Despite the heat- seek what keeps your art alive! Music? Writing? Painting?? Award winning author Julia Cameron in The Sound of Paper: Starting from Scratch reminds us, "Those who provoke us into art do so by their interest and enthusiasm. They are curious about life. They themselves have not given up on life. They are interested in mysteries--interested the mystery of what we have to say. In a word, muses find us amusing." Seek those who encourage your projects.
If you are having trouble pursuing that spark-- remember the kind look or words from the friend, aunt, teacher- who is truly interested in your art. My aunt is always remarking that my sweet uncle would be so happy to see me painting!
Nurture your pursuits!! -- as we water (sparingly in the drought) the small plants in the yard that give us joy - and fill the birdbath!

Editor's Pick - 5-9 tonight The Glass Outhouse (yes there is a real glass outhouse) and delightful art gallery at the edge of the horizon on the road east from 29 Palms to Wonder Valley. I would not miss tonight's 6th anniversary celebration. Music by the Luminators, a variety of guests, art and the ever expanding vista of the desert. Founder, Laura Seidl, has the heart to support artists and create a magical place. In the gallery for June, Janet Cole, Christine Lamb, and Olive Toscani.

writer, artist, observer, social commentator. I arrived to the Hi Desert 3 decades ago - to enter my chosen field. At the time, I saw the vast horizon as the end of the world. Now, I see it as the beginning of creativity.
