Sandi Martin
Residing In: Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico
Occupation: B&B owner in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, MX
Yes! Attending Reunion

In my own words for fun:
art, art and more art. I create what I enjoy and enjoy what I create. My works manifest themselves into functional forms of a whimsical nature that support and inspire each other to artistically enhance environments and as personal adornments.

my job:
I own and run a B&B specializing in artist workshops/retreats. I love the very talented, generous, interesting and interested people it brings into my special world.

favorite hot spots:
I am living my dreams. Having worked as a flight attendant for 14 years I consider myself well traveled but am very happy to be living in the tropical environment I envisioned for myself at a young age.

favorite things:
Creating art for me is challenging but the endless possibilities make it an integral part of how and why I enjoy each day. I look forward to the continuing process of learning how to get what I want instead of just getting what I get.

I am thankful for my health, my childhood and spell check. I’m thankful for the sensuous climate of the tropics in which I live. I’m thankful for flip flops and coincidences. I’m thankful for insect repellant and sunscreen. I’m thankful that here people spontaneously break into song like they do in musicals, whistle while they work...that some weeds look like flowers. I’m thankful for 'maybe'.

This is the best time of my life. The process of maturing is an art to be learned, an effort to be sustained. A great thing about getting older is getting your priorities straight. Time is not the enemy. Fear of change is. Getting started, keeping going, getting started art and life, seems the essential rhythm. The art of creating never leaves me, however, I never take myself too seriously.

favorite quotes: READ HERE REFLECT LATER

There are two ways of being creative. One can sing and dance. Or one can create an environment in which singers and dancers flourish. Warren G. Bennis

I'm always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning. Every day I find something creative to do with my life. Miles Davis

"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong."
Joseph Chilton Pierce

"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun."
Mary Lou Cook

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. Henri Bergson

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Maya Angelou

I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.- Carrie Fisher

We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap. --Cynthia Heimel

Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream
things that never were and ask why not. George Bernard Shaw

There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval. George Santayana

If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
- Ray Bradbury

The trouble with the rat race is that, even if you win, you're still a rat.~ Lilly Tomlin

Hi Kristine, I, too, worked at Kerbers'. I started at 12 years of age, I think it was 25 cents an hour, filling the bottles and then transitioned into making sundays! (as well as being the cashier of course) I worked there through high school. Yes, it was an easy walk from Warren Avenue.

I look at these posts and I find it hard to believe we all went to the same school. I had perfect attendance when I graduated....
