1. How many day's this week did you do your Morning Pages?

Three for seven on the week.

2. Did you do your Artist's Date this week?


3. Did you get out on your Weekly Walk?


4. Were there any other issues this week that felt significant to you in your self-discovery?

There were a number of phrases in this week's material which seemed to speak to me. Such as, "Actors forget that the key word is 'act.' " Doh! I am not frozen. I CAN act. I can learn new monologues. I can read plays. I can do open mikes. I CAN practise my guitar. I CAN sing. I CAN do things which may not pay but which would give me a greater sense of accomplishment.

Instead, I sit on my couch and suck at the glass teat (as Harlan Ellison would say), watching bad television for hours on end. But I tell myself I have discerning tastes. Nonsense. I probably should cut off my cable, but then I know I'd drive myself nuts like T. does (she doesn't have television. She lives right below me so I can practically hear her bouncing off the walls - concrete though they may be.)

I keep forgetting to 'DO'. There are so many things I can be doing. I don't know what I am waiting for.

I need a worthwhile project.
  • Even though I'm not actively doing "Walking" I am doing pages and trying to do some walk and observe exercises. I had to give up on regular artist date - regretably.
    But I do know about the feeling of needing a project - OH do I know! But I have learned from doing Julia several times. So, I've gone back to makig short lists of creative things I could do in the next week or two weeks. Do I get them all done??? Seldom! I have 6 for this week - all very doable. If I get 3 done I'll be pleased.
    Good Luck :-)
