My Working Retreat

Today, and for the next 2 weeks I’m on a self-imposed “working” retreat.  Clearing the “white space” was not easy.  But the work to get here, was worth having done, because the work I WANT TO DO can now happen!  LOL.

Now, it’s time to allow.  I will allow my normal routine and responsibilities to fall away.  I’ll surrender to the writing, art making, reading and studying I seriously desire.

You see recently, I made a firm decision to begin hosting art retreats.  It’s a longing I’ve had for quite some time, but I struggled – finding a perfect location to lease and making it work financially was just not gelling.  Finally, I let go of the brick and mortar idea and decided to take it on the road.  Hence, Creative Nomad Retreat(s) was born!

The first art retreat I’ll host is still months away, but there’s content I want to create for before and during the retreat, so that is a major part of what I’ll be doing during this time.  There’s also art making, a bit of blogging, personal journaling and catching up on an online class to do.  Dream time for other future art retreats is also on the to-do list!  All of this will be interspersed with early walking, swimming, good food and rest.

I’m so happy, I almost can’t stand it!  There is much to be done, but this is the work I’d PAY to do!  It’s work I’ve CHOSEN for myself – work 54 years in the making.

So I’m off to whistle while I work, my dears!  Catch up with you later.  AND if you’re interested in learning more about the first Creative Nomad Retreat, go here.  There’s one spot left!
