Procrastinating

Is procrastination resistance? You betcha!

And as such, I finally migrated this blog that has been so good to me over the time I've been here.
I agonized over how to do it, and when I did, it was seamless.

All you lovely readers, encouraging commenters, and wonderful fans, I invite you to please travel with me to the new blog/website. It could be a bumpy ride until I learn the new lingo there, but hey, it's an adventure we can have together. And the scenic route is always prettier.

The coffee is still hot there, too.



Note: Please hover over the "very interesting" question above, click and you will be transported to my new blog space and website where I yap about art, life, and fitting it all in.

The War of Art and the Wow


Yes, wow and The War of Art in the same sentence! I know you will want to know why and I’m about to explain. As you’ve noticed, I’ve been re-reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, to get my mojo back in action. It’s not an easy thing to push aside resistance and overwhelm. It’s the bane of an artist’s life. Mr. Resistance drops by with Mrs. Overwhelm and they end up having a party at my place without my permission. They’re lousy house guests, too, leaving all manner of distress in my house.

Greek Independence Day Parade

This weekend was a great break from the usual for me. The Greek Independence Day was held yesterday and as usual I participated by marching with the dance group we belong to. 


See you on the flip side where I've posted a couple of photos of the event.

Back to The War of Art

If it's Tuesday, it's back to The War of Art! And boy do I need the kick in the pants this book gives me whenever I open it's pages. Mr. Resistance is having his way with me...

Fear as Resistance


RESISTANCE IS FUELED BY FEAR
“Resistance has no strength of its own. Every ounce of juice it possesses comes from us. We feed it with power by our fear of it. Master that fear and we conquer Resistance.”
from The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield
