The Artist Way: Week 5
This week was all about “Recovering A Sense of Possibility.”
I really connected with one of the readings in the book about “finding the river”. It really resonating with my life as I work towards different projects. I feel like things are happening and moving and changing even beyond what I can see, taking me to projects, ideas and opportunities beyond my current life. Beyond my job, beyond my blog, beyond Portland? I think this means I’m learning to be more open. Progress.
This week I had a lot of success. I did my morning pages every day. I did most of the exercises in the book. And I took an Artist’s Date. This week the date was more about inspiration and just spending some time alone, than creating. I walked the entire length of Hawthorne Blvd. It was nice to shop at my own pace, only looking at the stores I was interested in. My only rule was no podcasts. I have a tendency to check out when I’m listening and I wanted to be present in the moment. I came up with some new ideas for my living room, looked at some Super 8 Equipment and considered buying a beautiful Royal Blue Coat (Didn’t quite fit right).
I’m beginning Week 6 now “Recovering Sense of Abundance”. I’ll be focusing on a major road block for a lot of people, including myself: money. It warns this week may feel volitile. Oh ohh….
