In taking my mindful day of enjoyment yesterday, I was reminded of Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. Again. One of the two requirements – along with morning pages – was a weekly artist’s date. An activity by yourself where you refill your well. Give creativity something to pull from.
I find it quite easy to drain the well if I’m not taking care of myself. If I’m not feeding it. At the same time, just a little meal pays dividends, and I can see why a weekly “date” could be enough to keep an artist going indefinitely.
