Patiently waiting for someone special...

Been busy catching up on my drawing and creating for the courses I'm currently doing. I'm 'just about' up to date, which I think is the closest I've ever been to up to date, so I'm feeling good about it.

I'm also feeling good about my special blog guest. Yes, I am having a special guest visit me, right here, on Friday (US) or Saturday (if you're from Australia). My visitor is one of my favourite authors and creativity specialist Eric Maisel. He is going to be generous enough to answer some questions I have about his new book "Ten Zen Seconds".

I've had a copy of this gorgeous book for about a week and I'm excited! Well, you'd be excited too if you had a very simple technique you could learn in an afternoon that gave you the power to 'centre' yourself in an instant! That's right. Instantly. Well, actually, you can have it too. And I'll tell you how, right here on Friday/Saturday.

So far I've used the technique to help me with overwhelment about how much work I have to do in such a small amount of time, anxiety over waiting for my marks and feedback, and to give me self-confidence in an environment I would otherwise feel I didn't fit in. And yes, the results were instant. I've been feeling what Eric describes as 'centred' - calm, controlled and directed. And happy! Wonderful!

So, yes, I'm excitedly waiting too... patiently... waiting... I can't wait!

This is really good,you really get a sense of the roundness, the shape of the leg. Is it charcoal?

This is so very well done. My eye just keeps going round and round the image. I won't be home this weekend or near a computer so I will check back on Monday for an update!
