Hi! Thank you for listening.

This is a replay from last year, but I have to admit I laugh everytime I hear and thought you might need a laugh.
This coming Thursday, June 16 I have a free Zoom workshop so you can sample some of the things I do at retreats and workshops. There's more about that here.

Take care

And here's where you can find more of my posts.

Sometimes there's a double meaning to a quote, other times a single meaning, and still other times... no meaning at all. Which one is it in this episode?

Are you allowed to make up your own quotes, or is that going through the door you were told not to go into?

BTW.. I love Anne Lamott, I highly recommend all of her books and thank her for her wisdom.

You are invited to this tea part of the imagination.
It is a delicious thing to use the imagination, to exist in any universe of our choosing. To simultaneously be villain or heroine, to be an autumn afternoon where a red leaf  lets go of its hold on a maple tree and surrenders in floppy grace to the ground. The imagination is a vacation from reality into a playground of associations, inventions, and daydreams of chance possibilitie...

In this episode, we go back a bit in time ... but the sentiment remains the same:  Paying attention to the senses is a good way to get into the creative moment.

Sensoria, played by Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, Sadie Spikes, gives us this wisdom, and despite or maybe BECAUSE of ruminations, a creative story emerges ... along with a refreshing sea breeze.

I'd love to hear whether you enjoyed the Moment with a Muse shorter podcast...

There’s something beyond the intellect that’s calling you to engage in this love affair with the present moment  – it’s instinctual and validating. Engaging in creativity in a conscious liberated way without the pressure to ...
