Never give up...

"Never Give Up" collage by Lani with help from FlyPaper Textures.C

Creativity coach Eric Maisel wrote in one of his newsletters, "I have... seen even serious depression lift after only one creativity coaching session. This happens because a client has renewed hope, a renewed sense of purpose, a clearer picture of what next steps to take in her creative life, and a renewed sense that she matters and must act as if she matters."

But I think it's more than just a coaching session.  I believe that creativity is all about love and sharing what ever gifts you have with others.

Over at 14 Secrets we just finished a month of prompts that were very inspiring and sweet. This was to help us work with our feelings over the loss of a friend, Deb Gilchrist, to channel them into something that will be of benefit to ourselves and others. I put all the prompts into an eZine so if you are interested in a month of art prompts, I'd be happy to send you the zine. Just drop me a line at lanipuppetmaker at mac dot com.
