I had the pleasure of sitting down with Blake Loates, the artist behind the art installation, We All Believe in You (WABIY). WABIY is a project that captures portraits of people with mental health issues, on display at the Art Gallery of Alberta, May 2nd, 2016, 6:30-9:00. Open to the public, at no cost. The goal of the project is to celebrate the people who participated in the photos and celebrate the strength of the participants.
Do you know that only 8% of people who make resolutions are successful? By the time the second week of January hits, ¼ of us who made goals have already abandoned them. It’s not that we don’t have good intentions, or go about the resolution itself, but rather, how attainable the goal is. In my experience if you can’t measure it, it’s not a very good resolution; vague goals beget vague resolutions. Resolutions. I hate that word.
