Creative Weather

Try this: During a sustained period of work, artists require special care. We must be vigilant to not abuse our health and well-being. We must actively nurture ourselves. For each of us, the act of nurturing differs. Take pen in hand. Number from 1 to 10. List ten concrete ways in which you can support your artist during a season of hard work. For example:

1. Go to bed an hour early
2. Stay in touch with close friends
3. Buy good groceries
4. Cook real meals
5. Continue to write Morning Pages
6. Double your number of Artist Dates
7. Continue to take Walks
8. Set a modest daily quotient
9. Quit while you're ahead; do not exhaust yourself
10. Plan and execute a reward for work well done

    Thank you Julia for helping me keep it real! You are such a blessing!
