Unity Santa Fe and The Artist's Way


I added a little color to this with water color pencils. I don't really know how to use them, but its just seemed handy, so here you have it!



Rather than retell the story, I am sharing the letter I wrote to an incredible group of friends back in Texas.

Hi ladies!
Today I attended Unity Sante Fe. I was very teary as I sat there alone without my friends surrounding me. It was my first twinge of homesickness. I thought how odd it is that I have known you all such a brief period but it seems like I have known you forever. I looked around and wondered if I would find new friends in that room. I wanted you to know that I think the world of you. It was a special time at Unity Church of New Hope! Also, as a reminder of the special times that are created at your church, Cindy Baker and I donated that giant clock you may see sitting around. The time we had there with you was wonderful and life changing and we want that clock to be a reminder of that. I hope you continue to make the most of every minute!

Now, I am dying to share this with you! I am joining the Artist’s Way group at Unity Santa Fe in October. It is being led by….drum roll please…..JULIA CAMERON!!! Needless to say, I am totally beside myself!!

I hope your Sunday is wonderful. Please try to stay in touch and come visit us in Santa Fe!

Good thoughts,
Lisa

p.s. I decided to start sketching in church again and posting the sketches. It's so good for this girl's ADD. Hopefully, the speakers understand that it actually helps me concentrate on their every word.

I used an almost-out-of-ink ballpoint on raggedy piece of paper. Please forgive how out of practice I am at sketching, scanning, posting. Notice I have moved beyond the "blind in one eye" excuse. No worries, I have a list of excuses that will last way beyond this blog!

OMG...Julia herself? You are so lucky. I have done A WAy several times, taught it and even got to a workshop by Julia years ago but to have her lead you through is just awesome. My A Way group is breaking up after 13 years of meeting every two weeks...members have made life changing decisions, moved on but we had some great times together and even had a collaboration accepted in a juried exhibition. Can't wait to hear more about your experience.
