How Introverts Make Friends

  1. Dogs* count as friends.  (*includes all non-humans, animate or inanimate, imaginary or real, alive or otherwise.)
  2. An extrovert found them, liked them and adopted them.
How Introverts Make Friends

This was posted ↑ this way on Reddit and re-created for under1000skies with the *details after reading several comments by cat owners, and others. =)

Are you an introvert?  (If so, put your hand up, then quickly down again.)  Me too.  Some of the most interesting people I’ve never met are, or were, introverts.  Jane Austin, Albert Einstein, Dr. Seuss… (An extensive, and delightfully surprising, list of more introverts is here).

The internet is the perfect place for introverts.  Finally, we can unite (separately, in our own quiet homes.)  Go to any social media, and we have our own hashtag.  For example: #introverts on Tumblr.

Well met, dear introvert, and Happy Monday (fun day) to all, intro-, extro- and ambiverts (balanced between both).  I hope that this re-created graphic made you smile today.  If you are an introvert, here’s a fun test.  “What kind of Introvert are you? (Mine was “healer.”)

The Champion- very smart, unique, and has a vast intellect that helps them to create and invent
The Artist- non-conformist and multi-talented with an eye for change and natural expression
The Mastermind- determined, strong and inspiring, while also very guarded and private
The Protector- emotionally complex, social, outgoing, kind and yet paradoxical
The Healer- understanding, spiritual, altruistic, calm and relaxed
The Architect- knowledgeable, hands on, intuitive, and enjoys teaching others

Starting today, I’m going to do an audio version of the posts both here, on Niki Flow and on Grammy Miami.  The first two are so that my husband (or anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to read) can enjoy these too; the last is so I can send the link to my daughter for my beautiful granddaughters.  My husband travels a lot and is my biggest fan, but he doesn’t often get a chance to read during the day.   This way I can send him the link and he can listen while driving.  The audio isn’t the best here, but we have better mics to be installed soon.

Tell Us a Story

under1000skies story

The theme for February and ongoing throughout 2018 is “storytelling.”  We are always looking for your story, poetry, photo and art submissions.  Here’s the Submission Guidelines post from earlier this month:  Tell Us a Story.

Changemaker JohnnyO

John Olander

JohnnyO of Denver and Nicole Huguenin, (Dream Together) one of our most generous contributing photographers.

Big shout out to JohnnyO in Denver who has some amazing stories to tell (coming soon).  Johnny was recently featured in Channel 9 KUSA Denver News reading one of his poems, Climb Again.  When I spoke to John on Tuesday, he told me some wonderful news. He has secured a venue in Denver for two different Gallery shows which will feature the art and writings from under1000skies. One show will be in March and and the other in June.  These venues are quite expensive and exclusive but Johnny was able to get the venues pro bono!  This is amazing news.  Johnny has been passionate about helping spread the word about under1000skies since he learned about us a couple of years ago.  As more information becomes available, we’ll share it here with you.  Kudos to Johnny O and deep bows of gratitude for your enthusiasm, kindness and creative vision.
