Last week I attended a lovely organ concert as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations at our church. We have a marvelous pipe organ, and it was a treat to hear it in all its glory. During the concert, I found myself sketching on the program, something I've done since childhood (the best are those with lots of empty space!) 

PRISM in transition
A new "download" for PRISM was the result, and this week I brought some of that to the canvas. I've been enjoying watching the Wildheart Entrepreneurial series with host Shereen Sun (just begun, and free!!) I loved the first interviews with SARK and Dr. John Mills!!
Stirring their delightful interview, she identified the triad we deal with in varying degrees:

  • Inner feelings
  • Inner Critic
  • Inner Wise one (Musé) 
PRISMatic Light Emerging
SARK suggests we identify and acknowledge our feelings when they arise, which can help us return to center more quickly than if we try to surpass them. Simply saying, "I see you, I hear you, I acknowledge you," invites softening and relief.
For the Inner Critic, she suggests reassignment. She called hers Scarcity Girl for some time, (critic did NOT like that!) 
So shifted to targeting to  Miss Preserver of Resources. Since California has been dealing with drought, SARK have Miss P. a new job assignment, to work for the State of California Water Bureau, and help out! If Miss P. pays SARK a visit, she is gently reminded of her (much!) more important job!! 
And of course we engage the wise Musé when we engage our creativity!

What's on your creative table this week? I'm continuing to play on the PRISMatic light, and prepare foot my weekend Playshop, Return to Innocence.

Happy blog challenge and PPF!

Nadya, this is so gorgeous with all the colors of the rainbow and then some! There is nothing like hearing a pipe organ played with expertise. It's been a while since I've heard one, but they always send shivers up my spine.

Beautiful, you were obviously moved by the music! The movement in your piece is almost musical in feel! Vibrant and wonderful!

Beautiful combination of art and music. Our church just celebrated our 125th and I thought that was a lot.

Thank you!!
In early fall, we had a field trip to the original church site, a stone marker beside the little country cemetery, just South of town! There's another old church on that hill, where I've attended sunrise services, didn't realize ours began on that hill as well!
Our pastor received a grant for the concerts, and a storytelling workshop, as she's collecting stories, old and new. At the service, we read sections from the 1840s & 50 minutes, one woman was reprimanded for "visiting dance halls" (though she didn't dance!!)

Lovely Art work, I love the colors in prisms when the light shines through and was trying to imagine your orchestra experience! It must have been memorizing and happy :)

Isn't it fun to see the PRISMatic light? I'm really enjoying this way of painting and seeing. Thank you for your kind words!
