"...like all artists, I would thrive more easily with companionship,
with kindred souls making kindred leaps of faith."
- Julia Cameron's "the Artist's Way"
A year ago on a frosty evening, my friend Mary and I walked into the Art Association ready to attend a class that we hoped would inspire us... and it did. I have now learned the discipline of writing three morning pages and to gift myself with a weekly Artist's date. Within those accumulated pages a safe place exists for me to care for all the things I do not completely understand... each morning, on each page, I make my own small leap of faith. And when I come to my final word at the end of page three, I realize I have somehow been divinely led into rest and peace. Most often my final words each morning are: Thank you.
