Where's Julie?

The nice thing about facilitating in-residence programs is the quiet nights that offer a chance to work on Julie's Doodles.

Go Lisey!

How you see yourself is just as important to health and wellbeing as diet and exercise. Check out GoLisey.com, an new effort by my friend and colleague, Elise Yanker, to reframe how cancer patients see themselves and the world around them.

Advice from a Hero

 “The only way to learn how to write and draw is by writing and drawing … to persist in the face of continual rejection requires a deep love of the work itself, and learning that lesson kept me from ever taking Calvin and Hobbes for granted when the strip took off years later.”

--Bill Watterson
