    I used to often post "Random Thoughts" to my blog, but haven't in a while. As I'm sitting here in my studio tonight enjoying a Merlot on a RARE night off, I look around at different projects - music, a film I'm directing, web & UX design, notes from a game video score, even a cryptocurrency book - and I'm in Random Mode, so I wonder: how many of you are (to use Emilie Wapnick's term) "multipotentialite"? I'm curious - what multidisciplinary projects are you working on? Don't be shy - post about 'em! :) Donnie Maynard Christianson

    #6 hey Mark, I just followed you. Dude, you ARE into a lot of different stuff - cool!

    Hmm, I think it depends on the person - I've known people who just do that ONE thing and crush it, but if they try other stuff it doesn't work. And vice-versa. I've tried to just do one thing but honestly I get burnt out - I need the variety.

    So I do think if someone is geared for being a polymath, they'll thrive. Trying to follow a single path can be like a straitjacket - when I was touring full-time, I didn't want to look at a guitar after 9 months on the road, and that's how I got into CG. I didn't love guitar any less, but I needed to express my art in other ways.

    One musician I follow (Leah McHenry) says she "works in seasons"; I tend to do the same thing - breaking from music for a month or two to focus on my web businesses (and of course Dec/Jan is the best time to trade crypto and laugh at the BTC-e trollbox... ;). And then sometimes I just take a few months to work on my film.stuff.

    I'll hit you up on the other social media too (my username is circuitscream)

    #7 Thank you Donnie some of the ground work for the characters is here on beBee for the Silver Guardian and Peace Lords.

    Studies have shown that having a form of spirituality in life actually can aid in being more productive in the workplace as those who do often deal with stressful situations better.

    #5 @Max🐝 J. Carter wow, very cool. I'd love to see those works man. You're doing amazing work - IMHO we could all be more spiritual, and so many corporate environments could use better vibes for sure.

    Haha Donnie! We have to connect. We're both "multipotentialites" with the same potentials and interests. For fun, I write, illustrate and animate. I'm also in two relatively successful bands (playing SXSW etc) Outside of that, I trade bitcoin and work as a producer in Los Angeles for live action commercials. The next commercial I'm in talks with is for a point of sale device that accepts crypto-currencies.
    Now I have a question for you - do you think being a multipotentialite is helpful or not? Sometimes I love it, but sometimes I think "man if I just focused on X, would I be more successful?"

    #4 Well Donnie thank you and thank you again for asking. I'm a born Shaman and have had total awareness since birth. I do a lot of working with people in various stages of reaching the proverbial mountain top. In corporate consulting I take spiritual living and put it in corporate speak to create a better work environment.

    The cartoon is going to be an animated series. It's based on a persona I used to use for writing back in my independent film days, The Movie Whore. Film industry people loved the name.

    The script is called The Silver Guardian an is about a dude who keeps god in check and just happens to be assigned to earth in a human body. He is telling his story to a shrink with flashbacks.

    The graphic novel I will publish as it features women characters who are designed to strong characters who are not sex objects and two of them of intergalactic defenders known as Peace Lords. It's set 40 years from now. and the earth is united and defended by the Peace Lords who come from many worlds.

    Let's see, I have a local community project I am putting together called Bard School to give people the education they can understand instead of only waht they can afford.

    I have a script I am working on.

    I have a cartoon I am slowly working on.

    I have a graphic novel I am developing.

    I have a series of lectures I keep updating.

    I have various Shaman activities I engage in daily.

    I have a radio show I am putting together.

    I write a ton as a blogger.

    Thanks for asking.

Although the above sounds obvious, “stop” means to “Stop.” It doesn’t mean to stop at the next place you feel the music should, go on to talk or be a nuisance.

    "We are often confident and floundering at the same time. It is important to remember that we all have our place of genius, where we have something to offer that can grow only from ourselves. We strive to discover the seeds of our true individuality. It is often subtle, a whisper from within that needs time, nurturing, and a degree of challenge for its inward potential to emerge. Faint as it may be, we listen for its distinctive, clear rhythm amidst the confusing cacophony of our illusions, stray desires, and wishful thinking. We search for what is genuinely our own and we work to uncover our latent talents and skills."~ David Ulrich, "The Widening Stream, the Seven Stages of Creativity". I am currently reading this book; the author is a photographer that had an accident while chopping wood and as a result lost one eye. I think you would enjoy the book, as well.

    "My conclusion is not to remove something that is so important to satisfy someone else or something." Yep, @Suzanne Dwillies-Khan, Pharmacist and Musician. There is much science to support the healing of music and we have a world class music therapist in our midst, along with my partner who finds music crucial to instigating and increasing his ability to move even when his Parkinson's Disease symptoms are interfering with his ability to move.

    I prescribe that you take your music dosages every day with regularity. It will help you heal. It will contribute to anyone's healing.
