I continue to be amazed by the commitment these six women have made to our weekly groups and their attendance has been sterling! They are taking Julia Cameron's book to heart and demonstrate this by writing Morning Pages, taking themselves on Artist's Dates, working on weekly assignments, and by sharing from their heart every week. This past week we focused on abundance, both in how we spend our time and our money. Our activity was blind contour drawing, also known as "zen" drawing. This was a three-part exercise, which involved drawing a crazy object in the center of the room (a scraggly branch with rose hips at the tips), doing a self-portrait, and then drawing each other: all without looking at their page or lifting their pen! The groans were audible, especially when I asked them to write about the experience . . . with their non-dominant hand!
