I got a good start on my reading for the year this month. I have set a goal to read 104 books this year. I am already a little behind schedule, but I am feeling okay about my progress.
The holidays are not a motivated time for me. And while this year wasn't too bad, I did not get as much reading done when I was traveling as I had hoped.
I have been focusing a little bit on books about creativity. I have started drawing and painting more. I find this work really fulfilling. I also got the idea about creating a calendar/to do list system that is specifically customized for the lives of creative people. It is just an idea I have right, but the books I have been reading on creativity have helped me with some of the ideas I am having.
It is exciting to be reconnecting with my creative life. Now that school has started again, I am worried that may go to they wayside.
I finished SIX books:
1. Children of Eden
2. The Dot
3. Year of the Cow
4. Steal Like an Artist
5. Howl's Moving Castle
Hope to read soon:
Art Before Breakfast
I have been enjoying getting a little more engrossed in my reading over this past month. My traveling time was very restful, yet felt very disconnected from life. Otherworldly.
