Tucker, how could you say no?

I've talked about my kids' book a lot because it was the first project I completed. Hot on the heels of completing the Zany Zoo I had someone ask if I had another story they could illustrate. I told him about my story Uckey Sluckey.
How could I say no?

Ola Birch,illustrator of the Zany Zoo, asked if I had a story we could translate into Russian. I brought out Gary The Gargoyle.
How could I say no?

My mom will be releasing her album by the end of the year. She asked if I would do the album layout for her in exchange for studio time to record the Zany Zoo song.
How could I say no?

I've been back in the studio finishing up a five song ep. that should be done by the end of the month. I asked a friend if he was still interested in working an art project based on one of the songs. He said absolutely. I asked a DJ I know if he would do a remix of another one of the songs. He said absolutely. 

A local jazz singer has asked if she could record one of my songs on her upcoming live album.
How could I say no?

All of these things are just waiting to happen. The only thing that can stop them ... is if I ever say no.

I don't have to say the word no outloud. I just have to not do the things that people are ready to do with me. All I have to do is focus on something less important until the time come where all these people don't want to work with me anymore. All I have to do is nothing. 

All the projects I've described above are of my own creation they come from inside me. They make me smile when I think about them. I rant passionatley when people ask how they are going. They are what make me want to keep going.
