Create Different: When (Written) Words Just Aren’t Enough

“Create Different”. I decided to do just that and record my blog post. See, my morning began today with the startling realization that it’s time to shift gears with how, what and why I create. “Whoa!” I thought. “What game is afoot now?”  Welcome to my newest experiment!

When I got home from France this past week, I realized I hadn’t written a blog post in 2 months (though I’ve made incredible ones in my mind about a hundred times). What was up with THAT? Alot of resistance, that’s what. I spent a couple of days trying to push one out and trying to make myself to get with the program, but got nuttin’. I felt dry as a desert. Such a crappy feeling.

Finally I decided to stop, ask and listen for a new direction.”Create Different” is what I got. THAT notion has far reaching implications! But in the immediate, it meant speaking today’s blog post. So I did.

And look – it’s even illustrated! hehheh. Where will this lead? It remains to be seen. Suffice it to say that ALOT of new information, inspiration and impulses came through this morning. I’m excited!


Create Different: The Visual

Naturally, there MUST be a photo to serve as illustration for these fun new thoughts. That’s still awesome – since sharing photos is like breathing to me. Today I chose one that I thought fit the theme perfectly.

It’s from my recent voyage to France for my “The Artist’s Voice” retreat. This was during the group’s visit to Grasse, (always a fan favorite!)…and I thought the light and shadows were like another world. So I processed it that way! That’s Marjorie Lord, one of our participants, finding HER voice; so it all seemed to fit.

It was the most fabulous retreat! And I JUST decided to open up 2 new spots! (lots of requests, so I thought “Why not?”)
