Exploring the Possibilities

Well….here we go….did I say ‘finally’?? August 25, 2011

I’m excited…after months, years of anticipation and numerous halts along the way, I’m off to film interviews for my new pilot trailer, ‘So, What’s Your Story’ featuring terrific entrepreneurs making a difference, combining….here it is…

BEST BUSINESS PRACTICES…

with

PASSION AND CREATIVITY!

I’m working with filmmaker Corey Morrison out of Athens and have lined up a diverse team of three varied entrepreneurs…

the incredible creators of High Road Craft Ice Cream and Sorbet, (in less than one year have their product in Whole Food Stores),

Doris Aldrich, Human Rights Activist who has for 25 years been the driving force behind her nonprofit organization, Women to the World….she’s been working to uplift, educate and empower women in third world countries and locally. You’ll hear more about her soon. She has floored me with her drive, courage and tenacity.

Lastly, I’m interviewing gospel music promoter and tv personality, the fabulous Bobby Hurd. He visited Carl House today and what a treat.

Our filming of this series trailer takes place on Tuesday and then off we go to pitch it to the networks. Our focus, the possibilities that inspire, a courageous and uplifting spirit and people who are paving the way for others.

Oooooh….stay tuned, stay tuned….I’m intending ‘THIS OR BETTER’….’THIS OR BETTER!’

I’ll appreciate your prayers and intentions for the same!

What’s UP??? July 22, 2011

NO KIDDING….Whaaaa’s up man??

I’ve not been writing as much. I’m swirling in a most positive fashion in my current world…with this blog soon to appear on a new Arriving with BB Webb website…with a fresh look and feel.

As I like premier’s (of all sorts), I’ll be premiering it soon, soon.

In the meantime, I feel like a sailor tying up her sails, assuring the decks are mopped and supplies in tact for a riotous sail, just ’round the bend.

I feel a nor’easter coming my way. And after a short jaunt to Maine to see a favorite pal perform, (and enjoying some ‘lobstah’)…..oooooh, the sails will get to blowing cause we’ve got some traveling to do.

And how lovely does sun and wind feel on a smiling face!

Thanks for staying tuned. I promise all good things.

It’s all new….let it be new….it’s all new. June 12, 2011

A band came to play at Carl House last weekend. As the owner, well, it’s not considered kosher to hop into the middle of the dance circle and rock out….but I am a dancer….I was maybe born wiggling and moving fresh from the womb. I need action and movement. And I feel action and movement coming after a long winter’s…..hmmmmm, sleep is not the correct word, but after a looong winter’s having to PAY ATTENTION in ways that don’t come as naturally to me.

But I’m smart and capable in ways, perhaps moreover, tenacious as hell….learning when to yield and not drive every moment, opportunity, urge, feeling that pops forth. Perhaps, to wait a breath to receive a bit more, allow things to softly come to me.

Perhaps you are similar….I suppose I was born a warrior type and acting other ways takes a tremendous degree of mindfulness for me. So, I practice breathing, waiting, seeing what it’s like to let things come to me a bit, while others initiatives I know need my urging….and this I can do easily….it’s how I’m made. Not everyone sings to my same tune and I’ve grown to accept these differences….not to take them all so personally when people don’t glean to this energetic of mine. I’m clearly NOT for everyone. Are any of us??

So, the band that visited Carl House last weekend, Brookwood Split, they have been on my mind, especially the Pointer Sisters song they sing, ‘I’m So Excited,’ as I am….excited….about all manner of things creeping into my view.

I find my sitting high in a high rise in a North Carolina city, appreciating the sun, the time to think, my electronics surrounding me (ahhhh, my new iPad….ooooh the joy), my phone and computer….I can spot check my business, gather all manner of information from around the world, download books, music, communicate with my friends and take pictures to document my journey if I choose. And, to write, book ideas, tv thoughts….business plans. I need this time to visualize as I know when I do, lovely things evolve. Always. ALWAYS! Or better.

