"Filling the well"
There are currently seven different books on my nightstand and I am reading them all simultaneously. I have been devouring words for months and my head is starting to get overcrowded. It is time for some serious self-nourishing, what Julia Cameron calls "filling the well". I have decided to commit myself to the Artist's way for the next 12 weeks. I am most excited for my weekly "artist date". Julia Cameron describes the "artist date" as, "an excursion, a play date that you preplan and defend against all interlopers. You do not take anyone on this artist date but you and your inner artist, a.k.a. your creative child. That means no lovers, friends, spouses, children--no taggers-on of any stripe." I have forgotten that I can not be nourished creatively by words alone, I need to get out there and have a sensory fantasia. Have a little fun and hopefully experience some magic. Here... I... GO!
