Yesterday marked the official start of doing the Artist’s Way. And, par for the course, here I am a day late already!
I’m thrilled to be part of this fabulous Blogging the Artist’s Way group, grateful to Kat for coming up with the fantastic idea (and, truly, creating a moment of synchronicity for me!) and offering to facilitate it (while also doing the AW – wow! I’m in awe). I’m also excited and scared to death (in a good way, if that makes any sense) to see where this journey will take us.
As I mentioned in my comment to Kat on her blog when I signed up, work’s crazy right now (year-end, new job responsibilities, juggling lots of items that don’t honestly mean anything to me) and I’m a bit worried if I’ll be able to shut my “work mind” off long enough to devote myself to do AW. Or find the energy (funny how working at a dead-end job day in/day out can sap you of all your energy).
I also know in my heart that I need to do AW at this moment in time. I’ve become estranged from my Muse. She packed her bags in the dead of night years ago, hopped a train to the west coast and occasionally drops me a postcard to let me know that she’s still around. In those moments when I can still my mind, I am sure that I can hear her voice. Mocking me.
I miss her. And want her to come back home to me.
