I walked into a coffee shop that I was scheduled to do a show in mid February only to find out it had been sold to a new owner. Instead of being worried, I was actually relieved. Just the night before I was asked by someone if I could hang a show on short notice. In fact, within a week, I had two new places to hang my work, Java' Joes on Rodeo in Santa Fe NM and Rose Chocolatier in Los Alamos NM. Wow!
One of my recent mantras has been, "Things have a way of working out." By that I don't mean that things always work out in a great way. They don't. However, for me it has been a call to not react with worry, control, panic when things go awry. Exercising some patience, remaining open, looking for other possibilities in almost always more productive than a primal scream!
