Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)

Yesterday I finished my flower-a-day for a year “challenge”*! Even though they only took about 10 or 15 minutes each, it feels like a lot of daily creative energy has been freed up for other things. Am considering making an art print or poster as a celebration/memento. Didn’t keep up with the posts about it,Continue reading “Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)”

Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More

I’m back to my Creativity Journey after a couple days off due to digestive issues and a general feeling of unwell. It’s been a wake up call – to be more discerning about the food I eat, certainly. And after the first couple of days, it’s been feeling like a transitional state, too. A “caterpillarContinue reading “Waking Up and then Waking Up Some More”

Suggested Daily Routine

Suggested daily routine: Find your center. Repeat as necessary throughout the day. 🌼🌼🌼 And since I didn’t post it yet, here’s yesterday’s drawing:

Restoring Energy

Have been resting a lot over the last couple of days and plan to continue. Seeking energy restoration, which perhaps means finding internal reserves, or “natural resources” if you will. I thought it’d be nice, though, to do a recap of my Creativity Journey drawings so far. Day 16 – so a nice number forContinue reading “Restoring Energy”

What Level Are You At?

What level are you at? That’s a bit of a trick question in two ways: a. I’m talking about life, not video games, and b. I don’t think it matters nearly as much as people think. Many people are trying to get to the next level at something. Could be the next level of wealthContinue reading “What Level Are You At?”

On Ritual and a Single-Task Cup of Coffee

Several days ago, I discussed my daily plan for the “creativity journey” I’d just embarked upon. One of the processes I mentioned was “a single-task” cup of coffee. By “single-task,” I mean that it’s about focusing on just one activity at a time – drinking a cup of coffee without adding distractions. Not playing aContinue reading “On Ritual and a Single-Task Cup of Coffee”

The World is a Magical Place

Last evening, I went for a walk. The end point was a beautiful lake, about 2/3 of a mile from my home. The little islands in the lake reminded me of something similar I saw while on vacation in Duparquet, Quebec, CA as a kid. That time, the island was enveloped in fog and somethingContinue reading “The World is a Magical Place”

Is it OK to Be More Positive? (aka, Can I Really Trust in the Universe?)

I sometimes listen to Abraham-Hicks. There, I’ve gone and said it. For those of you who don’t already know, Abraham is considered to be a group of spiritual beings as channeled through Esther Hicks. And yeah, that’s pretty far into the “woowoo.” One of the main themes in their teachings is the importance of learningContinue reading “Is it OK to Be More Positive?
