A positive Lenten discipline--?

Friday, February 08, 2008

I usually don't tell others what I am giving up for Lent, since Jesus tells us not to practice our piety before others. But I don't mind sharing that I'm still thinking about a POSITIVE practice that I want to take up this Lent: working on art every week.

I have neglected it sadly for quite a few months, & I feel part of myself has been abandoned. I really need my art.

Giving up a particular thing for Lent has given me a bit more time each day, so I want to make it fruitful. Sunday evening is the target time for art; if something else gets scheduled then, I will seek to open up another space that particular week so that painting isn't neglected.

    Good luck on your art endeavors. At one time I was very active in music and theater - then I let other things get in the way for several years. I literally began having "fish out of water" dreams. I mean literally. In my dreams, I was running around trying to save a goldfish that had no water in its bowl. Once I recognized that I was missing my creative side, I got back into music and the dreams went away!
