A day all to myself, in the house with nobody but me and the dogs…ahhhh, luxurious. Nap…ahhhhh. Really vivid dreams…aaahhh. A stack of blank canvases I’ve had for two years was calling to me. And Emotikin wanted to play, too. First, a blank-canvas photo shoot to get our creative juices flowing (for our Creative Every Day Challenge).
I forgot to eat—except a cupcake Wil made for me left crusty by two days on the counter, unclaimed and unexplained. While painting, I listened to three of the CDs from “Mother Night: Myths, Stories & Teachings for Learning to See in the Dark” —a 6-CD audio series by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés just released by Sounds True (where I work in marketing & publicity). I didn’t listen to the CDs in order. I started with session six, “Mining the Mother Lode: How to Bring Diamonds from the Darkness (for Artists and People Who Want to Create).” Time flies when you’re immersed in deep teachings, fairytales, and the flow of creating. Happy Saturday to me!!! Aaaaahhhh…
Here is a podcast of Dr. Estés talking about Mother Night just before it launched as an online event series last October.
