“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
― Rumi, The Essential Rumi
This is what I have been doing this year – unfolding my own myth. It’s been there, packed away, shifting shape size as my life expanded and contracted. But it is only this year that I have truly had the courage to dig for it and shake it out in the bright sunshine.
The more I have honoured this need to create through my writing and my art, the more creative I have felt in all aspects of my life including homeschooling and the paths we wish to follow as a family and for myself.
I am saying YES to projects that make me feel alive and that are congruent with who I am and my unfolding myth.
One of these projects is creating a small online summer publication with my good friend Brooke who writes beautiful poetry over at her blog at Violicious.
Today we are happy to share with it! We are extremely proud of our Book of Hours – mamas edition:
It has been a labour of love and we are happy to present our summer mag – a free, bite-sized, self-published, fun online project and we are thrilled to launch it!
And one more thing, I am over at Simple Homeschool guest posting today too! Read about the greatest and most unexpected gift I have received from homeschooling my children. This gift actually changed the way I live the rest of my life.
I also have one more project in the works that I hope to share soon. This project has given me the permission to own my artist side and I can’t wait to share it here….so stay tuned!
I am excited at all these upcoming projects that have given me the opportunity to be a visual storyteller, to be an artist, and to be a writer. Thank you for coming along for the ride!
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”
