Lemonade and Seashells — dream big and live large — at any age


soul collage card hands making

The Lemonade and Seashells blog is my place to write about re-visioning life and defining a fresh career path. You’ll soon see that my perspective is one of positivity. And there’s not much in my life that escapes some form of art-full embellishment.

Five years ago, on an ordinary Tuesday evening, while the frozen blueberries melted in the bag of groceries from Trader Joe’s, my life took an unexpected turn. I soon recognized that I was at a crossroads and had a choice: buckle under the duress or … see my future as an opportunity that was ripe for reimagining. At the time, nothing was clear, of course. And maybe that’s the point.

Artist and all-around creative Danny Gregory says it well in his blog post here — figuring out how to deal with life’s change-makers and how sharing builds community and buoys us all. I hope Lemonade and Seashells will give you a lift, if only for the time it takes you to read a blog post. But maybe even longer!

P.S. If you are inclined to read through the archives, all content posted prior to August 2016 was published under the blog names “my artful life” and “Lisa Allen Lambert.”

Lisa, it’s Jean from the back yard at 35 Pine. You sound like you are doing well. How’s your mom doing? I wrote her recently from Culebra, a small island off Puerto Rico but no answer. Hope she is OK. Jean

A cup of tea in a china cup, memories of my Mom letting me choose which cup. The tea always tasted so much better!
