1) My daily pages this week: 5 out of 7. On Wednesday a cold took me by surprise and knocked me for six. Final count for the fortnight: 12 out of 14.
2) Another unexpected artist´s date as I discovered the local Town Hall had a new oil paintings exhibit when I went to pay our tax.
This is the proof I didn´t follow the "no reading" thing for this chapter. My picture a day for August 27th was the book I finished. I love Maeve Binchy´s books, specially the ones that have short stories that tell the same story line from different perspectives according to the characters.
3.1: Ideal environment. Easy: here, now. My neighbourhood has the perfect size for me. Big enough to have all the services I need, small enough to get to know people.
3.2: Me at 80. This one was a complete surprise. Maybe due to the cold, maybe some other things that have been happening, I saw myself in a nasty light. Tired, defeated, still with unaccomplished projects (but in a "it´s too late" way). Awful.
3.3: Me at 8. I smiled at the amount of doll´s names I could remember. I had such faith in me. I was going to be a glamorous, famous astronomer.
3.4: Private space: I already have it.
3.5: Changes? Can´t say I see much this week. Gifts for my inner artist: knitting magazines, base acrylic colours, a journal.
3.6: Artist´s Prayer. I think it was Danielle LaPorte who said "let us shine" before each event. It covers both her and her audience. I like that one.
3.7: Longer artist´s date: N/A
3.8: Get rid of ugly clothing: I do this on a regular basis. I have an "one in, one out" system. If I buy something, one item of the same category must go.
3.9: Why do I keep quiet in the face of conflict? Because it gives me time to think. And it may go away on its own. Hopefully.
3.10: reading deprivation: it just didn´t happen.
