Poetry and Photography Wed and Thursday


Foggy Day on Cape Ann MA ~ 'Yield of eels' for Outdoor Weds and Alphabe Thursday (Y)



Haiku for Carpe Diem ~ prompt ~ tarot, Hierophant



Rustic Gate in artist village on Cape Ann Ma for Rurality



Julia Cameron's THE ARTIST'S WAY book, written several years ago, was very influential in my daily 'practice of creativity'. There were two major activities she suggested, i.e. 'daily pages and an artist' date; now she has added a third important daily practice, walking as it helps the artist integrate her mind and body and clear her thoughts. I added 'walking' quite naturally several years ago and I continue my daily pages and artist date. They have helped me tremendously to arrive at this creative point in my life. I am ever grateful for my teachers along the way, I am blessed.

We are sharing with these creative bloggers:

Hope you will join us on the creative journey.

Wishing you the best in each day. xxooo

  30. "Yield of eels" - interesting! Eels are too much like snakes to me. Were they actually fishing for them?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like your "Yield of Eels" "Y" picture, Carole. I am not big on eels so I would rather been some type of edible fish or shell fish.
