Ever tried making a 7-foot-long fiberglass banana with eight insect legs?
What about repurposing an abandoned pay phone into a positivity portal that delivers a joke, a ridiculous dance request or some encouraging words for absolutely anyone who picks up the beaming yellow receiver?
Sounds like a strange dream or the fantasy of a 5-year old, doesn't it?
But in Ryan McGuire's world, a limitless imagination combined with a rigorous anti procrastination discipline and a mad scientist mentality results in a playful world for joy junkies or anyone craving a jolt of possibility or polka dots amidst an ordinary day.
And this creative dynamo, founder of a burgeoning community arts organization, photographer, photo shopper, web designer and all around wild man, Ryan McGuire, is our guest expert in The Life Feast this month.
Because in a world dominated by deadlines, routines, to do lists plus the daily drudgery of life...
Did you know January is known as the looooongggest month of the year?
Ok arguably, at 31 days, it's actually not longer than December or August, but without all of the holiday hoopla or sunny summer days, it feels long!
And the joyless January feeling actually is so common, that, yesterday, was not only the revered MLK Day, but, to psychologists, it's also known as BLUE Monday.
Between the holiday credit card bill, a lot less sunshine, a fall off of resolutions (hello ice cream!) and all the twinkly lights tucked away ... January can feel longer than any other month.
But I've got the antidote.
It'll calm your mind, invigorate your spirit and help you feel more JOY.
It's part positive psychology pep talk, part creativity, part journal, and it's exactly what mid-winter January blahs call for.
