The artist’s way:day one

“The artist’s way”by Julia Cameron.

After being told for years i should read this book.Here we are.

I liked this quote:

“The position of the artist is humble.He is essentiallly a channel.”
   – Piet Mondrian

“The music of this opera (Madamr Butterfly)was dictated to me by God;I was merely instrumental in putting it on paper and communicating it to the public”
  -Giacomo Puccini

“straightaway the ideas flow in upon me ,directly from God.”
  -Johannes Brahams

“We must accept that this creative pulse within us is God’s creative pulse itself”
  -Joseph Chilton Pearce

“It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God.”
  -Mary Daly

“Every blade og grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers,”Grow,grow”
  -The Talmud

“what we play is life”
  -Louis Armstrong

“Creativity is harnessing universality and making it flow through your eyes.”
  -Petrr Koestenbaum

Basic principals

1.Creativity is the natural order of life.Life is energy:pure creative energy.

Dialogue with Julia(made up)

Seagull:So Julia,where have you been all of my life?
Julia:drinking .
trying to imitate  the great writers.
Seagull:Is it necesary to drink or take drugs?Didn’t Dali say:”I AM drugs”?

Julia:Mmmm be perfectly honest,i am no salvador Dali,so i thought i would compensate. you know who is an artist-does,he who does not know how to create-writes about creativity..
seagull:yes.well. been there. done that..
Julia:so why are you reading again about art instead of doing art?

seagull:computer disc full.
i need human intervention.the divine is a bit distant and there you are..

Julia:yes. i am here for you.
you can just flip through my pages,follow my planned package combating self doubt.

seagull:all aboard!

Day one:
candle light dinner next to a cathedral.
observing humanity.
Julia’s book spilling inspirational quotes.listening to Italian radio.


love amoure liebe

love is where we went wrongand where we go right.
cupid arrows aimed at the heart.
self love injected.
