For this time period, I am working through Julia Cameron and Mark Bryan’s book Money Drunk, Money Sober before I work through the Prosperous Heart. The following blog entries are in response to prompts and experiences from the book. I see this as an extension of my Artist’s Way work. Some of my entries are jarring and highly personal – any program of sobriety and self-improvement demands admitting dysfunction both personally and in family, and it also calls to admit some painful truths. While not everything I work on appears here, a number of realities do. I have a genuine body of work thanks to my work on the Artist’s Way program, and I can’t ignore the changes the continual commitment has brought about. Because of that, I also can’t ignore what going further into the harder aspects of the program – like facing money issues – has the potential to improve.
- Good health.
- I’m starting to lean towards a townhouse, because I’m starting to REALLY want a ritual space of my own again.
- A second car, or an HourCar membership if it’s geographically convenient (close to a garage.) Would have come in handy today. But their billing system essentially punishes you for using AND not using their vehicles, which sucks.
- A subscription to Artful Blogging.
- Another pair of calf boots – mine are starting to wear out.
- A new laptop, preferably an ASUS with the number pad.
- A fancier camera that I can use with a remote. I have a high end point-and-shoot now (that might as well BE a DSLR) but it’s looking like if I want to keep blogging, I have to upgrade.
