I’m feeling like I’m coming down with a bout of creativity. It is a great feeling. Brightness Calling is wrapping up nicely. I’ll be spending the next couple of days focusing on that.
The new publishing date is September 30th.
In my indie publishing world, where I hold the reins, books are like babies. You’ve got a due date, but, like a baby, sometimes it’s early and sometimes it’s late. I don’t really want a Cesarean book birth. I want my book nice and ready when it’s ready BUT as close to its due date as possible. This baby’s two weeks late.
Enough about babies.
I’m gestating some new ideas. Episode Three is wanting to be written.
But first, or, simultaneously–
I’m about to take a course that uses painting and journaling as a way to go deep into a person’s inner world to explore certain aspects. This workshop is called Legacy, an Initiation in Paint and Land.
Doesn’t that sound yummy?
I’m ready for an Initiation of some sort. Ready to dig around in the roots of my subconscious. Here’s the link, in case you’re ready, too. Just click: Legacy, an initiation in paint and land
I ordered my supplies, what I didn’t have in stock. I’ve a lot of oil paint but not many acrylics. Gave me twitchy fingers looking at all those colors, fondling all those brushes, stroking all those canvases.
My old friends.
Something’s stirring inside me. Something’s that’s hungry for color. Hungry for the images it creates.
But, before I can unleash this “hungry something,” Brightness Calling comes first. That’s the beauty of online workshops. You can fit them in when you’re ready. Such a gift this internet truly is.
Last week, a dear friend came to visit. It wasn’t until I went through my pictures that I realized how much we did together, despite the traffic. Have I mentioned the traffic around these parts? To go 20 miles, it can take up to an hour and a half, longer if in rush hour. Who knew? I certainly did not.
Here’s what we did: Ate. Visited Rainier. Visited a sculpture garden where creatures were made from wood and metal. Went to the Washington State Fair. Saw a Heart concert. (Those two women are amazing. Great role models for us older gals entering our wise woman years.) Ate more. Trammed around at the Northwest Trek amongst bugling elk. Spent several hours at the Tacoma Glass Museum where we watched glass being made and got dazzled by Chihuly’s works. Laughed a lot. Ate even more. Made plans for what we want to do when she next visits.
I leave you with some pictures of Mt. Rainier in all his glorious autumn-ness. Simply magnificent. You’ll notice they’re all pretty similar. I couldn’t stop taking pictures up in Paradise. I’d never seen anything like it. Here you go…breathe it in.
Have a great week, Peeps!!
