The Silver Lining

“Gain disguised as loss” is a potent artist’s tool. To acquire it, simply, brutally, ask: “How can this loss serve me? Where does it point my work?” The answers will surprise and liberate you. The trick is to metabolize pain as energy. The key to doing that is to know, to trust, and to act […]


Sane and Happy

So much of being sane and happy begins with the doing of things that are sane and happy. This means that we must train ourselves to think small rather than large. We become frightened because we have “big decisions” to make. But big decisions can be made gently, a small step at a time. But […]


Drought

I want to say something about droughts: as painful as they are, they deepen us. When we feel we have “nothing to say” as artists, we are grappling with what it is we do want to say. In struggling to find our sources of inspiration, we find ourselves. Another thing: drought doesn’t disqualify you as […]


I Open Myself

We have been taught to believe that negative equals realistic and positive equals unrealistic. -Susan Jeffers My nourishment comes from many sources. I accept my good and all the multiple costumes and disguises which it may undertake. My good comes to me as people, as events and opportunities. My good comes to me as wise […]


Unlimited Supply

The power of the word is real, whether or not you are conscious of it. Your own words are the bricks and mortar of the dreams you want to realize. Behind every word flows energy. -Sonia Choquette The Universe responds to my dreams and needs. There is a unity flowing through all things. This unity […]


Joy

We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment– the only moment there is for us to be alive. Every breath we […]


Possibility

Let the great world spin forever down the ringing grooves of change. -Lord Tennyson The world is a forest of verdant possibility. No one person controls my happiness. No one person is the source of my joy. I am rooted in universal flow. My needs for love and affection are met by many sources. I […]


Happiness

One is happy as a result of one’s own efforts, once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness–simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience. Happiness is no vague dream; of that I now feel certain. -George Sand Happiness is a by-product of […]


One Spirit

If you want the truth, I will tell you the truth. Friend, listen. The God whom I love is inside.  -Kabir One life, one love, one energy, runs through all of creation. This life is Spirit, an inner river that can be tapped into at any time. Knowing this, we are divinely guided at all times. […]


Beginning

I have begun piano lessons in Santa Fe. My teacher is Charles Tichenor. He is gentle but demanding. I still miss my New York teacher, Chaim Freiborg, but I feel like I will quickly bond with Charles. I am trying to practice a half an hour a day, and so far I thoroughly enjoy it. My […]
