online and finding I’m being met with enthusiasm. I’m also nearly 40 and have been in the drudgery of full time office work for 15 years.
    I am married and my daughter will soon leave home for university. We’ve got money saved for this and for emergencies. We have very little debt and one investment property. My husband works full time at a stable job.
    Would I be being completely selfish if I gave up MY stable, full time job for a semi-crappy part time one in order to pursue my art ?
    I’ve been wanting this forever, but I cannot see feeling good about it if my family’s income were to drop by about a quarter until (if) I make my name as an artist.
    Please help!!!

    @Sherri who wonders

    You believe your happiness can be measured in gold
    Yet your heart yearns for another standard
    You bear the burden of your family’s happiness
    – or do you?
    If you will wear the yoke of your family’s happiness
    Ensure you can deliver it
    Whatever the path you tread
    But consider –
    Which weighs more on the scales of life –
    Heavy gold or light as air joy?
    We make choices in all things – tho’ sometimes the choices are hard
    To choose well, choose with your heart.

    Oh Magical Quest-o-Meter,
    My wife is an artist, selling works online and finding she’s being met with enthusiasm. She’s also nearly 40 and has been in the drudgery of full time office work for 15 years.
    Our daughter will soon leave home for university. We’ve got money saved for this and for emergencies. We have very little debt and one investment property. I work full time at a stable job.
    Would I be being completely selfish if I had a hard time with her giving up her stable full time job for a semi-crappy part time one in order to pursue her art ?
    She’s been wanting this forever, but I worry about the money.
    Please help!!!

    @jesinalbuquerque:

    Now more than ever your choices can bring joy
    But whose joy?
    Time for you to Dance – and Think
    Time to Walk – and Dream
    Time to Listen – and Decide
    You can choose a life of meaning and joy
    What do you love? What makes you Dance and Dream?
    Your Brain needs a break
    So Begin with your Heart.

    Hi.
    I lost my job this year, and I am very devasted. I have worked in this field in various offices for over 30 years. Trouble is the management seemed to favour young people, and a manager there did not like be despite my attempts to please her. I didn’t think it was bad enough to get me fired, but I was let go with a hokey reason. They since hired a younger more highly educated person to do my job. I applied, but they would not talk to me. I’m torn between upping my education and doing work in a completely different field. How can I decide? After the hurt, my heart is numb, and not much makes me dance. Help!

    @Cindy Lou:

    Your troubles are sad
    So mourn your losses
    And then let them go.
    This is a good time to take things slow.
    To heal, to love
    Yourself.
    Look for silence.
    And when you find your balance,
    Decide.
