The Artist's Way - Week Six

I didn't really enjoy this week of the Artist's Way, called "Recovering a Sense of Abundance." The author talks about tackling money as a major creative block. One of my tasks was to count what a spent during the week. Didn't do that. I did take five shirts to the Salvation Army, and for my Artist's Date, I went to the Farmer's Market. Gave the man two dollar bills instead of $1.50 for a pound of green peppers. So I guess you could say I wasted 50¢. But I like having the Market there, and want to support the farmers.


I didn't gather any rocks or leaves - two other tasks for the week. A year ago, I pick up some rocks off a beach in Ireland... maybe I should take them out and gaze at them. Instead of picking leaves off trees I picked a single rose and placed it next to my computer. How else am I following my Way? I get up early every day and write my morning pages. Almost completed my first notebook.

Did I have any more synchronicity occurrences? One thing in particular stuck out this week. At work, I called about the map case that I've been waiting for, but didn't get through to Arizona (the warehouse wasn't open yet.) The next moment, there was the delivery truck. I didn't expect my synchronicities to happen at work, for some reason. But I do spend half my life there, so I guess it makes sense. Here's part of my delivery.

Glad to hear you're supporting the farmer's market. Fresh produce is almost always worth it!

Another weird synchronicity moment! The rose is much prettier than leaves!

I agree with Beaded about the rose! I wish our farmer's market was better. I am not sure they can compete with the push from the local grocery store--they are offering more and more Texas-grown organic products.

Oh. Morning pages. Haven't thought about those in SO long, but used to be quite faithful. They were a quiet, peaceful exploration, but I did have one problem: I have very small handwriting; three pages took AGES!

Uh-oh. Had to put the dog to bed, and I think when I closed my laptop it took away the comment I was writing.

You've reminded me about Morning Pages, which I used to do faithfully. I'm remembering it was during a time when my DH was working in another town, so mornings were pretty much my own. But the pages took me Ages to do, cuz my handwriting is SMALL, lol!

Interesting, Deb, I don't think I would be able to keep up with the weekly asignments myself!