As music plays in my ears, it inspires me, to move, yes, physically, but more, to move the ideas which have been and continue to hummm in my ears…..stories are taking shape as is my body which I am plying with new moves, teaching it to do new things. I’m eager to learn to sing better, perhaps new dance classes to see how else to coax my body to move and express what’s inside. I’ve planned a dance party at Carl House next Friday after our wine pairing dinner (please join us)…and I hope we have a crowd ready to romp and play….as I certainly am and this time, the owner WILL rock the dance floor.

‘I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it, I think I’m going to lose control and I just might like it.’ That’s right…losing control is where true creativity blossoms and I’m birthing all manner of explosions. The right time, the right scene, partners be they business, friend or love partners…..there’s just no limit to what any of us can do, create, imagine, manifest, conjure forth or reckon.

I have new eyes. I really do. And they are seeing through my lens clearly. I take nothing for granted and appreciate ALL that comes my way.

It’s my choice….and I’m focusing on all good. Ooooh, this or better God…Universe….THIS or better, please.

So, yes, I’m so excited….and I just can’t hide it…..moving forward with ideas, a big heart, lessons a plenty to guide me. It’s time to dance, create, and damn, have some fun…..

….trust me on this one. And, it’s totally up to you, up to me. You can do it. So, together, let it be new….and let’s get excited!! Travel to new places and baby, let it happen, go on, abandon of the safety zone. Go on now….do it!! I’m there with you! Lead with your heart, use your mind and know, for certain, that in your own way, YOU are perfect!

These ladies know what I’m talking about…..go Cristie, Nika y Natalia!!

With love,

BB new eyes.

 

The Time It Takes… May 30, 2011

I’m wondering a bit at the time it takes to reinvent your world. A tad hard to determine in exact measure, but it certainly takes awhile. And for me, it sets any old routines a-kilter a bit…and frankly, I’m rather fond of ‘a-kilter’. I like creating new, bold strokes, moving with some speed. Yet, this weekend I better understood my need to slow and be present in perhaps a new way to all that is rumbling about.

I had two incidents over the last week and a half where I thought on both occasions that my dogs were gone, one lost and another with an unfortunate dog fight which happened while they were traveling with me in my jeep. Everyone is fine, but drama was clearly afoot.

Bonnie, mama dog, is nearly totally deaf, 15 -17 years old, (the vet and I can’t really say), wandered away just before the LARGE storm we had last week, (which took down huge limbs at my house….one I was concerned might plunge through my large window). She is afraid of storms and was nowhere to be found….all very uncharacteristic. Our electricity was out for nearly 8 hours and I was so sad….thinking how the morning before she left we’d shared pup and mom time in the sun on my back porch. I’m her caretaker and I felt lost in how to recover her. Most of all, I wanted to know she was safe, unhurt…okay. I can only imagine how a parent feels when their child is in danger.

I put out an APB to my neighbors and wandered the area. Then a day and a half later, she suddenly appeared on our porch stairs. I was SOOO happy, SOOOO grateful to see her. WHERE had she been?? I’ll probably never know.

We get used to what we are used to. But, ANYTHING can be taken away without a moments notice. I appreciate my world, my friends, my business and the fine people working in it, the new people coming into my life, the hard lessons, the generosity and heart I am witnessing, I am encouraged. I see light and am feeling a light breeze in my world. It’s been a long time coming. Perhaps that has to do with perspective and attitude as well???

All things come to pass. It’s NOW that excites me. And yesterday is so very much my teacher.

Doggie home, the fighting is over for now, new projects taking shape, an invincible team formulating at Carl House and a grateful me.

‘Under Construction’ is how I feel….a productive, exciting time…moving forward ‘as if’….as if all I, WE might dream possible IS!

The pendulum swings….ooooh, does it!!

Here’s to contentedly swinging along with your OWN pendulum ride!

The Transformation and Creation Begins…. May 22, 2011

Future Hair Professionals from The Paul Mitchell School!!

