This is part of my work in the Julia Cameron Artist’s Way series. The work this time is from the book the Sound of Paper. The responses are self-examinations and assessments based on work through a daily series of exercises. While I do keep some material offline as it can be very personal and jarring, I often opt to be fairly open about my experiences, both positive and negative.
I swear I’m getting less adventurous, and that’s got to be a bad thing, right? Or maybe I’m being inappropriately self-critical.
The adventures I’d like to have at the moment are:
- Taking that knife class at Kitchen Window. I really want to learn how to cut things properly.
- Starting a corporation – I’ve had some major visions of late. It’s major, and terrifying.
- Trying out a water slide. I have never done that.
- As much as I hate camping, I do actually want to camp under the stars in a desert, ONCE. If it raises the water table, well, at least I’ll be expecting it. I acknowledge between scorpions in shoes and my own negligible survival skills, this could really suck.
- I actually regret never going to Burning Man when friends invited me in my twenties. I’d love to try it now, even if I am one of the freaks in an RV.
- Actually, I’ve never camped in an RV. I don’t want to own one – the insurance plus gas would be a nightmare – but I’d like to try one, once.
- I have often threatened to run for office. I might, someday.
- I would like to learn how to hunt – yes, I read the Hunger Games, but I wanted to learn before that.
- Burlesque. Still want to try it.
- I rarely explore outside the Twin Cities, and I’m not familiar with that much of Minnesota. Perhaps pick a small town and drive to it on a weekend.
