The response to yesterday’s beginning of these prompts was just tremendous! Thank you for reading, responding, and spreading the news. I’m so glad to be sharing ideas that come from the deepest places in my heart and soul!
This is Day 2 of a series of daily prompts for written, visual, or art journalling, or just for pondering. For more background information, see the Intro page https://catcharissage.com/2014/10/29/announcing-sixty-days-of-visual-journalling-prompts/, or this post on visual journalling: https://catcharissage.com/2014/07/12/talking-about-journals/.
It’s Sunday, the day of the week I’ve chosen as my Depth Dimension Day, otherwise known as Sabbath, “The Lord’s Day”, the day of rest, etc. On my DDD’s (Depth Dimension Days) I try to have what Julia Cameron in her book The Artist’s Way calls an Artist’s Date, where I do something or go somewhere to “fill the well” of spiritual and/or creative ideas. Some days it’s merely looking through a book filled with photos of art; other days it’s a concert or a meeting with an inspiring friend. On DDD’s I try to keep the computer to a minimum, or at least to use computer time consciously, intentionally. You can’t drink forever from a cup that isn’t filled regularly. Do you have a Depth Dimension Day on a regular basis? Do you have a Sabbath or Oasis Day? What do you do on those days, or what do you refrain from doing? What about today? Write, draw, or image what today’s DDD brings.
I love the sashaying part the best!! I’m glad you live the life you do; I’m sure it helps you be the giving, loving person that you are. Cat
Most of my days are Depth Dimension Days~ filled with taking in colors, textures , feelings, smells and tastes (the way I did today eating corn fritters while reading ORPHAN TRAIN and ending the meal I ate alone in a restaurant with a Brownie Sundae topped with whipping cream and nuts. The contrast of cold vanilla ice cream and warm specialty chocolates dancing on my tongue.) If I need a special day I’ll get myself down to the river in my backyard or to the beach nearby or read WHERE WOMEN CREATE magazines or connect with other creatrixes to see what is blowing their skirt up or making their heart sing in tune with the stars. Drum. Dance. Flute. Paint. Play. Pray. Sashay.
