AWE Manac Fuller Brush Man

Posted on

An exercise from the Awe-Manac: a daily dose of Wonder by Jill Badonski . Today is the birthday of Mr. Fuller, founder of Fuller Brush. You might have to be as old as me to remember the Fuller Brush Man’s visits.  What did happen to those great brushes?  But here is my creative exercise.. unedited. I am modelling that poetry can be published, no matter how bad it is, because a blog is considered ‘published!”  How fun is that?  Actually, I am modelling that no matter what form it takes, giving yourself moments to access playful creativity is empowering, brave, and adds precious moments that can easily be appreciated in your day. 

AND this took me back to precious moments in childhood, to boot.

Fuller Brush Man,
             Suitcase in Hand,
Tips his hat to my Mother,
   And off runs my brother,
But I like the nail brush,
   I watch with a hush,
“It’s magic!” he said,
    or was that just in my head?
“Always new! Never falls apart. NEVER!
It will last forever and ever!”
Mom says ‘I’ll take it’, the room fills with laughter.
I know Brush and I will live Happily Ever After.

“The Awe-Manac. A Daily Dose of Wonder” I get to be in awe of me!

Hot off the presses, this is THE book for all of us souls wanting to live life creatively, and awefully.  oh, wait. That didn’t come out right!   Must be the influence of this very funny and powerful book.


I am in AWE!  And from the looks of things, I get to be in awe every day of the year.   And I don’t just get to be in awe of Jill Badonsky, her humour and her brilliant ways of inspiring…. the person I get to be in AWE of every day is me.  Imagine that!  A ‘creative’ in awe of herself!  Who would have thought?  And it won’t even feel like work because each day  I will be enchanted by whimsical artworks,  and inspired by aha-phrodisiacs, doses of mirth, and journal juju’s.  I am a life coach and creativity coach.. I’m a darn good judge of books that work.  This is one of the best.  The other best is Jill’s too.


What makes Jill’s books stand out in any crowd is well… everything.   Soooo, to focus on one thing only for the moment , Jill knows we are human.  We have our ups and downs and we lose our glasses, and we make ‘mistakes.’    Jill knows how to guide a process that makes us feel darn good about that. 


Seriously… if you are a person who is connecting with my blogs and my work, you are very likely a person who deserves to give yourself ‘The Awe-Manac’ for Christmas.  Now away you go.. have a look at this hardcover treasure!

Get this.. it's too good not to.
