Yes, I am.
I’ve been thinking about a lot of things…
I’ve had a lot to do. I’ve got papers to grade. Presentation to prepare for a meeting on Thursday afternoon. Lectures and discussions to develop…this week.
I’ve also got to spend more time with my husband.
Theodore Roethke once said,
“A mind too active is no mind at all.”
So I’ve got to take a couple of days off…
But in the meantime, as I have been thinking about creativity lately, and plan to make that a topic of discussion soon, I want to offer the following pieces of wisdom taken from The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron:
Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it
and whispers, “Grow, grow.”
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to
what the world tells you you ought to prefer,
is to have kept your soul alive.
Robert Louis Stevenson
When a man takes one step toward God, God takes more steps
toward that man than there are sands in the worlds of time.
The Work of the Chariot
I’ll be back on Friday with my Friday Favorites. In the meantime, feel free to comment here! I will respond to comments.
Have a great rest of your week!
