Ideas For You

If I set aside time everyday to write I feel whole. Writing time calls for prep time this means good smells from fresh flowers, a great pen, Hot tea for sipping and ice water. When the weather is beautiful as it so often is in Phoenix, I sit outside on my back porch and write. It is a delicious life.


It’s that time of year – January makes us contemplate the year ahead and all of the things we’d like to accomplish. I am not big on making resolutions but instead I focus on setting goals. I sat down recently and made goal lists for the coming year and when I painted them I thought to myself that I should share these as inspiration sheets. So here are short and long term goal sheets. Only write down three to five goals as that allows you to be more focused. Also,  be specific with your goals because being to broad or too abstract allows you to get out of it.

This amazing list of Woody Guthrie’s from the 1940’s brings such a smile. It is at once delicious and profound and thoughtful and tragic. What a beautiful tale in both words, hopes and tiny doodles. I think it would be such a good idea to create drawn journal pages that are resolutions or goals for the coming year. Hmmmm . . . . stay tuned for that.
