Creative Love Exchange Revisited
I’ve joined the wondrous global Art Therapy + Happiness community.
My first task:
Create an Introduction Wheel, featuring the four Cs in four quadrants. The four Cs? Courage, Compassion, Connection, Contribution. Right up my alley.
The four Cs mean a lot to me. I spend days pondering how I might portray them. I itch to get to my art-making. Finally!
I carve out time and space. I ignore my list of Tasks-To-Do-Now-Or-Your-Life-Will-Topple-Over. I am at play.
