"A connecting principle, linked to the invisible"

Lyrics: The Police [synchronicity I]

petunia

No real reason to post this photo of a petunia [from an Artist’s Date!] other than to give you something I found pretty, to start your day off with a potential smile.

One of the things that The Artist’s Way says I’m supposed to keep an eye out for is occurrences of synchronicity/seredipity in my life, and what more startling than one that directly has to do with the Work?

After last week’s reading deprivation, I’m finally getting to the reading that I let pile up, and today’s reading was the latest issue of Body + Soul Magazine. What I found in there was not ONLY a quote from and reference to Julia Cameron, but several mentions of synchronicity/seredipity! Hey Universe – I’m paying attention.

I have to confess something today… there are all these exercises about what I want to do, what dreams I’m denying myself… and I have a really difficult time doing them. Not because I find them challenging in the aspect of allowing myself to do things – I don’t even get that far – but because I can’t think of anything I want to do.

I mean… I want to do podcasts. I want to get a bike. I want to do small things – but as for the bigger dreams, I’ve just done so many of them! I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up this time, y’all. It’s something to work further on, but I thought that in the interest of my honesty and transparency, I should admit it to everyone. [yep, that was a slightly nervous laugh you heard.]

Has this Work been interesting to follow? I’m curious – I mean, I’ll be doing it either way, but I’m wondering how much impact I have by sharing this progress. Feel free to leave your feedback in comments, I welcome it!

I write, as openly as possible, about my experiences with life, love, creativity, depression and not-depression. I share opinions. I promote compassion and change. I talk about music. I also write poetry and short stories. I like to share them here.
