Recovering a Sense of Compassion
This week, I wrote a lot about living in the Midwest, and how it affected me just being me. I was often shamed, humiliated, and abused.
I went to Creativity Explored to visit their current show called Dance Party! Then visited the library to scan the art magazines.
Section 1) Fear - “Procrastination is not laziness, it is fear. Fear of not being good enough. Fear of failure.” “The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all”
Section 2) Enthusiasm - I disagree about discipline. It takes discipline to clean, to stop, to eat...
Section 3) Creative U-Turns - grieving about rejection from grad school, AIR’s, and local group show with good financing.
Section 4) Blasting Through Blocks - List resentments and fears
#2) Visualizing - amazing clean studio with stocked kitchen
#3) Priorities - Year, Month, and Week goals
