LESSONS FROM THE MOVE: Assumptions Hold Us Back

I was so wrapped up with my indoor moving sale, I forgot to tell you about my latest Fine Art Views column!

You can read LESSONS FROM THE MOVE: Assumptions Hold Us Back.

You can see another view of the moving sale as an event on Facebook.

Looks like someone's ready for a trip to the north woods! But not us. We're off to California, and some other lucky person can own vintage (working!) snowshoes.

I find it just as important to write about my art as to make it. I am fascinated by stories. You can tell when people are speaking their truth--their eyes light up, their voices become strong, their entire body posture becomes powerful and upright. I love it when people get to this place in their work, their relationships, their art. As I work from this powerful place in MY heart, I share this process with others--so they have a strong place to stand, too. Because the world needs our beautiful art. All of it we can make, as fast as we can! Whether it's a bowl, a painting, a song, a garden, a story, if it makes our world a better place, we need to do everything in our power to get it out there.

    1. Surprisingly, none of them sold. AND I just found an even more rare clear baby blue one, probably from the 1930’s. I’ll upload a pic of it soon!

  1. Luann, your column resonates so very much. You line about how you’d rather be scared about moving than too scared to move was EXACTLY how we felt about the move to Nepal. There has most definitely been a sense of liberation after this. We approach everything with a more experimental and See how it goes lightness. And a confidence in our capacity to pick up sticks ( well, the ones we want to pick up) and start over. Good luck with your move. May it be accompanied by a lightness of being. Wendy M

  2. Thank you so much, Wendy, for your words of wisdom! As people share the stories of their own “big moves”, I realize how manageable it really is. One day at a time. One step at a time. Or in our case, one bag at a time! :^D
