"Old ways won't open new doors."

And that's sure the truth. The image at the right was a totally new way of doing things for me. Why did I try it? What did I think would come of it?

The point is, I guess, that I really had no idea what might show up and yet still went for it. We need to try the new. And sometimes just keep on trying it to get what we might want from it. 

This one was totally playtime in my journal and yet it sparked some desire in me to keep the play going. This was such beginner's luck. Subsequent tries have been all over the map.


I like to think we should make a habit of trying new things, new ways, new roads, new directions. That's where the living is.

 February is traditionally all about love and I LOVE teaching workshops. I could not be happier than I am to have the mixed media playtime workshops happening again on a regular basis...and with some really wonderful folks, returning and new alike. 

So much creative play exists in these five hours. We do wonderful potlucks and just graze as we go amidst the the wonderful and joyful conversations that arise. Life stories and travels and art discoveries and much more are shared as we go about the play of creating.

February's workshop on the 27th has only one spot remaining open at this writing. All are vaccinated and we vote on mask wearing at the very start. If you have an interest in joining a fun group there's that one spot or March and May dates are set as well. on, MacDuff!
