We Don't Need No More Information  
Dear Creative Friend,

 There's so much information out there these days, charged with opinion, advice, fascination, facts ... most with good
intentions, some originated in dubiation (a personal derivative of
We are wired to want information, to learn, grow,
express, meet our potential and curiosity ... but if you're like me, it's overwhelming. We can easily burn out, avoiding and becoming numb to those things that bring us joy.
I've been more inclined lately to take a breath, allow for a space between the worlds, notice that art, music and ideas for writing emerge when I sit on the back
patio noticing the blue slice above the telephone wires ushering a cloud on its way through to
certain evaporation.

Or have a cup of tea without multitasking. Those are the moments that recharge me so I have a space with which to once again fill.

[30 seconds later.] Welcome back.

I've opened up The Muse is IN Office Hours to you if you want a
little respite from the world in the form of a nurturing guided daydream, a reunion with your creative faculties, and, bonus: Some kind and easy unpressured ways to deal with your
overwhelm. November 19 and/or December 10, 2019.

If you're in San Diego, you're invited to have Creativi-tea with me in person: November, January and February. To celebrate the creation of Creativi-teas, here's a free coloring PDF.
If you'd like the ultimate in rejuvenation, getting out of the crazy mind to create and out of the crazy world to restore your sanity and your 2020 focus: The Muse in Winter, Taos in February still has some openings.

Study Says Art Makes
You Mentally Healthier,
Even If You’re Not Good At It

"Not all of us are artists. But all of us can paint, sculpt, draw, sketch, and do some forms of an artsy thing, on varying levels. Some of us are just naturally more gifted than others, but it doesn’t matter. If you enjoy it, do it. Not only is there a possibility that you might like it, but also a possibility of making you mentally healthier. Yes, you heard it – mentally healthier." More here
