can we meditate with you 4 The Shticks

I just started with meditation. I’ve done it in the past but I have never gotten past the part where you patiently wait for your thoughts to quietly go away and you experience complete silence. I want that so bad! I can never get rid of my mind chatter and the constant singing a song in my head.

I don’t have a lot of time to read a lot of stuff about meditation so I’m doing it slowly and with whatever time I have. I want to learn it the proper way so bad! I want nirvana! I want oneness with the universe! I want answers!

But maybe you have to be a 9-year-old to reach nirvana fast like that. And maybe you do snap out of your 1 minute trance and scream blissfully, “I’m doing it! I’m doing it!”



Veronica Shticks Anderson grew up homeschooled between two worlds: American and Brazilian, which taught her to appreciate both obvious and subtle differences in diverse peoples, cultures and languages. She created “The Shticks” in her mid-teens to satirize and just plain poke fun at real life situations that she found humor and inspiration in.

Veronica taught English for 13 years at one of the most prestigious languages schools in Brazil (Yazigi), founded a seminar company and studied marketing, photography, graphic design and video-making but her passion has always been portraying real-life situations with minimalistic characters.

Through the years Veronica refined The Shticks from her youth’s sketchy stick people drawings to more stylized characters who depict not only humor but also wisdom, cultural, social and spiritual stories. She uses photo-manipulation and videos to aid in putting The Shticks in creative settings for her stories.
