I still need to do a check-in from last week. And the week before....
Last week I considered church to by my Artist date. Is this a cop out? I went by myself, and it seemed like a good thing to do. And I felt inspired, and better than I did before I left the house. I'm thinking this could qualify.
1. How many days did I write? Probably two in my leather journal, and four here. A bit of a drop-off, which I'll try to remedy this week. I realise now just how much of an impact it makes to do this writing thing every day. Gets the creativity flowing nicely. Or, better than it was. Yes, I do like them. No, they're not yet my Morning Pages, more like my Nighttime Pages.
Hmmm, the Page-And-A-Half Truth Point? I think that's probably true. Get the junk out in the first few paragraphs, and then the truth comes out. Yes, I think so.
2. Artist Date--church, as I just said.
3. Did I experience any Synchronicity? Hmmm. I don't rightly know. Nothing comes to mind. Oh, wait. Yes, if this qualifies-- I was reminded of the fact that I said yes to doing a reading/workshop/program thing about Creativity and Spirituality in January. It occurred to me shortly thereafter that this Artist's Way lark might be just the ticket for informing what I would say about writing and the spiritual life. Not that I'm feeling very spiritual most of the time; that's something else I'm hoping to reclaim.
4. Any other issues significant to my recovery? Other than I know more now that these Pages are necessary? Perhaps that I'm realising more and more that getting out is important. That getting adequate sleep is crucial. That blogging isn't such a bad thing after all. I am being creative when I add to my blogs, and I'm writing more on each one. I feel creative when I blog.
So, I'm up to bed, and going to read some in Chapter Six.
I'll leave this with one of the items I wish for:
