The Artist's Way

For the record, I am not a visual artist. I wanted to get that out of the way up front.  But I do well in a creative atmosphere, and right now - I have nothing but time.

A while back I got the book, "The Complete Artist Way" by Julia Cameron. It is basically 3 books in one.

"The Artist's Way" - Cameron's original, groundbreaking twelve-step program, the essential first step on the path to creative.

"Waling in This World" - Part Two of Cameron's course of discovering the creative self, which shows readers how to inhabit the world with a sense of wonder and how to use this new found awareness to create meaningful art.

"Finding Water" - For the artist who has established a footing, a text that reveals the tools necessary to sustain artistic vision through the years.

I figured, I could finally brush the dust off this book and give it a whirl. I thought this might be part of that enrichment I have been hoping to have time for.

Also, I finally reopened "The Happiness Project." Somehow, someway - I was able to get over the hump and dive back in. I began enjoying it again. What I find interesting, for whatever reason, I am reading so much fasting and actually retaining more information. I think, and I am sorry to say, but my former job took up soooo much space in my brain, that I must have been mentally exhausted.

That's a positive, for sure.

It's another day, Wednesday morning, and I actually have a friend coming over for coffee. (She is a friend of my husband,) but she and I should have a lot in common to talk about - for one we are both American and both were married to Arabs. THIS should be therapeutic. ;-)

Other than that, I will send off at few more resumes today, possibly organize my shoes (I have TONS), and give myself a facial. I have such a busy day. ;-) LOL
