I promised you a new focus this year, so read on for what’s coming up next.
Twenty-five years ago, Julia Cameron wrote her best seller “The Artist’s Way”, a book that has helped countless people rediscover their creative selves.

Wow! Doesn’t that intrigue you? It does me, and Cee. So we want to start a book club where we can all explore it together.
Every week we’ll post a discussion of what was in the most recent reading assignment. We’ll talk about what we discover and uncover about ourselves. Weekly summaries will be on private pages on this site, open only to book club members. We’ll also form a private FaceBook group for book club members to encourage and support each other.
Who can join? Anyone. While it’s geared more for people of a certain age, there is still plenty of content relevant for younger people.
What do you charge for membership? Nothing but your sincere desire to learn and grow. We may decide to charge a small fee in time to help defray costs of hosting a book club site, but we’ll let you know well in advance.
What do I need to buy? Will I need supplies? You will have to buy or borrow a copy of the book. (You can follow the link to Amazon and read a sample.)
We’re really excited to get your input, to gauge your interest. I think this project will be exciting and fun. Cee and I would love for you to join us. Add a comment below and let us know if you are interested. But don’t wait. We want to get started on the 25th of February.
Lots of love, hugs, rainbows and balloons.
