Listening in silence

Tree limbs greet the morning haze

sweet cool air dance along the lines

shared spaces with winged creatures

The wind whips me awake, draws me in

I am aware..

I feel comfort..

I whisper thank you..

Transform

Days shift to nights

we try to hide

we blanket our fears

we are exposed

we wake

we begin to see clearly

From my sketchbook:  Pencil and pen sketch on toned paper

The page is my friend

I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis.  My writing this morning inspired this doodle.

My sketch book, pencil, pen on paper.

What do books, artwork and a gnome with a broken foot have in common?  Nothing! I am in search of  inspiration in any form. I have been caught in a dust storm of sorts, a creative dry spell. I am finding ways to replenish thy soul, by doing the things I enjoy, like reading books from my favorite authors. It helps to know that this will pass, to be patient and to do the things that will fill my well of inspiration.

I would love your feedback. How do you cope with a creative dry spell?

Julia Cameron, The Artist Way

Henriette Anne Klauser, Write It Down Make It Happen

David Usher, Let The Elephants Run

Day 21 The good the bad

I take comfort knowing I have an outlet for all the ideas, crazy thoughts positive & negative that occupies my mind. My first love is drawing, but I find I am writing more often and it feels like a good fit which I hope continues to grow.

Nature finds a way to be heard

the wind howls outside

the quiet of the room

forced nature shadows upon my own thoughts

stubborn, relentless thoughts

move on, move on

Release

let the breeze carry it all away

Release

Creative Everday

Not keeping up with the times

So I wrote a letter…  not a text message, or an email but a hand written note using paper and a pen.

I have a friend who enjoys writing letters, occasionally she will write to me.  Feeling a spark of creativity on Sunday, I decided to finally reply to one of her letters, I included this sketch to adorn the front of my letter.
