Hi Mike,

Thanks for the review and the question!

You’re right, they are pretty organic at this point, but I really love the very first experiment. I feel like it’s one of the weirdest ones, but that might be why it’s so helpful! I find it like an emotional exorcism any time I feel off. It seems to also entertain my dog.

Let me know if you have any favourites too!

Hope you’re well.

Perhaps I'm not in the same category of people that could find something beneficial in this book, but I found it to be a bit shallow/superficial and did not inspire much.

I've enjoyed this book by Marlo Johnson. The book acts as a guide, but every individual will interpret it in their own way. And I had a lot of fun interpreting it in my way, through illustrations. Each day, I picked up the book and indulged in a new ritual. My personal creative journey brought me closer to my creative purpose.

You'll see it really inspired my instagram posts on @shilpartistry

A series of meditations

The book is simple enough, a series of thoughts and actions one can do to explore their own artistic side. I was amazed by how many I already do and found a couple I would love to try. Just gotta be brave.
