For a few years now I’ve been participating in Art Every Day Month, which is ably and creatively hosted by Leah Piken Kolidas at Creative Every Day. It’s a challenge to us creative types to enjoy being accountable to something other than ourselves, for a change, in a supportive and wholesome way. There’s no pressure, only a band of artists and nearly-artists and trying-to-be-artists and not-really-believing-I’m-an-artist Artists…. in other words it’s open to all of us wherever we are on our journey.
I’m looking forward to the commitment, though I won’t be feeling bound or constrained by it, and I certainly won’t be feeling any guilt if I don’t manage to post anything. As we say in yoga, we form an intention, and lean towards it, and that’s OK. If we don’t make it to the full Baddha Utthita Parsvakonasana (bound extended side angle pose!) that’s OK, we are exactly where we need to be today.
Happy November, and Happy Creating! x
