It’s been over a week since I’ve posted anything here and even longer than that since I’ve actually written much. Lately a lot of my focus has been on artwork as well as doing a lot of work spiritually. Right now I’m working on a 16 x 20 ink piece. It’s my largest piece to date and it’s coming along nicely. Of course I’ll be posting it here when it is finished.
The spiritual work I’ve been doing is more complicated, just because there are several different things going on at once. I’m glad to report that I’ve gotten back into meditation which is already making a huge difference, as well as finally getting around to resuming work on a series of shamanic journeys which I started and then swiftly let slide back in November. In addition to that I’ve been diving deep into studying tarot. I’ve been working with oracle cards for a while now and have no plans to drop them because I feel a deep connection with this particular deck. It’s just that a new contact really sparked my interest in learning the system and relationships between the cards in tarot decks. Learning tarot has been on my to do list for a long time. I just hadn’t gotten serious about doing the work. It has been a time of digging deep and going within for me spiritually. At the same time, I am reaching outward spiritually in ways that I haven’t before and it feels great.
As far as writing goes, I have to tell you that I’ve found myself with little to say for a while. It seems that my focus has shifted into more hands on visual expression and working with others on a spiritual level and I’m okay with that. I’m not saying that writing is gone forever for me…I honestly don’t know. This year, I won’t be participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge. I’m way too busy with other things to handle it this year. However, I am going to do my best to participate in National Poetry Month again, which is in April. Last year I did both A to Z and Poetry Month simultaneously and while I admit that it was fun, I also felt like I was going crazy sometimes.
I want to thank all of you who have stuck with me as I’ve made the transition from expressing myself almost entirely in writing to almost entirely visually. I’m going to do my best to post something here at least once per week, whether it’s artwork or written word. I’ll see you next week!
