Letting It Loose

I just wrote four paragraphs about creating art, and about how I put my creativity on hold when I was in college and never let it back out of its cage after that and how it has fought me ever since, and I read back over those four paragraphs and I hated them even more than I hate run-on sentences. So I used my conveniently placed “delete” key and now you don’t have to suffer through them.

What I want to say is this:  I feel an art project coming on this weekend. And I’m also feeling a very strong push to go back to school for some kind of artsy endeavor. I miss making things. And I want to explore how to coax that part of myself out to stretch and sniff the air.

How is that going to happen? I have no idea but I feel I am being called to do it, so I better figure it out. 

I’m thinking I may start with Bliss Habits, which is rolling out “Summer Camp for your Inner Child.” What the heck, what do I have to lose?

I say "go for it," Lisa. Create with abandon and don't worry about the end product. Go for the whole experience of it.

I didn't get to do a whole art project this weekend (still struggling with low energy/nasty cold), but I have started down the path. I tucked a sketch book into my purse so as things come to me this week I can try and capture them. Baby steps!

Also been doing some research on online courses. Also my local community center has a basic web design class, wondering if it's worth it? We shall see.
