Happy Easter to Everyone!

Is anyone else feeling the urge for a Creativity Renewal this spring?

I’m feeling a little more tired and frumpy since last summer. This has been a long, gray, cold winter for many of us. We are promised 60 degree weather and sun for Easter in Minnesota. So, I can feel that it is time to brush off ingrained habits, pale skin and dark heavy clothes!

“People find life entirely too time consuming.”
–  Stanislaw J. Lec

I am taking this chance to follow the seasons and get the house cleaned up, begin new walking routines (actually outside), have friends over for fun and start new writing projects.

I invite you to take a moment with me to open more space in our creative lives. The relaxed, expansive state is the beginning of creativity. We can start by breathing the fresh air, feeling the sunshine and focusing on mindful moments of appreciation for the beauty that is blooming.

Now, get out and have some fun!

Reshaping life! People who can say thay have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.”  -Boris Pasternak (Doctor Zhivago)



“To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.”
–  Emily Dickinson
