What do you wish to begin?

As each Wednesday, today Jamie poses a question to reflect on and you can read what other wishers have to say here at the original post.

For the past few weeks I´ve been carrying this book around: "The artist´s way" by Julia Cameron.
I´ve already been through this one in 2007. I can honestly say it sparkled everything that came from that moment on creatively. I´m planning on beginning it again as I´m at a different place now and I want to explore where it can take me now.
I will read the intro during June and will do the chapters from July 1st. One chapter each fortnight. Due to my crazy busy schedule doing a week a week is asking for trouble. :D The point is to relight my creativity, not to send me into a pit of dispair because I´m behind with yet another project!

If anybody fancies to join me and my friend Sabine I will be posting Check In posts on Sundays from July 3rd. :) And if you want to see the coffee shop where this picture was taken, click here to see La Brava.

If you are part of my Cyber tribe you may have noticed that I changed the Check In day from Saturday to Sunday. That is part of the "no stress" attitude. It is quite probable that we have more time on Saturdays to polish the exercises and we will be ready to post the following day. I´m giving us plenty of air/space to work joyfully.

Talking about space: I´ll organize a list of participants here on the right hand column, so we can find each other in Cyberspace and we can share our own artist´s way. :)

Yes, yes, yes, I'd love to begin doing Morning Pages and everything else again and sharing with others along the way.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you (and us!) too.

I looked at the Artist's Way several years ago, but did not seriously pursue the activities in it. But lately I keep coming across references to it, as if the Universe is putting it in my path deliberately! Perhaps it is time to give it a second look :)

Enjoy your journey through it again.
As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also. Maybe I will add my name... I bought the book and that is how far I got.

Sounds like a great idea. I have that book SOMEWHERE in the house and I'd love to join you. E-mail me and let me know more about these check-ins. Do you plan to post the subject of your morning pages on your blog? I'm curious and interested in learning more.

I signed up Paula:) I've been thinking about re-doing the Artist Way myself with the idea that it would be so much better as a group.

Yey! As you wish for yourself I too wish for you.

Love and light.

Count me in! I have the book, but have never put aside time to really do any of it. This would be as good excuse for me as any.

Good luck on your journey! As you wish for yourself, so I truly wish for you also.

Sarah Lulu said...

I plan also to work my way through that book later in the year.

As you wish for yourself I so lovingly wish this for you also. xx

Mouse said...

I've heard of the book but not read it .... may have to venture to the library in the not too distant future!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too :)

Anne said...

I'll be joining you, too, Paula! I'm a bit nervous and excited. Nervous because I tried the book before and never stuck with it. And I guess excited for the same reason. Thanks for being so organized with this!

The Artist Way is a great book and a great process. My hubby and I both did it before we met. Then for our first big date, he bought tickets to here Julia Cameron talk. It was great. I have been doing her book The Writing Diet. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well!

Maggie said...

I finally fell off the fence and decided to join up! Especially since it's been so long since I've read the book. :) And since you extended the time - I didn't think that I could do it before!

As you wish for yourself Paula so I wish for you.

Denni said...

Hi Paula,
I can't wait to begin the Artist's way again. It will be so fun to share with the group.
Thanks for commenting on my blog about my cat. He seems fine now...still don't know what happened.

Grace said...

Have a wonderful time with the Artist Way! :) As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well!

Hi!

I have this book somewhere in the house... I found it very interesting, but time consuming. So I gave it up. Maybe it is time to open it again !

And about Jamie's wishcasting : As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

Lots of love
