This is the journal of my "Year Long Journey of Creative and Self Discovery." Earlier this year I found myself running in circles and struggling to find a direction. I was challenged by a friend to commit to a blog for one year. She encouraged me to develop a weekly structure, and to post every day, even if I have nothing to post.
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps without even knowing it, you will live along some distant day into the answers. - Rainer Maria Rilke

So where does that leave me with my creative journey this week? Well today I started kneading clay so make a clay model of St. Basil's. I'm using my son's very old polymer clay and it's like a rock. Since it's going to take a while, and I really know what I want to do, and don't want to do it badly, I am going to extend week 8 into week 9.
I almost forgot to mention that anyone in the Charlotte, NC area,
