Another blogger posted about this and I thought it might be just the inspiration you needed to kick it up a notch this year. It was great to see everyone last night and I was amazed to see all your work!
I just read this today – I hope you will all take a few minutes to read it too, and then I hope you will look at your prices and wonder if you have a similar problem?
I am feeling a bit sad that our year together is almost over – I hope I see everyone on December 10th – actually I hope I see a lot of you this weekend at the holiday sale – until then…
Hi everyone, thought with the holidays rapidly approaching – which I know for many of you means that family and friends will be eating away at your studio time ( no matter how glad you are for them) – I thought a little creative uplift might be in order so
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” ~ Martha Graham
This won’t be for everyone, the first video especially is really touchy feel-y. But Lisa Sonora Beam who wrote the creative entrepreneur is one of the women featured.
I hope everyone enjoyed their labor day holiday, although I spent the whole day on the computer trying to get caught up for school, at least my house is clean and I am finally up to date with my marking! I am teaching a student success class this semester, which is basically a freshman experience, it provides them with tools to become better motivated and prepared for life in college. Obviously I often think of the comparisons between this class and SAVI.
I have needed some uplifting motivation lately, I have been running behind all term and while I have been spending a huge amount of time in the studio (which is why I am behind!) I have been focused on finishing the big installation piece I was working on, and that has felt a lot like WORK!
So because it seems like ages until we meet again, and as it will be a brief meeting abbreviated by Bonagany, here’s a lecture for you to keep you moving towards your goals. Some of you have probably seen it before, or may even have read the book, but I never get tired of watching this man speak – Enjoy!
