This is very important. NEVER say anything OUT LOUD that has anything to do with living any sort of dream because the consequences will be extreme.
I've been flourishing in the studio, feeling so good, working so hard. Ideas that I've saved up are flowing colorfully onto the panels like a dream. I couldn't be happier and then...I said it out loud. If you say it out loud the forces that disrupt things of this nature hear you even if you say it very quietly. Without warning things just started breaking all around me. I'm serious. It was like I was in a movie. I mean, nobody went to the hospital and everything that fell apart was more of an annoyance than anything else.
Oh I'm still painting, I'm just not talking about how happy and dreamy it all is. I'll post what I'm working on as soon as my computer gets back out of the shop with all of the buttons on the keyboard.
