Making your life as an artist

Just as I finished bitching about the workload of marketing my books – and kvetching about a friend at the Y who always kvetches – I found this on Facebook: a marvellously wise free book about how to make a sane life as an artist. Highly recommended. I will now change my ways. And kvetch no more.

And here’s some flash mob joy – LOVE this:

Denver Airport Holiday Flash Mob
