Sometimes the only way to get someone to tell their story is to share yours first.



 I’ve been writing stories and thoughts and reflections for as long as I can remember. Over the years I see how many patterns and experiences occur that shape so much and I wanted one place to put it all together. Whatever I create, whether it be strings of words or paintings or prayer candles, I wanted to have somewhere to keep it for my family to remember and know me. 

I wanted a place that stories can be shared with memories that it compel others to think of their stories and their memories on this journey called life. To just exhale. 

Be who we are. Learn. Grow. Create. Find love. Seek peace. See Grace is every way you can. It’s a magical thing really. When you find ways to share stories that help others share theirs and find out we were all just playing the game and not being REAL. Real fun. Real true. Real people. 

So live and Laugh and love. I am not always good at that. My stories can show that clearly. I keep sharing anyway. 

As far as the name of this digital place of randomness with intention, Oh Hey Heather became a thing when I noticed that more often than not I’d hear the common welcome of my presence, ” Oh Heyyyyyyy Heather….” seemed to be the greeting that stuck with me. It always feels nice to hear. 

Life is happening. I pray we all enjoy every moment we can while we try to figure it all out.

Sorry Virginia, there’s no Santa Claus.

| Heather | No Comments
About ten years ago, with Christmas quickly ahead of us, my husband made the decision that Santa was not getting the credit for big ticket items any more. He simply decided he didn't care what other people think. We worked really hard to be able to afford that our two sons received their biggest wish of all - A Nintendo DS - and doggone it, they're going to be from us. He went on to explain that all the little stuff and stockings and what not can be from some guy named Santa but he wanted them to know we provided those Nintendo DS's. Yikes. I was nervous about his ask yet open to a further discussion. I agreed with…

Michigan, who knew?

Apparently most of the people in my life, that's who. Rough outline of the journey up Now. We get it. Pretty cool up north. You gotta see it yourself. Pictures don't explain that this is really what clear water can look like. I've seen similar in Cozumel but not that calm, and I wasn't dozens of feet above it in a boat still seeing the clear bottom. My goodness. The awakened me of course says, please dear God don't let us eff this one up with pollution too. If we haven't already. Please. What beauty. We heard and verified online that Lake Superior is so full of natural water for the globe, that if you spilled it out, it would…

You think we should rethink?

| Food for thought, Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments
I am not sure if I had any type of epiphany, but the thinking within myself propelled me to put down my paintbrush and start writing it down before it escapes my ever fleeting brain streaming. Had to hard save it I guess. I was thinking of activism and the cultural laws we follow as a society. Perhaps its at that core of the issue that we indeed find a way for majority care is some of the most disparate, horrific and tucked away behaviors that lead and have led to generations of inhumane torture of the mind, soul and body. Could this be it?! Let me roll. At first, I was going to dive in by showing pictures of…

Giving Prayer a Shot

| Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | 2 Comments
About a year or more ago, I realized I wasn’t showing gratitude to God as well as I was for a while and that perhaps that was the reason I was so miserable at work and regressing back into stress health issues. It hit me square in the face like, duh! I bought a traditional prayer candle and kept it front and center in my kitchen, which is open to the living room and where I spend most of my home time. It reminded me every time I was home that I needed to light it and say something. Anything. It made a difference. It brought me back into a regular, casual relationship with God that I thought I already…

Finding new connections

| Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments
Oh imagine the irony of it all. I had lunch with someone and she was so delightful and we get along so well and she gave me all these advanced, intelligent suggestions on how to leverage my art and let more people see my fun. Top of the list I wanted to check out further was this online place called Spatial and it's a virtual art gallery that people then can enter and see all of your art in one place and I thought that is phenomenal! It's neat! It's a new way of storing your art and displaying it! How fun you know it gets into deeper stuff like all the NFT's and what not. So yeah. Worth a…

Picking Our Poisons

| Heather | One Comment
I can't shake the dread in my heart and mind for what has happened to us all because of the explosion and burn pit epicenter that's called East Palestine. I'm sick of plastic. Why do we need so much of it? If there's anything those Greta children and Bernie hippies should consider, it's not natural resources killing us and our planet. It's the chemical laboratories using carcinogens to us and earth in the name of progress and profit. Sure, I won't argue that some plastic inventions save lives. Got it. Check. I'm saying do we really need it in every single facet of our lives and what society says we need to have successful lives? It's fricking everywhere. It's not…

Signing Employment Contracts

| Heather | No Comments
I've been reflecting somewhat on all my past employee contracts I’ve signed over the years. When you sign employment agreements, they can really start to get technical. Seems the more complex the title they want to give you while under the contract brings with it more contractual understandings in the form of policies and termination grounds if the contract isn’t fulfilled. One of my favorite things that come with title descriptions when applying for employment contracts is “And other duties as assigned by employer” I think about that. When you agree to an employment contract that comes packed with dress codes, pay schedules, behavior policies, social expectations, and a list of what your expectations are going to be, there’s that…

Turns out I love Jesus and birds

I just realized something about myself that made me stop and laugh out loud with the epiphany. Y special career spidey-skill tends to be connecting dots to identify trends to build patterns to influence the behavior to sway in the way of the company. I promise, it’s always authentic and true – if I know we can’t fulfill a brand promise I don’t say it. I am rather proud that I pretty much navigated out of the media side of all my years and passion for that very reason and challenged myself to apply it to other value propositions instead. So I write plans and work with teams to figure stuff out and get the plans implemented versus doing so…

A Truck Full of Monkeys

| Heather | No Comments
I remember when I saw this headline last summer, my first thought was, "Why isn't anyone talking about the fact that there was a truck trailer of 100 monkeys? Monkeys that you would only maybe see a handful of at a zoo you paid to view?" a HUNDRED Monkeys. On a truck trailer. Just cruising down the Pennsylvania turnpike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYFYxcGTc5g First reason that is way odd to me is there's this thing called the AZA. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums. AZA is the independent accrediting organization for the best zoos and the best aquariums in America and the world, assuring the public that when they visit an AZA-accredited facility, it meets the highest standards for animal care and welfare.…

Imperfect Sunglass Art

| Heather | No Comments
I like to make things. By 'Things' I mean that. Things. I'd like to hope they're defined as artful things. Maybe it's glue or nails or paint or paper and sometimes all the above. I like to try new things to make new things from old things. I read about a Japanese belief called Kintsugi. 'Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. It is similar to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.' It wasn't…

Getting my words in order

| Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments
Alot of the words I write don't ever go past drafts. Sometimes I just type and go and see what happens and then when I go back to it I realize it's done it again. It went there. I get it. I got this weird knack for adding a long tail to the kite. Sometimes when I see how things connect to each other, it lights up for me and I guess it can throw people off cause it's not obvious. I don't know why. I spent a long time denying it was anything more than luck. I'm not always right either. But gosh darn it, it's pretty flipping good. When I learned what batting averages meant and how high…
