My goal over the last few weeks has been to “get things done”, because upon review, I hadn’t completed as many things on my summer-do list as I thought.
So, once into hyper-drive, here is a very short list of some things of beauty that kept me focused.
Rising Strong is Brené Brown’s latest book about how to deal with failure, stuckness and discomfort; I read chapters in those moments my Inner Critic took over! A valuable read for anyone striking out into new territory.
Saw a couple of movies after a hard day’s work, but only “Ricki and the Flash” stayed with me. Themes of staying the course, trusting your art, but also not judging others who may have different pursuits resonated with me. And watching Meryl Streep transform is always inspiring!

The Sketchbook Project Mobile Library visited the Toronto area this past week, and I was so thrilled to see many people view the touring sketchbooks and also buy blank ones to start their own!! You can participate at https://www.sketchbookproject.com/participate
Still lots left on the summer-do list, so I’ve got to get back to it!
