Month of Writing

First Month Complete!

Reflecting on the Month of Writing, I am very glad to have started this project! There was definitely some trepidation in the beginning. Today I am celebrating an accomplished first month! I didn’t miss one single day, though I almost had a couple of close calls. There are also a few posts on days where…

Grandma’s Blankets

This is a children’s story that I have had the idea for quite some time. I started it back in the summer, and put a good chunk of time into it today. I’m nearly finished, and know where I want it to go, but I think I need to give it some more sitting time…

Trip to Yellowstone Part 2

Once again, up early to get on the road, we got into Jackson Hole Wyoming sometime in the late morning. We wandered around the small picturesque town and checked out the shops and sights. There was an old historical theatre we went into and looked around. We chatted with an actor there who explained to…

Chrysalis

For my Month of Sculpture I will be working with some friends to create a large interactive piece for the regional Burning Man event I participate in, in British Columbia. We have envisioned and conceptualized a large chrysalis suspended from a leaf, that one person will be able to step inside of. I had the…

Trip to Yellowstone

This past fall I had a really awesome opportunity to take a road trip with my dear friend John to Yellowstone National Park. John and I had met years back while acting in Taming of the Shrew together at a Vancouver theatre. We became friends, then we became close friends. I grew to love John…

Vulnerability

I have found aspects of writing and free writing here to be deeply healing, and also intensely challenging. Just how much in specificity do I want to show of myself here? I have, like most people, a variety of different groups of connections that know certain aspects about me, and others that don’t. I have…

Looking Ahead

Next month, I will be moving away from a focus on writing output, and transition into a new theme of body and movement. I am having mixed emotions about this. I will certainly continue to write and make posts here, so I am very glad to have started this year off with a daily writing…

New Connections

Today I met with some awesome maker/doer new friends that run a fabrication shop here in Vancouver. We hashed out a creative vision for a large interactive sculptural piece we will hopefully be building for a summer event in July. I will make this coincide with my Month of Sculpture. Yesterday morning I met with…

Fear in the Face of our Creativity

Valleys of our creative journeys are the sustenance and replenishing storehouses of our intentional experience. Like foragers, we sift through the grasses and rivers of our environment, harvesting soul food, learning stillness, concentration, and energy management. Arguably the moments and time we take in the valley is of vastly more importance than climbing the mountains.…

Indivisible

The will is strong, it can impress the malleable framework of life. When others around us can’t be a part of change we experience, we feel left out in a distant realm of isolation. On the snowbanks of our lives, in an empty valley of thought.  Creativity, community, expression, the arts – life intersects with…
