Even more imaginary lives:

5. French cuisine chef
I may not have done my Morning Pages everyday this past week, but when I did do them, they were very revealing. Really explored the whole 'crazymakers' idea in depth. Looking back at the crazymakers I've encountered over the years, I can see just how detrimental they were to my creativity and my life in general. Oh, the constant drama. What a waste of time and energy. I find I have so much more energy when there aren't any crazymakers around. It is my wish for all my fellow creative souls on this TAW journey that you are able to eliminate the crazymakers from your lives-- and if that just isn't possible, I hope that you can minimize your contact with them. No one needs that kind of energy drain.
I also took the whole search for identity to heart and explored that issue quite a bit. And I realized why I've been so blocked lately with my creativity-- because I haven't been true to myself. My pagan path led me to my inner creative Goddess and then I denied her. As pretty and addicting as they are, I just don't want to make any more lentil beads. I don't really even want to focus on jewelry. I want to make mosaic shrines and egg-shaped Goddesses and tarot boxes and herbal runes and... more creations that come from the heart, that are created with joy. That's what I started out doing, and then I lost my way. Now that I've identified the problem, I've broken through my creative block. I got out my clays yesterday and created an autumn Greenman. I know where I want to go with my work again and I'm going there.
