Before the Creative Process
“It may be when we no longer know what we have to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.” ~Wendell Berry
Just some thought sharing for those of you who may be wondering why you are wandering. Trust in the process of life.
Questions are often times more important than the answers themselves. In our questioning we shake off the answers that were given to us by someone else and open the door to the light of our own wisdom and understanding.
P.S. A brief update for those of you who may have been wondering what I’ve been up to—I wish to heck I could tell you!! I counted up and realized I’ve traveled most of this year (4.5 months). The last 40 days spent in Europe working on…well, there’s the rub…what happened in Europe stays in Europe. At least for the time being 🙂
My most treasured moments by far? The people I’ve met. From the small face of the child who pressed her nose against the window pane to watch me paint… to the perchance meeting of 87 year old Gelsa, widowed some fifty years, who led me to her mountain top rose garden overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Some real. soul. encounters.
And a personal moment on a balcony off the coast of Italy when it hit me that my desire is to live braver and truer.
You with me?
Always a worthy endeavor..heading into the unknown that we might lose our minds and find our souls 🙂
On my travels I picked up a few things. One sweet, petite treasure that I purchased two of. One for me and one for you. An itty bitty journal. Suitable for drawing, watercolors and small but mighty thoughts. It’s handmade leather and filled with luscious Fabriano watercolor paper.
One last thing—my online painting class will be opening up again for new peeps September 6! Over 700 took the plunge in January 🙂 What are you waiting for?? Learn more>>
