Prompt 9 in Traci Bautista's art JOURNALING daily is to write about morning rituals. I am an early morning person; no matter how late I go to bed, I'm up early. My ritual revolves around morning pages (Julia Cameron). Coffee ... fireplace ... journal ... that starts the day perfectly. I've done morning pages for years, religiously in some form or another. It is a way to clear my brain of "gunk and junk" ... allowing space for ideas. Lists are always there; it seems I'm driven to create lists of things to do each day (I wish I were driven to 'do' all the things on my list!). I think people would be a lot happier and satisfied with life if they did morning pages. But that's my bias.
I am a semi-retired university professor (aka Dr. J) who engages in various creative explorations. I love creating and I particularly love sharing my thoughts on creativity with others. I’m hoping readers of this blog will find inspiration and share thoughts to inspire others.
