one day…

KristinaMari No Comments

‘One Day…’ is an illustrated children’s book I wrote in 2009 ( my first ‘book’.. I think the next one will be better :) .. was kinda practicing!).  It is represented by an agent until August 2010. Last word .. around December was that a small imprint is interested in making an offer .. so we will see!

all i’ve ever wanted…

KristinaMari No Comments

I’ve thought of what it is..

what i need to know…

this is what i ask myself often–
the only thing i ask for.. from u.. to make me unquestionably believe..

can i trust you — believe in you
have absolutely no doubts about.. your efforts.. your intentions.. no doubts about anything

can i , not sometimes, but all the time
put our futures in your hands and know that you are doing all u can every minute to preserve and protect them..
to make it as good as u can

can i? and can you live everyday showing me why i can.. and treat me in ways that never make me have to question.. ever again?

that is.. all i have ever wanted.

to know i have is actually what i have. to believe in it unquestionably .. and to not be proven an idiot for putting all my .. everything.. into the hands of someone that only pretended.. sometimes.. it should be there…

‘How 2 get what you really really, really really want…

KristinaMari No Comments

I’ve found that listening to an audiobook of Wayne Dyer & Deepak Chopra entitled ‘How to Get what You Really, Really Want’ inspires/empowers me & generally lifts my mood (even if I’m only 1/2 listening while cleaning the house etc..)

anyways :) -there is one part that (in the section about what you really, really Don’t want, you’ll get that too :)) – that I for some reason thought of the perfect example for — 

Wayne discusses having an amazing amount of money  & buying hideous things even though you don’t like them. Which, I guess, to me doesn’t make sense, although I understand the point he’s trying to make. The other day, I thought of a change to his example, that would make it make more sense to me — 

you’re in the mall with a ton of money — every second you spend thinking about/looking  at something, costs you $1,000

you walk by a window -” that is the most hideous rug I’ve ever seen… ” (cost you $1,000)–  instead of diverting attention from the ‘hideous’ piece, you linger (another $1,000, oh by the way) .. ‘I would never…’ (another $1,000 of your precious attention-bank) ..’ have you ever seen something so horrible? ($1,000) … 20 minutes later, still staring at the unacceptable item, you’ve invested over 1 Million dollars of attention on this thing that you definitely Don’t want — 

on what you did want, it only took $2,500

why do we spend so much time on what we’re sure isn’t what we want & then act surprised when this we’ve invested so much time in happens.. we’ve paid for it, the universe is just delivering.

for ‘now’

KristinaMari No Comments

when we live in the future
we invite fear

when we live in the past
we invite sorrow

but when we live in the moment
we invite excitement, enthusiasm and innocent wonder

 

(found written on a napkin in my pile of writings/observations)

the world’s a vast vast ocean

confessions of an innocent mind…

The book is a little unconventional in both concept and scope. It’s a coffee table book with a  twist. Each page will be  thick stock or canvas and will hold photographs or drawings with observations/phrases/poems overlaid. The pages currently completed cover topics from love, enlightenment and truth to wisdom, frustration and happiness.

It could be used for browsing page by page or home decorating (made to be position-able to display any art found in the book, as shown). Another option would be to download current (and future) pages for your digital photo frames.

Work has also begun on a newer more conventional book that will also incorporate observations and artwork where appropriate. 

If you have ideas on other creative ways to use my work, let me know!
