What’s changing for me isn’t just starting to use pen and ink again, although that is delightful.
A whole new vein of energy has opened up, like a vein of gold waiting to be mined.
I just had an interview with the guy I contacted to clean and organize my apartment. Since I have been thinking of doing this for years, this represents major movement forward.
I have also been spending a lot of very enjoyable time fooling around with the pens I found in the back room when I was rummaging through my old art supplies.
I had forgotten how much fun this used to be and it’s not a part of using a fountain pen that most people are aware of.
I salvaged eight or ten fountain pens of various types and have been resurrecting them with hot soapy water and TLC and seeing if they still work.
For instance, I found a couple of Reform pens made in Germany that have come back marvelously, and they are a treat to use.
The main thing though is not my renewed interest in drawing or the associated energy that gets me out of bed in the morning every day with some interesting new development.
Believe me, it’s nice to have something to look forward to in the morning beyond toast and tea.
This change, though, is on a much grander scale. Having come into a new understanding of my being and my powers, and having acknowledged, addressed, and accepted everything I could lay my psychic hands on, I am starting to feel empowered to act from this new understanding of who and what I am.
And, by golly, things that have been ‘same old same old’ for years are starting to shift, and in my direction! I’ve learned where the ‘Tilt’ button is on the Universal pinball machine.
So this is not just about me having fun drawing again, however wonderful that is.
It is about me having fun consciously deciding to have fun.
