imbolc2Here we are again at the second of February.  That’s Imbolc for the pagans, St. Bridgid’s Day for some of the Christians and Groundhog Day for all.   I have written so many blogs about it, though, I’m going to let it go this year….but happy February 2nd everyone!

I’ll bet most of you think this blog is my only creative outlet.  Well, it isn’t.  Living Light Executive Assistant Terilynn Epperson and I have been working on an art project for a few months now.  Every Monday we draw a card from a tarot deck and have a week to recreate it using collage.  It’s been very fun and very rewarding.  We wanted to come up with a plan that would force us to create something every week that wouldn’t be so cardsbig we wouldn’t do it.   So far – we’ve been dedicated and successful.   It’s sort of like a Sunday School project for grown ups.   And we’re enjoying ourselves immensely, thank goodness, because it’s going to take us, like, a couple years.   Anyhow – I’ve been all about commitments these past few months, like the new juicer, the gym membership and this project and it feels really good.  As I’ve said before, I’m better at  sticking to things when I’m bossed around, but lately it seems like I’m getting to where I can boss myself around.  Progress!

teach learnSpeaking of progress, next week Jennifer Cornbleet will be teaching her class Advanced Instructor Training.   I spoke with Jennifer this week about this advanced level class and let me say, if you’re at all interested in being a raw food educator, this is the class for you.  Especially if you’re anything like me, and maybe need some direction (bossing) to get you started.  Jennifer’s experience is invaluable – she can edit your recipes, get your demos television ready and make your website the best it can be!  This class is a great jumpstart for your raw career.  Unless you want it to be a years long project like the cards, I suggest you sign up today!
