Another week has come and gone, and it's the end of the summer. And Week #10 of the Artist's Way. I'm still getting up a half hour earlier than "usual" and writing my morning pages. Actually, this is the new norm! I didn't take myself on an artist's date this week... unless you count Wednesday, when I went to the Outpatient Center at the hospital, to get my ultrasound. It was kinda fun, to see my insides! And the technician put on the transducer's "speaker" for a moment, and I could hear a "whooshing" sound. "What's that?" I asked. It was my blood, rushing through my veins. Very neat!
Someone on my Art Walk Etsy (AWE) Team mentioned a report she heard, stating how in difficult financial times, women buy smaller ticket items to give them a psychological lift. This really stuck with me, especially since I can't see items selling out of the Museum Store anymore. Later in the day, I got a call from the Firehouse Art Center; they just sold my Star Treasure Necklace!
That was perfect timing, and I needed a synchronicity lift too! Haven't noticed any in a while...
I made a To Do list this week, and finished everything on the list. And I completed all my tasks in my Workbook... EXCEPT... one thing I kept on forgetting: "do one lovely thing" for myself every day. I get into a routine of doing certain things at certain times, and "lovely" doesn't fall into it. Actually, I had to look up lovely, to be sure; Merriam-Webster says "delightful for beauty, harmony, or grace." So I have a suggestion for all you busy gals and guys out there: take a Post-It and write LOVELY on it, in bright colors, and stick it on your computer to remind yourself. Even if you don't get up and take a walk or go out and buy some flowers for the house, at least you'll get a smile!
