10 January 2018 – Intro

Previous Introduction Page

To balance off my concentration on physical health during the past several years, and also the emotional losses of close family members as the years of our lives flow past, I am returning to the patterns I established while going through Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way and others of her books, over the decades.

Having much less mobility, these days, due to a variety of factors, I am having to find substitutes for the Artist Dates and daily/weekly walks. My sensitivity to paper has lessened, and I now have a Morning Pages journal and a Day Book (thank you, Diane!) So far. the Day Book is not a habit, but I am remembering to jot down such mundanities as who called or came over, what my BP, PR and SpO2 readings are. Tentatively, I will be doing the Everyday Artist’s Way daily prompts and trying out Finding Water. With necessary adaptions.

A change of course, here. All of the posts prior to May 2017 are now private. I suspect that I am going to indulge more in challenges, other than the poetry challenges, which of course will remain at Quilted Poetry.

During November, I participated in a challenge: to write at least one poem each day. Those poems that I made public are now at The Written Word at Home — I hope that you will find some that you enjoy.
