I often say that art is a matter of faith. That you have to believe in what you’re doing. You have to believe in the world you’re creating, in yourself, in your capabilities. Leave no room for doubt, petty frustrations, or insecurities.
I also say that it’s all just a matter of hard work. But sometimes you hit a wall. You’ve run out of things to say. You feel void of motivation, inspiration, or courage. What once brought you great pleasure, it’s now a tedious task.
Yes. We need to act upon our dreams, but we must never forget to dream. To hope. To aspire. To believe.

My children and grandchildren have the secret ingredient: imagination! We have to keep reinventing ourselves. We have to stay healthy to be creative and strong. Thank you, Cristian.

Aspiring artists have always been searching for the secret ingredient, for that special trait that makes some artists great. After all, in a way, it goes beyond talent as an innate ability, beyond acquired skill, beyond hard work, determination, or luck.
The secret ingredient is often mistakenly interpreted as having something to do with the struggling artist’s myth. In a way, it does.

Many years ago our daughter signed up for a summer program, excited about the experience she anticipated she would have. What she encountered was quite different, and she instantly knew the program was not right for her. Although she was clear that she should leave the program, my mind was muddied with many confusing thoughts. I didn’t want her to be a quitter. I wanted her to honor her commitments. I felt this might be an opportunity for her to learn to “turn lemons into lemonade.”
Fortunately, a friend came to my rescue and introduced the concept of “re-deciding.”
Have you ever volunteered to do something and then realized you didn’t have the time? Or that your priorities had changed? Perhaps something happened in your life that suddenly made it difficult for you to continue with your plans. You wish there were some way to get out of your commitment! Most…

Under the direction of Amigos de Salud co-founders Nick Morrison, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.C.Ph. and his wife Terri Morrison, R.N., a team of volunteer physicians, nurses, other clinicians and support staff traveled to Matagalpa-Nicaragu this year from August 30 through September 5, 2014.
Non-profit Amigos de Salud (which loosely translated means Friends of Health) is dedicated to providing medical surgical care for veins, vein disorders, Venous Disease and medical supplies to those with limited resources in South America.
“This is grass-roots medical care,” explains Dr. Morrison, co-founder of the Morrison Vein Institute in Scottsdale and the Morrison Vein Training Institute. “It is a remarkable experience for all concerned and embodies a unique one-on-one impact that is difficult to describe,” continues Dr. Morrison. “As medical professionals, we can give back in time and talent to individuals who desperately need our care.”
This was the Morrison’s 24th trip to Ecuador, Peru, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The humanitarian effort comprised a multi-specialty medical team of physicians specializing in Phlebology, venous disease and vein disorders.
CompuDiagnostics, an ultrasound imaging company, also donated time and equipment for this year’s trip and conducted a wide range of ultrasound diagnoses and ultrasound-guided treatments specifically for vein disorders and Venous Disease.
According to Terri Morrison, all volunteers not only donate their time and skill, they also pay for their own airfare, trip expenses and some equipment. Care is provided at the Fara Clinic in Nicaragua. Sutures, operating room equipment, medical machines, gloves, gowns, drapes, antibiotics, dressings, IVs, etc. are all purchased, donated and corporate-sponsored under the auspices of Amigos de Salud. At the end of the trip, any unused supplies are donated to local medical facilities.
