Celebrate Everything!!!

My Dear Friends, Thank You For Your Delightful Source of Friendship & Wisdom!



It has been my greatest wish to foster a creative community of practice which allows the space for empowered women to fellowship and support the creative outpourings of each other. And  so I have been steadfast with my community of friends, Circle of Friends International, an inter-generational group that reaches out and uplifts each other.  My friends and I hold dear to Picasso’s words: If I don’t show up at the canvas , there is no muse that is going to come get me.  We have  come to realize that living a creative life requires focused and consistent work. Even when the muse doesn’t show up, we have to work steadfastly  at our practice. There is potency in such a philosophy and with this approach, I believe, comes joy. Joy in experiencing the support and oftentimes, the fanfare of good friends. Joy in the little steps attained & sometimes, the milestones. With my friends and family, I have chosen to consistently create, receive and celebrate joy especially when I have to step upon the rubble of disappointment and move with determination and claim that joy.  As 2014 comes to a close, I am shouting out to my friends:

Let the world see who you are fully, truthfully, and without apology. Take risks and seize the moment to go after your wildest dreams.


This coming year as I move to step boldly onto uncharted terrain I want to do so with full expression of my heart and soul. Instead of a resolution I have whispered a promise to myself, which I share with you now: Celebrate Everything!!!

About Dr. Marvalous!

I am an educator, author, and community/cultural activist of Jamaican heritage, deeply concerned about the way we shape and are shaped by society. How do we engage the resources around us to realize our creative potential? How do we give of ourselves to become the change we want to see in this world? It is my intention to engage an audience in energetic and provocative discussions on these issues. https://www.soundtheabengmarvamcclean.com
