Hi Daisym, Nadezda,

I've been working my way through the book by Julia Cameron "Walking in this World". She has a number of practical exercises for developing and nurturing our creative selves.

At the heart of the book is the method of "morning pages" 3 uncensored, unfiltered, stream-of-consciousness pages of whatever drivel comes to mind at 6am or whenever normal people get up.

Sadly, Cameron comments on the nature of psychotherapy, and displays her naive understanding of the psychotherapeutic process. She places her method and the psychotherapeutic method at opposite ends of the spectrum for healing oneself.

Still though, the exercise has helped me get energy to take on more tasks and to play with my beads, starting my own little business. That much I give her credit for. I didn't even tell my T about the jewelry business until this week!

I'll take a peek at the book you recommended, Daisy. Thanks much!
