a reprise of hot stuff: part 1

I’m in a whirling creative vortex these days and when it spits me out, I’ll have new love and strategy in my arms for you:

This is a good time to scan the White Hot library for some best-of’s that you may have missed or adored. Please dig in.

THE ASK A FRIEND SURVEY

I get a lot of thanks for this one. Have you ever asked a good friend what they think of you? Take a deep breath and just send it.

QUOTES
I passed a thousand signs
looking for my own name.

- Johnny Cash

When I first launched White Hot Truth, I regularly ran other people’s inspirational quotes, poetry, and lyrics – Johnny Cash to Rumi (wouldn’t THAT combo make for The Man of All Men?!) I have a collection of beautiful clips here – explore.

Sending Love from The Lab of Inspired Pragmatism.
