Today is brought to you by hot salted caramel cider.
We’re going to perform an exercise:
Close your eyes and completely relax your body, from head to toe. Now, in your mind’s eye, visualize where you’d like to be in your artistic life one year from now. Do this repeatedly over the next several days. Towards the end of this week–say next Sunday evening–write down or draw what you see. Please feel free to share in the comments, and we’ll chat more about this next week.
