I came up to you pick-a-place and told you that I make these really cool, unique bowls about Life on Planet
Earth, would you believe me?
There are lots of ways to know that something is honest and being able to caress
the evidence is one of them.
IN THE STUDIO
Finding Your Own Voice and Evidence Orientation
You will come away from this Experience with "Something."
Part of the "Something" will be Intangible. That
part will be The Experience itself and the things you learned that are now part of you. You will recall these Lessons
later and use them as your own. They will add to your newest effort and make it something more
than it could have been before The Experience.
Another part of the "Something"
will be Tangible. These are the "things" you will create during Your Experience. These tangible
objects are the Evidence of a Journey Taken - Your Journey. They are your proof that something happened,
that you went somewhere. They are touchstones to your creative future. They will remind you of where you've
been and inspire your next Journey.
Your Journey + Your Lessons + Tangible Evidence =
Your Experience + Your Lessons + Tangible Evidence = Your Journey
+ Your Lessons + Tangible Evidence = Your Experience + Your Lessons +
Tangible Evidence = Your Journey
You can see how it all
rolls up into a nice ball that somersaults itself forward. And it gives you, as a creative person, something
in The Center to create around ... a nugget made up of who you are. This is the place from which YOUR VOICE
You will know when you are working from this Center and you will
know when the voice is your own. And if you aren't sure, keep working. You will
find it; you will recognize it when it speaks.
