SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
Last night was the Seagull holiday party. We had pizza and prosecco at the salon before heading over to Joe’s Pub to see Bridgett Everett perform. It’s become a mini-tradition. It’s really fun and raunchy. And the drinks were strong, so I got pretty drunk.
I was woozy all day today, but I think that’s passed. I got home kinda late and then stayed up later because I can’t ever just go straight to bed when I get home. I need a little wind down time. Me time.
The holidays mean bad-for-you food, too much booze, and not enough exercise. I really need to get it together. Maybe I need the new year to come. It’s so refreshing.
Just entered Week 6 of The Artist’s Way. “Recovering a Sense of Abundance” is what it’s called. There is a lot discussed in the chapter that’s really speaking to me. It might be my favorite chapter so far…
The chapter starts off with a lot of discussion of God. But she doesn’t mean God God, like the Christian God, but the energy between us. Our soul. The thing that drives us to create. (Or as one queen I know suggested, “The Source”. I like to use that term. It really helps.)
I read this chapter on the train this morning on my way to work. I kept getting worried that someone was going to look at what I was reading and be like, “Oh, this dude’s a Jesus freak and he’s reading God stuff on the train.” (Because I’m actually that asshole on the train who looks over someone’s shoulder and makes quick assumptions.)
I forget the point I was going to make. But basically there’s a lot of talk of doing what you really want to do and also indulging yourself in small pleasures. “Luxuries”.
It’s a good chapter.
I’ll stop talking now.
