I'm still buzzing from the trip to planet Pollock. It's a world that's different and yet so close -- torrential in a familiar current. It's more than drip, splash, pour. It's ancient, modern, cosmic.

Consider this: everything is created three times. First in thought, then in belief and finally in manifestation. Look around you, pick an object like a chair or even a building. Before it was created, it existed first as an idea or a thought, in someone's imagination

Authors are true individuals when it comes to our art. Our writing may be heavily influenced by our everyday experiences or our vivid imaginations may fuel what we write.

Even now, days later, I find myself considering Riley and her emotions. I think about the end of the movie when she finally opened up to her parents about how she felt. Instead of her parents simply telling her to be happy -- what most of us are told -- they said they feel the same way.
