The rain is freezing on the patio tonight and I’m cozy inside with my husband and our two cats. I’m still in the glow of Thanksgiving. My gratitude for my life overflows in an endless list of goodness.
Currently, I am relishing the creative use of my mind and imagination through my diligence with Mark Bryan, Julia Cameron and Catherine Allens’ stunning book, “The Artist’s Way At Work: Riding the Dragon – Twelve Weeks to Creative Freedom.” It was published in 1998 and I have been working through all of the thinking and writing tasks since April 28, 2013. At last I am ready to do it justice. It has been on my bookshelf for ages but I wasn’t up to it until this year. Rather than spending a week on a chapter, I have been taking all the time I need–works out to about a month on each chapter–to make sure I don’t miss a thing.
“Safety is what our censor gives us in a backhanded way. Our Censor is like a crossing guard who tries to march our thoughts in orderly rows “for our own good.”….Giving the Censor time off is a learned skill” is currently affirming and inspiring me.
