It’s Never too Late to Begin is a twelve-week course for anyone who wishes to expand their creativity. It is not meant only for “declared” artists. It is aimed at those transitioning into the second act of life— leaving one life behind, and heading into one yet to be created. For some, this may mean retiring from the formal work world, for others this may mean facing an empty nest once the children have grown up and left home, for still others this may simply mean rejuvenating the creative spirit when suddenly branded “senior citizen.”
Each week, you will read the week's chapter and complete the tasks within. You will work with four Basic Tools: the daily tool of Morning Pages, the once- weekly Artist Date, and twice- weekly solo walks. The Memoir will unfurl over the entire twelve weeks, as you revisit your unique story one manageable section at a time.
Twelve weeks— three months— may seem like a long time, but think of it as a few-hours-weekly investment in the next phase of your life.
Three daily pages of longhand, stream-of-consciousness writing done first thing in the morning, “for your eyes only”
A weekly, guided process of triggering memories and revisiting your life in several-year increments
A once-weekly, solo expedition to explore something fun
A twenty minute solo walk, twice weekly, without dog, friend or cell phone
