I found this week to be fairly easy and I have done most of the tasks and the exploration of this chapter on my own. I did my morning pages every day. YES that is going well for me. I took an Artist date to all the local galleries. This week the annual Gallery walk took place so I was exposed to all kinds of art. The thing that dismayed me is that there were so few people out compared to previous years. In addition to paintings and sculpture their was a n exhibit of quilting at one of the locations. The women who did the pieces really went beyond traditional and that was really great to see.

Just yesterday I had an synchronistic experience looking at blogs. First one talked about grasshoppers and the very next one I read talked about Grasshoppers too. I thought that was significant. I looked up Grasshopper on the net and discovered this.
Grasshopper Wisdom includes
Jumps across space and time - Leaps of faith - Jumping without knowing where you will land - Astral travel - Leaping over obstacles - New leaps forward - Ability to change careers quickly
That is so appropriate to the Artist Way Journey and the Gut Art class I have been taking. I especially liked "Jumping without knowing where you will land" I think that is what are is all about. Perhaps the leaping over obstacles is overcoming those artistic blocks that you have placed on your self. I think this week has been pretty profound after all.
