First self-portrait Wednesday. Dreaming, sleeping, enjoying the moment. Actually working down my list, loving the preparations for travelling to teach and thinking about what Valley Ridge will be like. I love new experiences and first-times.
On Sunday I went to a poetry workshop with the wonderful author, Susan Wooldridge. She can get poetry out of a rock. I had a wonderful experience there.
The workshop was held at Innerstandings so the experience was intimate and friendly. We all got to know each other and really listen to what was being said.
Thought I'd throw in a photo of my recent wax medium making project. Some of these blocks will travel with me to Wisconsin tomorrow for my workshop there.
This is what my studio looks like this morning after the packing, shipping and tearing around that has occupied me for the past few days. It never gets back to square one anymore.
Journal pages. My blah blah blah that keeps my wheels turning, keeps me on track and inspired, gives me a place to reflect on the kind of energy I'm creating and the kind of world I want.
I really believe every single person matters when it comes to creating a kinder world where we all can succeed. When I think an unkind thought, it matters. I observe myself here. This is where I meditate, talk with my muse, discover my sticking points.
I'm trying to limit my blog posts to once a week but so far have not been successful at that. Every new habit though starts with an intention and I want to make room in my life for a new project that I will enjoy. The energy for it is building in secrecy. My little big dream.
I'm going to cut back next year on teaching too I think. I'm really beginning to appreciate how it cuts into my time in the studio and my 8 year old inner artist is jealous and wants time to play. So okay, little miss I-gotta-paint. You'll get your way and that's as it should be.
Ripped this image off of the Ffffound site and wanted to share it here because this is how I feel about YOU. xo
