A beautiful old home, love those pillars, right in the middle of downtown.
Window shopping, I caught my daughter's reflection in this vintage mirror on a radio?
Another window shop item a heart shaped bird cage, had fabric wrapped around it.
Today, I had an art date with me, myself and I and my daughter. She is an honor student and
I allow her, 1 day to take a frazzled day off. We needed to recharge our batteries; seems like
we have had a lot of colds, allergies and flu threats going around. I was going through some boxes
and found a book, called The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. I have glanced at this before...but at the time we were moving and there was too much going on to settle into the mindset of exercises to free my artist. I have moved 17x in 25yrs...lots of sorting, packing, unpacking, shoving and tucking things here and there.
This time I plan to commit to the exercises in this book. You need to write in the morning get the cobwebs out and then there are art dates. Today was the day...
I have been doing the morning pages, yesterday, I wrote about feeling like a magician. I need to pull a rabbit out of a hat. Lately, I am struggling, no place to do the crafting, i want to do. The support is wavering, sometimes fine, sometimes what are you doing? Then the self doubt moves in . I'm moving onward; my inner voice, is begging me, too.
Whenever I haven't listened to her, ( my intuition), it hasn't gone well.
A bad car accident one time, another, trying to cross an island causeway, when the tide was coming. We tried to hike around an island ; I had read the newspaper and the time of the high tide...well, it came in faster then we expected. This wasn't my idea and I didn't want to go..I should of listened to my inner voice.
So, here are a few pics, I really wanted to go a few more places, but ran out of time. Next time
I'm going to this shop it has a home feel vibe, lots of felting items and this old desk has
tiny draws, with wonderful scented candles inside and the owner makes homemade lemon poppy seed soap. Then there is new chocolate shop, with a showcase of delectable gems, regular and sugar free. I love English toffee; I know someone was disappointed, we didn't make it there.
It was really cold and it started to rain, so we finished off our art date with a cappuccino and hot chocolate with whip creme. It was just what the intuitive Dr ordered!
