A CREATIVE DARE

I have mentioned before (but it bears repeating) that I am following an artist by the name of Tracy Weinzapfel.  Tracy maintains an art studio in California from which she broadcasts a weekly video show on Monday nights at 6:00 p.m., a very active Facebook page, as well as a daily blog).  Tracy has challenged her followers to what she calls a "creative dare" for February.  You can read about it here if you're curious or would like to participate--or both!  But, the bottom line is to create what some call a bucket list, others a life list, and still others a dream list.  Not that that isn't challenge enough, but she also challenges us to "embed" that list into an artistic project.  Over the last several days, I have been working on this project, and, today, I called it done!


"A nice journal page," you say, "but where is that list?"  If you read between the lines, and I certainly hope you can't, you will find my list.  I have chosen to keep my list private for, you see, some of the things on my list may seem a bit silly to some (like skinny dipping at midnight when I am 70) and some totally unattainable (like attending a presidential inauguration), but nevertheless, this is my list!

I would encourage you both to create such a list for yourself and to create art!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Please take a moment to JOIN my blog followers if you have not already done so.  You can even subscribe by e-mail, if you wish!

Joy to you!

  1. If you visit me on Martha's Vineyard this summer, I will go skinny dipping with you at midnight, Kay! I wish I had gone to President Obama's inauguration, but I would be game to attend one in the future... why would you think that's unattainable? A lovely page, for sure & I hope you start checking off your bucket list soon! xo

  4. Some of those things are on my list too, like #1 a coast to coast road trip. We will do that and maybe even meet some of your blog friends along the way. (I'm privy to what is pretty well hidden between the lines even with the page close up in front of me.)
