|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.

Hi Carol, i love the cold feelings expressed in your photos, maybe that's because ours is really hot, and thanks for visiting my site. Yet i love most the photo where the haiku is written, so lovely!ReplyDelete

I used to walk every day, and I need to get back to it.ReplyDelete
"Yield of eels" - interesting! Eels are too much like snakes to me. Were they actually fishing for them?ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
That is good advice. I need to make room in my life to follow it.ReplyDelete
I very much liked the photo of the fishing boat.
Yield of eels -- shrimp would be my preference, but if that is what they are catching...ReplyDelete
I love that gate!
What a lovely color and shape!
Thanks for the dreamy walk, Carol!
