During the Creative Process
Immersion is sweet.
Be it a book, a painting, or in this case… A Carlos.
Carlos was one of the people that stole my heart while I was in Tuscany.
Kindest eyes ever! Olive grower and puppet maker (as in Pinocchio style carved to look like Carlos himself).
I had a chance to see his world, the things he loved, what his passions were–and let me say, Italians are passionate about everything!
Got to love that!
I’ve been working on my next online course, Timeless Tuscany (another type of immersion, coming in January).
Built over two summers, I visited Carlos both times which meant I was able to take him a small photo book from our first visit together. He was so genuinely touched that it squeezed my heart!
The thing about immersion is it can only mean one thing. You are actually in the present moment! You aren’t multi-tasking, your mind isn’t racing ahead to where you need to be next and you are not handling yesterday’s conversations in your mind.
You are front and center for YOUR LIFE.
Which is where, curiously enough, all the magic happens 😉
Today, make it a point to get yourself totally immersed in something that you love–and see how much you learn about you!
I’d love to hear what it is and how it made you feel inside 🙂
As my buddy Emerson said “It’s not the length of life, but the depth.”
Go forth and immerse!
P.S. Just a note to say we have extended the enrollment opening for Once Upon a Time in Provence per your request (we are still hearing from folks who are now just getting back online after all the terrible weather events!) For info, click here
