Fabulous Friday --Nurture Your Horns Edition


It is going to be a fabulous 2015  because I intend to follow the advice given me by my dragon guide, Rumbelfyre,  around my birthday a few weeks ago:
"Nurture your horns."

He explained that a dragon's horns its unique expression. They announce who that dragon is and reflect what he or she does.
The human application is simple, follow your dreams, desires, wants, wishes, call it what you like. But follow the urge to create, express, be, and do, and do it in the way unique to you. 
Nurture you.

Good or bad does not matter. They are in many ways artificial standards.  If is is right for you and executed in the way best to you, done to the best of your abilities at the time it is done, then it is good.
What anyone else thinks about it is not your concern.

This is in general, of course. If it is how you want to make a living, then get good at it and exploit a market, even if you create that market yourself. The standard may still be artificial, but it's the one you have to hit in order to make a living.

I'll be nurturing my horns this year through drawing, writing, photography, playing with my food, and whatever else comes to mind, because nurturing one's horns is fabulous.

Here's an example:

"Nurture Your Horns" sounds somehow way more fun than "Follow your bliss". Maybe 'cause you can't poke at anything annoying with bliss?

Anyway, great advice!

So now I have a powerful curiosity--which cannot be satisfied--about how a dragon's horn sounds. Not very much like a shofar, I imagine.

Thanks, Crabby. I agree, horns trump bliss.

Mary Anne,who says it can't be satisfied?

Leah, my ear is not strongly enough connected to the otherworld.

Cozy up to an ear tree, Mary Anne. It might just do the trick.

One's path is always revealed in different ways. Great drawing, Leah.

A very Happy New Year!
