Creative Wednesdays

A good friend of mine reached quite a low point in life about 6 months ago. She called me up and said she was going on a course called ‘The Artist’s Way’, that could potentially help her through this difficult time. Part of the course was to undertake something creative every week which was different from the previous week and would I join her? I said I usually had Wednesday afternoon off and would be happy to share that time with her and our “Creative Wednesdays’ were born.
We have come a long way since then. We have seen quite a few films, taken long walks, gone to museums and visited gardens and climbed high hills. We have sat and chatted and sat and drawn together and the experience has been totally worthwhile. It has been an opportunity for us both to take time out for ourselves.
She finished the course ages ago. We probably spend every other Wednesday together now but we still focus on the creative. She has come a long way in that time and actually so have I.
This week we made flowers from willow that look good inside and out…a bit like us.
