If we go down into ourselves, we find that we possess exactly what we desire. Simon Weil
The Artist's Way Trilogy, specifically, Finding Water. (How perfect is this?) The author, Julia Cameron, leads the adventure, sharing her experiences and encouraging us, her readers to carry on, BE THE ARTIST. I am convinced that this whole world needs to pick up these books, or even just one of them, and just do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. Morning Pages have taken on a luscious quality: I am having so much fun with my own self! Even Emerson is getting into the rhythm of this, cuddling and smooching, heaving Labrador sighs, and settling for breakfast when I am completely done.
- Water everywhere.
- My chickens.
- Luna's spots.
- My nose.
- Pumpkin muffins, with fresh ginger.
I love the kittens hung on the line. Of course, they are in socks, which this photo doesn't show. None of them are suffering, in fact, they are having fun, maybe. This morning I put the dogs in their crates so that they would stop racing around and getting my bed and everything in the house topsy-turvy and wet. The quiet was astounding and delightful. Just think of your crate as a sock hanging on the line in the soft, spring sunshine.
Just sit on it. From the book, "Bounce Your Body Beautiful, 6 Weeks to A Sexier, Firmer Body."
Last List for Today:
- Sit on it, and not fall off. Commence bouncing.
- Walk, rain or rain. Each dog.
- Paint: start a new one.
- Write something (more).
- Clear off this desk (all the way).
- Sew the borders on the quilt.
- Laugh maniacally
