It’s your friend’s birthday. She is getting another year younger (we only get younger, deal with it) and you want to give her the best birthday present ever. Well, the best birthday present you can think of this year. There are many things she needs, many things she wants and you might have an inkling of a few of those things. You have a problem though, many of those things are outside your budget, so what do you do?
You stop and think. You could always go with the typical Facebook message. At least then she would know you were thinking of her (even though Facebook had to remind you it was her birthday). That doesn’t feel like enough. You’re already too late to make her a card or buy her a card — or maybe you did, you made her an absolutely lovely card, but you want to do more. This is a special friend, she deserves more. So what can you do?
And then you remember — she is a highly skilled artist and she makes art. You’ve already bought a lovely piece of artwork from her the previous month, you could buy it again maybe. Where would you put it? You are stumped. Well let one, Mr. Green Embers, give you an idea.
You can share your friend everywhere! You share her lovely words to all of your friends. You share her beautiful artwork with all of your friends. You share her lovely videos with all your friends.
It is a simple thing, sharing, but it is the one thing that means so much to us. Nothing says I love you like sharing your friend with the world. I know when I work hard and someone shares that work it makes me the happiest, greenest, person around. I’m like the brightest light bulb shining in the darkness because one of my friends chose to share a little piece of me.
When your friend’s have birthdays, I hope you remember these words of mine and that you take the time to share their artwork with the whole world. We are all artists.
Now a little bird, rather a dinosaur, told me it’s her birthday today! So in celebration of Rarasaur, here are ways you can share her around the globe!
- Buy 10 copies of her book and share them with all your friends
- Find a post that she wrote on her blog, that has personal meaning for you, and share it everywhere!
- Watch her YouTube show (it’s Frightfully Wondrous)
- Share an episode of her YouTube show with your friends, with the world!
- Listen to her Audcast (it’s on Sound Cloud, iTunes & Google Play)
- Share an episode of her Audcast with the world.
- Become a Patrondactyl and help support her artwork for many years to come!
To Ra, may you have a wonderful birthday and many years of growing younger ahead of you. You are special.
