...oh yeah, but that's not what I sat down to say.
A few weeks ago, my dear friend Ruby sent me a copy of Julia Cameron's new book Finding Water: the Art of Perseverance. I had to laugh when I read the title because, well...if you've been reading my blog for the past year or so, you probably already know just how perfect the timing is for this book! Do I believe in a supportive universe? Yes!
Last January I joined Leah and a large handful of others in blogging The Artist's Way. Let me just say that it was an incredible experience. Being a part of that group has impacted my life in more ways than I expected. It helped me survive grad school with my Self intact and, through a growing circle of connections, it is how I came to know many of you. For both of those things, I am thankful.
In many ways this past year, for me, has been a lot about overcoming fear. It has been about perseverance. And it has also been about finding a supportive network of friends and fellow artists. Because blogging The Artist's Way as a group was such a positive experience, Leah and I would like to ask you to join us in journeying through the pages of Finding Water: the Art of Perseverance (and in case you're wondering...Finding Water is a 12 week commitment very similar to The Artist's Way in terms of morning pages, artist's dates, ect).
We will be starting the book on Saturday, February 17th
...and you are cordially invited to join us!
If you're interested, please check back (and in the meantime, go get your book!). There will be a Finding Water blog link coming soon where, as Leah pointed out in her post here, we will be creating a list of blog links for anyone who is participating (along with an occasional post or group announcement). We'll let you know when it's ready.
ok, but right now the *t word is whispering my name rather loudly. ah-em! I think it's time to get back to work...
