The Artist's Way Check In - Week Three

1. Did my morning pages 7/7 this week...
2. Artist Date - went to the hardware store yesterday for some light panels and while I was there I went out into the nursery section...I was in a rather bad mood yesterday...prickly this is what I came home with (I think it suited my mood rather nicely!):

Its called a "Moon Cactus" - from little label on the pot: What looks like a colorful bloom is actually a special cactus that has had the green chlorophyll bred out of the plant...then its grafted onto the strong green upright stock. The Moon Cactus comes in a variety of colors - yellow, orange, red and pink...very cute cactuses! It's been transplanted to a green bowl that I got at Target for a buck.
3. No synchronicity that I can remember this week - have had lots of it in the past though...(by the by...any of you read "The Celestine Prophecy"? The first of the insights is 'to be aware of what seem to be coincidences'..very similar to synchronicity. DH and I like to say when it happens: "There ARE NO coincidences..")
4. No burning issues...

Task 6:
Called my best friend and chatted with her for a while. We were going to try to get together to go see Harry Potter but she's been working a lot of overtime and it just didn't work out this week. But we had a nice chat! She is very supportive - in fact, she is the one that got me into quilting in the first place!
Also...I found the email address a couple of weeks ago while doodling around in Google of what I hope will turn out to be a good friend from work that I had about 25 years ago, around the time my son was born - we lost contact when she moved to Hawaii (no email back then!)... I finally got up enough nerve this weekend to send an email to find out if its the same gal...I really hope it is!

How fun - I hope it does turn out to be your old friend. That would really be interesting to catch up with what has happened in each other's lives since you lost touch. I read the Celestine Prophecy a long time ago - hadn't thought about that in awhile. I'm trying to be more aware of the synchronicity - or lack of coincidence, whatever you want to call it, in my life. Often I think I just let everything slide right by me without paying any attention.

Saw on the retreat list that you'll be at the AZ Retreat in February -- I'm one of the hostesses and Hilda will be there too. Can't wait to meet you for real!

Hi Suze,
I just joined so I've a bit of catching up to do...NO READING! I forgot about that horror from reading through the book a couple of years ago. Good Luck ;))

The celestine prophecy book dropped everything into place for me years ago and I still live by the intuition thing which leads to the synchronicities. Though it can be a scary thing to dedicate to it's lead me on a truely amazing journey. Here's to the energy between all living things :) Let it flow (sorry I'm sounding like a hippy typecast now)
