Love of Words

We must write from love and we must choose those to read us who read from love: the love of words. The love of naming our experience must finally be the guiding force in what we put on the page. When we write from fear of criticism, we hamper our stride and we cripple our […]

Keeping up Artist Dates

Let’s say you have kept up your Morning Pages and yet you still find yourself “blocked.” I would ask if you let your Artist Dates go by the board. Many artists use this tool only until it works. They go on Artist Dates, encounter a new and enriching flow of insights and ideas, and then, […]

Unlimited creativity

When we look at God’s creation, with all of its diversity and abundance, it is hard not to look at God as someone who might just send us support for our creative adventures. As we rely on the unlimited supply of the Universe, we are reminded over and over again that the Creator itself certainly […]


Many blocked creatives tell themselves they are both “too old” and “too young” to allow themselves to pursue their dreams.  Old and dotty, they might try it. Young and foolish, they might try it. In either scenario, being crazy is a prerequisite to creative exploration. We do not want to look crazy, and trying something like […]


Once you accept that it is natural to create, you can begin to accept a second idea: that the Creator will hand you whatever you need for the project. The minute you are willing to accept the help of this collaborator, you will see useful bits of help everywhere in your life. Be alert: there […]


In order to move through loss and beyond it, we must acknowledge it and share it. Because artistic losses are seldom openly acknowledged or mourned, they become artistic scar tissue that blocks artistic growth.

When it comes time for us to choose between a cherished dream and a lousy current drudgery, we often choose to ignore the dream, and blame our continued misery on God. We act like it’s God’s fault we didn’t go to Europe, take that painting class, go on that photo shoot. In truth, we, not […]

Positivity vs Negativity

Listing the many ways that God has helped us to prosper leads to an ongoing belief in prosperity. Focusing on the positive, we come to expect further positives. Conversely, if we focus on the negative, we will find ourselves anticipating negativity. The choice is up to us which way we want to view our reality. […]


It’s not the answer that enlightens, but the question. -Eugene Ionesco Problems bear the seeds of their solutions. Beset by worry or anxiety, unable to clearly see my way, I remind myself my soul is connected to all wisdom. I will be led because I am led firmly and certainly whenever I turn within for […]

Conscious Optimism

Fortunately, psychoanalysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist. -Karen Horney In daily life, there is an inner transition I can consciously practice. This is the transition from fear to faith. Faced with ambiguity and uncertainty, I can choose to believe things will work out […]
