Sometimes it can be hard to accept and unfurl our own creativity. Shadowy doubts, coupled with other people’s comments–or their seeming indifference, can make us believe that creativity is for other people, but not for us.
In this hands-on workshop, we’ll work with these questions and more, individually and as a group:
· How does it feel to think of yourself as creative?
· What happens when you let yourself create without judgement?
· What will give you the courage the create on a regular basis?

Monday morning I woke up having just experienced a lucid dream.
I had just come out of a large building. It was in a city (I have been dreaming of being in big cities lately). I realized that I was dreaming.
I looked at my surroundings. Everything looked so real even though I knew it was a dream. I did not want to lose this dream, which can happen if you get too excited about knowing that you are in a lucid dream. So I started to look at the ground, thinking that by focusing on something mundane I can keep things on an even keel and the dream will continue.

In a dream last night
I found myself
a hateful enemy’s garage
I came by,
Hoping to admire you
from a distance.
One of my sisters just crossed the 50 year mark. To celebrate, I made her a short animation.
