Ode to Dr Suess: Ding-Dong, Ring-Ring

Santa, grant me one wish
Well, its that time again…….

I’m dusting off ornaments,

untangling a ball full of metal fishhook hangers from each other

and uncurling ribbons on those (damn) wreath bows.

I think it might be time to go shopping.

Ode to Dr Suess: Ding-Dong, Ring-Ringbells

Ding- dong, Ring- ring

all the bells are RING-ING!!

People shuffling,

cash registers opening.

Boy! All those entrepreneurs are “hoping”…

All those folks out there, being “customers”,

AND BUYING stuff up!

and UP!

AND  UP!!

~~

They shop and don’t stop

SAY WHAT?

JUST WHAT??

Just what could THEY POSSIBLY BE THINKING??? dreamstime_4580511

~~

Inside every customer

is a mind that is

thinking ….

and THINKING!

AND THINKING!!!

THINKING to fill ITS own voids,

and center its being.

~~~

Customers buy to be happy, and satisfy

their worth.

AND customers especially treasure artists, for their gifts,

BLESSED at birth.

~~

We love, we laugh,  we cry,

WE UNWIND……!!!

We harden, we age, we narrow,

WE WHY????

~~

Ding-Dong, Ring-Ring, customers nearing!

Take niche to find thrive, hurry up, there’s still time!

GO AHEAD, follow the signs to give your customer a ride–dreamstime_8300737

On the ARTWAVE  you know, well.

YOU KNOW?  The one  YOU CAN RIDE!!

You ride to find niche for your customers, who will buy!!!

And BUY!!

AND BUY!!!!

~~

What they pay for is YOU, to teach them to GLIDE.

To glide on the ride that, YOU KNOW how to ride.

Perfectly.

The one that produces Your  OWN version of THRIVE.

We RIDE. We thrive. THEY Ride. They Glide

We all simply enjoy

as we all simply ride.

~~

But do you remember the day, YOUR art called your name????????

It TICKLED your funny bone, calling to YOU, Outloud AND BY NAME!!

Go off in your sleigh with A Plan,

BECOME AN Artistic missionist!!

Your future,  it awaits you, its only begun.

Your art wave will take you, anywhere,

quite far and far flung!!

..as long as you ride it, AND SHOW OFF  ITS FUN!
