Authentic Moments

This weekend I was thrilled to be asked to draw at the Canmore Nordic Centre. Another caricature artist, Mark Cromwell (from Calgary) and I were to draw the top three winners in each age and race category of the 5 Peaks Race. What a great reason to whisk my family off for a weekend in the mountains!

As I was blasting this song while driving through the beautiful rocky mountains on my way to the drawing gig, I felt that huge sense of aliveness that comes when where you are and what you are doing in life feels 100% right.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
—Harold Thurman Whitman
