Kal Barteski’s blog was one of the very first I followed. I found it by way of Katrina while I was still in Peace Corps. Kal is an artist, a creative spirit and an amazingly positive person. Her mantra of having a bullet-proof positive attitude has gotten me through a lot of tough times. I often forget the notion, but am always happy to be reminded when her blog comes up on my Google Reader.
Reading Kal’s blog reminds me of my love of creating and all things artistic. Her art projects are beautiful and beautifully inspiring. She writes with a quick sense of humor and humility.
I have to admit that reading a blog written by someone I have never met (and probably never will) seems sort of odd at times. Sometimes Katrina and I will say things like, “Did you see Kal’s pregnant? So exciting!” or “Did you see Kal’s new project?” as though she is a close friend of ours. I suppose that’s the age that we’re in… and I should celebrate the fact that I get to have some sort of relationship with people like Kal.
Kal’s doing a new project starting this week called ‘Nurture Your Creativity + Be Bulletproof.’ It’s an online class that teaches how to be both creative and bulletproof. I would love to do this, but haven’t signed up yet. I need to ask Jesse if it can be an early Anniversary or Christmas present…
We need more people like Kal on our little Earth and I’m so glad she’s reaching out to teach others how to live life with a greater amount of creativity and positivity!
