Changes To The Blog
So what’s changing? I’ve decided to go back to posting on a Monday as I did for many years. I only began posting on a Thursday because I was actually posting twice a week for a while, however I found I just couldn’t manage it long-term. So I trust you will weather the change OK and come read my posts on a Monday. I am going to post some snippets this week from the past – you may have missed them, or perhaps you will enjoy them again.
‘You cannot separate yourself from your art. Art is the expression of your creative self. No matter what you choose to craft – a film, a painting, a novel, it says something about who you are because you are the one who chose that particular thing to do and share with the world.’
This creative expression becomes intrinsic to the full exploration of our lives. Without it we tend to stutter and splutter, stall and fade for we are not following our ‘raison d’etre’.

The challenge is to be alert enough to signals/signs from the Universe, God, the great spirit – what ever you want to call it/him/her. Pay attention to things that catch your attention, that you are drawn to – even if you don’t understand why at the time, for these are the things we are meant to explore.

Our first assignment is to describe the people we want to visit and read our blogs.
I am an artist and my real passion is creativity. The people who may experience an instant connection to this blog are those who recognize that they are creative. Although I am primarily a visual artist and now a budding writer, I would like to think that creatives from all walks of life will gain benefit from my blog. The issues I post about are usually related to the creative journey in some way, offering insights and knowledge gained during the course of my creative career.
However I would also like to think that my blog offers food for thought to those of us who don’t think they have any creativity. That it might give them the courage to have a look and be delighted and surprised at their own- magnificence – to not put too finer point on it. It is my passionate belief that we all have a creative genius within us waiting to be uncovered and so my blog is to encourage those of us who haven’t discovered this part of themselves yet.
In particular I would like to reach out to people in the business world who think that creativity is largely irrelevant in that arena. They couldn’t be more wrong, especially in today’s economic environment. If you have any doubts about this – read Seth Godin’s latest book –Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?
The other group of people who may enjoy this blog are those who are interested in self development. Unfolding one’s creativity, is a journey of the soul and calls to all of us if we are able to hear and be open to our voice within. So many of my students are amazed at the qualities they find themselves developing through their art practice.
Therefore if you like reading my blog you probably fall somewhere between the ages of 20 and 120, you might live anywhere in the world and currently most likely speak English. Your interests probably lie more in the arts than sciences and you may be interested in developing innovative changes in your business environment. You enjoy personal challenges and are interested in the arts and creativity.
