            “Using art as Meditation” is what I’ll be teaching in mini-workshops at The Franciscan Retreat Center in Arizona.  Taking time to breath and focusing  on color in a Zen setting and letting creativity come through is such a joy!  It takes only a little while then your juices start to flow. The freedom that comes with creating out of your own mind is such a moving thing.  That is why I’ve come to love to teach.  Who knew!  Taking time to renew and using ART as meditation blows the cobwebs out of the mind.

Truly time is a precious commodity so why do I waste it?  I have good intentions with a list and then I get interrupted.  The interruption is really not that urgent.  I guess I’m procrastinating or maybe I’m not sure of what I want to accomplish or I’m just not focused.  Moving forward in anything requires we take time to think and then act.  Time flies by and the day is over.  I have 4 big things to accomplish today.  1. This blog whch I enjoy doing.  2.  Enter business cards to my e-mail list.  3.  Finish up my newsletter.  4.  4. Write a letter to the new collectors.  

To think about what I’m doing takes a lot of thought.  Whoops I’ve thought of a couple of more things plus I have to run out to the West End art Museum and give my donation of a piece of art to them. What do you do to get things done? Please comment.
