Walking in This World: Discovering a Sense of Adventure

Last night was week four of my Walking in This World: The Practical Art of Creativity 10-week series. Each week we do a check-in with how everyone is feeling physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Each of the ladies shares how they've been doing on their Morning Pages, Artist's Date, and a weekly walk. Occasionally we even talk about the chapter we've all just read. After our sharing time, and a break for tea and a snack, we switch gears and dive into a weekly creative project that I have prepared. Since our theme last night was adventure, I thought it would be fun if the ladies made themselves a fancy walking stick (they had been told in advance to bring a branch that could double as a walking stick). For the project, I brought out fibers, beads, bells, charms, copper wire, and even a bowl full of old earrings so their sticks could have a bit of flair. The process was fun to watch and their finished walking sticks were gorgeous!

Lovely, Dayna: both the way the walking sticks look and the idea. There is something wonderful about manifesting our attitudes. That magical stick will just attract adventure, I think!
