Musings from the keyboard

Life is Good! Celebrate it daily!

Welcome to my digital world!

Join me with your cup of coffee or tea and browse through my musings.  There’s  so much wonderfulness that surfaces when we allow ourselves to tap into that creative aspect of our nature.

Even if we are not “pros” in any field, we can enjoy life more deeply when we give in to those urges of listening to that voice suggesting we try writing, drawing or playing an instrument.  The list goes on.

Magic begins to unfold as we gain our confidence and just move forward in the direction our heart leads us.  Being creative gives my eyes, ears and heart a fresh outlook on life.

Hope you will be inspired too!


Want to start off 2016 being more creative?

Join us on the 1st Saturday morning of every month with the new Seattle Artist’s Way Meetup.

Do you have an artistic side that you’ve longed to develop? Or are you already producing art regularly (acting, painting, music-making, pottery, performing, writing poetry or fiction, or anything else) and you want a group that will keep your creative fire burning bright?

Perhaps you are an artist already creating regularly but wanting to break through to a more professional next level?

Whether your artistic journey is at the beginning, intermediate or advanced stage, we are here to create a community of support, of friendship and of mutual inspiration, nourishing our artistic as well as our human side to bring out all the gifts, large and small, that we have inside us.

In the tradition of Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way,” we consider creativity to be more than just an expression of our play; we consider it a sort of spiritual practice. So we’ll reference The Artist’s Way for a sense of structure to our gatherings (for instance, picking out short exercises from the book at each meeting), we’ll inspire each other to add to our well of creativity (“Artist’s Dates”) with occasional “field trips,” and we’ll share bits and pieces of the things we’re creating so as to have a community of nourishing, supportive people whom we might also come to call friends.

Your hosts have done the entire Artist’s Way course (and beyond) and create on an ongoing, daily basis. One is a tango dancer, visual artist, flautist, and writer, and the other is a published writer and screenwriter and occasional composer. Together, we want to provide a venue for artists and aspiring artists to empower themselves and thrive in a mutually supportive community.

We meet at 10 a.m. on the first Saturday morning of the month in Ballard (with occasional “artist’s dates” field trips available). The cost of each meeting is to help defray Meetup fees and other costs. We’re looking for members who are committed to creating and to supporting others in doing so.

If you own a copy of The Artist’s Way, bring it with you; or consider acquiring one as it’ll provide you with structure between meetings and the discovery of all the ways in which being an artist is about how you live as much as what you create. Looking forward to the creative journey together!

Nancy Newman and her chickens“From the Nonphysical, you created you, and now from the physical, you continue to create — and we are nothing if we are not flow-ers of Energy. We must have objects of attention that are ringing our bells, in order to feel the fullness of who we are — flowing through us — for the continuation of All-That-Is.

That is what puts the eternalness in eternity.”
