Travel journals are one of my favorite ways to create, but there’s no need to wait for a Parisian or Thai overseas escapade. You can have a small adventure in the now—like, tomorrow-kind-of *now*. All you need are a few of your favorite supplies (that—guess what—you already have), and a willingness.
I believe in living life deliberately, and part of that is creating everyday adventures. One of the ways I do that is through the artist date. The artist date is a concept by the great Julia Cameron.
For me, it’s a way to romance my artist self. Artist dates always lead to a filling of my creative well and an outpouring of art. In this mini class, I’ll take you along on a planned artist date with me, and show you how to incorporate these into your own life.