I love how every new creation starts with a simple thought, idea, amusement in our mind. The terrific folks at the Paul Mitchell School in Atlanta helped with my physical transformation….and there is so much more to come. Special thanks to Tracy DeSimone and her TALENTED students for their enthusiasm for our new projects and for being a part of the ‘Pay it Forward’ process and message we’ll be sharing across the land!!

We’re on our way.

Yeah Jack….Yeah… May 16, 2011

It bares…bears….beeeairs……

repeating….

‘The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”’ -Jack Kerouac

Let it go...let it happen....let it go....

Yeah. Awwwwwww……Roman candles lit….intention laid, (or better God, don’t forget, (inspiration) or better)…..BLAST OFF!

I find myself in immense gratitude this day. If we’ll only trust our sight. And more, and more….

More is full of but one thing in the context I share…life, fullness, living, exploration, abundance, joy, love, freedom.

More is good, better, best.

Ooooooh, please trust me on this one. I’m an explorer….I’ve seen it. Smelled, touched and sunk into it all…..more than once.

I couldn’t help myself.

Oh for the calling.

‘Just trust it,’ I am reminded, ‘just trust it’.

And so I shall.

Watch, and I’ll take you there.

Love, BB

 

The Vulture… May 15, 2011

We’re all quick to judge, certainly at times.

I find myself tucked under a blanket this cool, LOVELY May morning…listening to the sounds in my back forest, activity under cover of green, always exciting, fresh, new, settling to me.

The mighty, transforming powers of the vulture...

I yesterday worked with my favorite healer/massage therapist, Janice Davy. Her combination of disciplines ALWAYS leaves me feeling renewed, energized and grounded in both my humanity and lifted in my spirituality. She is magic. I came to her having hurt my back being overzealous in a new boot camp class I’m taking with the desire to strengthen muscles I’ve not been using of late. My mind took me beyond where my muscles and body were ready.

I’ve worked intentionally with energy before, studied with Dr. Fernand Poulin as did Janice, and I realize it is a tremendous unknown to most of us, yet I have seen mental, emotional and physical hurts shift with its intentionality. Suffice it to say, my body is still on the mend, but I am more rooted in what is happening within me, the shifts I’ve felt coming for years now.

So I watch the many trees in front of me dance with what might be one of the last cool breezes of spring gracing this Sunday morning. Italy was the launch of a great unknown for Lulu and me. And overhead most of this morning, I heard the great squacking of the grand vulture, one I in the past judged most harshly….that evil carrion, feeding off the dead, looming like a harbinger to death. And, perhaps he is, in a manner. Ted Andrews in his book, ‘Animal Speaks’ writes of the mighty, important buzzard, the vulture…

Buzzard-Vulture:
Buzzard or Vulture teaches the power of purification of the mind, body and spirit. Vulture aids accomplishing tasks through great patience and vision, using your sense of smell and discernment, and how to glide and soar with your own energy. He teaches efficiency in actions and promises that changes are imminent. He shows how to restore harmony of thoughts and feelings so one can reach new heights with little effort. Buzzards will aid in uncovering truths, clarifying previous conceptions, and allow to see and hear subtle hidden qualities using intuition and awareness. Buzzard can teach confidence and the ability to stand with dignity and soar with clarity and purpose. He shows how to seek a new and heightened vision while increasing sensitivity. It is time to soar above your perceived limitations. Are you currently undergoing an internal death and rebirth cycle? Are you ready to assert your actions from your ideas? Buzzard will aid in transforming knowledge to bring the unconscious to conscious and teach how to soar above it and bring the transformation you are needing at this time. Are you ready for these lessons of awakening?

So, perhaps this mighty, winged creature is telling me something….surely he is as he soars ably over my back porch with his reminding call. He prompts me forward…he knows where I am headed and the longings which pull me…

‘go there….go where you imagine, and let the wind guide you as it does me. Let go of what is no longer useful….move into what is calling you.’

I am listening. I surely am. I pray for courage, insight, heartful actions in all things and inspiration and luck to buoy me forward.
