Studio Mothers: Life & Art

Mary Oliver quote

Welcome to the first Monday Post of 2015!

A regular creative practice — a daily practice, if possible — is key to staying in touch with how you make meaning. Key to living, not postponing. (Let’s all agree to give up on “someday.”)

What are your plans for creative practice this week? Given the specifics of your schedule, decide on a realistic intention or practice plan — and ink that time in your calendar. The scheduling part is important, because as you know, if you try to “fit it in” around the edges, it generally won’t happen. An intention as simple as “I will write for 20 minutes every morning after breakfast” or “I will sketch a new still life on Wednesday evening” is what it’s all about. If appropriate, use time estimates to containerize your task, which can make a daunting project feel more accessible.

Share your intentions or goals…

  1. That is cold for Cali! It was in the 40s here in Colorado and it was warm! I went for a long run and reveled in the sunshine! Keep your sweet pups warm! Love Kristofferson! I’m listening to Don Williams on a CD. Maybe someday, we’ll get to meet and we can listen to good country music and drink a beer! 🙂
