I'm teaching this course because I need it.
Christine Mason Miller, talking of her e-course, The Conscious Booksmith.
I've signed up to do another workshop in the months ahead. Like the marketing workshop, this one is absolutely vital for me to move forward into a world I know nothing about.
And so when a woman I have been 'following' online for years, a woman whose work I love, and whose way of putting herself out into the world fills me with respect, offers a workshop on how to make my book real while fitting it into the flow of my own chaotic life ... then obviously I'm going to sign up.
It helps that it is affordable otherwise I might have been left at the window looking in like a kid longing to join but unable to. But that's something else about Christine. Her self-confessed mission is about 'Creating spaces, gatherings, businesses, communities, brands and containers that inspire healing, transformation, and stepping more fully into the truth of the world's relentless need for our unique voice in the world.'
In the months ahead, as I step into the flow with my photography workshops, I will also be hard at work on this book I've been dreaming about for years. And while it has changed from 'all about me and that city I love' to being 'all about that city', it's an idea that has never disappeared. Only altered and bloomed into something much more than I expected. And I love what it is set on becoming.
