artist's way reflections: week 9

October 29, 2008

I’m posting my reflections earlier this week because some of this material has been sticking with me a lot. To mix it up, allow me to offer a few quotes from the chapter that captured, and troubled, me: The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to […]

artist's way reflections: week 8

October 25, 2008

This week has been filled with one of life’s creative blockades — half of our family has been sick. So, I don’t have time to offer a reflection. But for the sake of consistency, here are a few quotes from the chapter I found helpful: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein (pg […]

artist's way reflections: week 7

October 17, 2008

I haven’t posted any reflections on The Artist’s Way for the last few weeks. Please don’t tell anyone.

Some of the reflections from the reading this week have been helpful to me, especially when it comes […]

the artists's way collective: week 6 hub

October 6, 2008

The Artist’s Way Collective is nearing the halfway point as we begin week 6 today. I’ve stuck with it, but I’ve lost a little steam. It appears I might not be the only one as the general activity has slowed down this past week, so I thought it would be good for a check in. […]

artist's way reflections: week two

September 12, 2008

I admire, and crave, the freedom my children have when it comes to expressing themselves. My oldest daughter doesn’t need to be called an artist to color, or a ballerina to dance. My younger daughter doesn’t need to be called a soloist to sing, or a comedian to crack a joke. Creatively expressing themselves is […]

artist's way reflections: week one

September 5, 2008

I’m trapped in the irony of this situation I have created for myself. Now that almost 20 others have taken up the invitation to work through the Artist’s Way together, I’m feeling the heat to be a good participant myself. Said irony is provided by this week’s topic — Recovering a Sense of Safety. Dwelling […]

the artist's way collective: an intro

August 2, 2008

Three years ago, I worked my way through The Artist’s Way at the recommendation of a friend. The book make a strong impression on me. As I am entering into a new season of life, I’ve decided to go through it again this fall. I think it would be fun and meaningful (and beneficial!) to […]
