About

Pam Goode

The Who: Pam Goode, artist specializing in mosaics and writing, rabid traveler, introvert, creative problem solver, philosophical rambler, poet, wife, mother, gardener, scavenger, maker of something-from-nothing, inept potter.

The Why: I’ve always been a dreamer, a planner, a lover of behind-the-scenes workhorse days. Not a bad thing, but, you know . . . passive. And I want (need) to be less of that and more of this: off my ass and into my life.

One day I was browsing a favorite spot, one of those off the wall places that sells a random assortment of miscellanea you rarely think to buy: curtains made from cut-up water bottles, scrumptious cotton pj’s sprinkled with feathery owls, gourmet dog biscuits and dayglo tinsel Christmas trees. I snagged a magnet and marched it straight up to the cashier in one of those moments that caused my daughter to (again) roll her eyes and ask why I would pay $5.00 for that.

It’s pink (of course), and it says “What are You Waiting For?” At 52, those five words became my mantra.

And then I met a woman who called me Fearless. For no real reason that I could hang my hat on — she knew hardly anything about me. But she named me, and she named me Fearless. The word has stuck; my life has become one unexpected step after another, and I giggle every time I think about the effect that one word from a stranger has had.

And so this blog is off my ass, into my life, fearlessly honest and much like my favorite store: one of those off the wall places that stocks a random assortment of stuff you’d never think to buy. But hey, one step after another.

  1. Hi Pam, you have a beautiful blog.. your bio gives me the sense that i will surely enjoy my time here, looking forward to reading more of your posts, Cheers Buddy! 🙂

  2. There’s something you need to know: I am in the midst of a journey with Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Simple Abundance. And I am a dog, so there are some things I can’t appreciate as much as people might. With that, I share with you, person with a blog mentioning hair, that today’s challenge is to embrace one’s hair as a beloved part of their personality. “Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair” – Edith Warton. So well done, blog friend, for respecting a tough thing to love in life. 🙂

  3. hi Pam, thanks for visiting my blog again, and i hope to see you in Tacoma this year, and i’d love to visit Ciel someday. maybe do a workshop. keep on keepin’ on!

  4. Lovely bio Pam just wanted to stop by and say thanks for the like 🙂

  5. I have a whole mess of broken china of various types and colors that I would like to give to some mosaic artist to use. The person I used to give them to apparently has moved. If you, or anyone you know, is intrested, please call 704-372-3936.

    Thanks!

  6. Pamela,
    I just discovered your blog – I am on the yahoo mosaic artists group with you… I have a blog too, I listed it above.

    Working my way back through yours – it’s great and probably b/c I also write and do mosaics, not to mention a basically stream o’consciousness blog, I feel less alone out there as a non-mainstream-thinking person who is still trying to fit in.
