Continuing the Artist Way In Nanaimo for 30 Days Theme One: Entering the Imagic Nation


If you’ve read any other previous postings on this blog you already know that I’m getting ready to head south for the winter to San Miquel de Allende, Mexico come November when the gray, rain laden clouds start moving in for their long monthly stays That’s why this area in mid Vancouver Island is so very green even in the dry season.

But I digreass.  This is Posting/Mile Zero on the upcoming 30 Day Morning Pages and Miracles Challenge. At 7;29 p.m. PSDT the fall eqiinox started in this part of the world. Slowly, ever so slowly we will be losing mintes of daylight and gaining minutes of night time enroute to the winer solstice round about December 21rst.

Tomorrow, eight enthusiastic writers will convene to step on the Magic Carpet ride of a 30 Day Challenge to write three pages of morning pages every single day for 30 days. Day One is Tuesday, September 23rd. Day Thirty is October 22nd which is actually a Wednesday. The first four sessions will be held ON site at Nanaimo Unity Church on East Wellington Road. The fifth and final session will be OFF site at The Buzz Coffee Place nearby just off Bowen Road.  Tanya, who has graciously agreed to cofacilitate and be the time keeper keeping us on time and I talked to the owner of The Buzz and we will get to use the lovely light filled back board room for the mere cost of us getting drinks and snacks from them.

Very fair. At that time, there will also be an opportuntity to connect with online participants from outside Nanaimo via Google Hangout which I only recently learned out to do. Free video chat anywhere in North America for up to 12 participants. Currently, we have a possible writer from the Phillipines and a writing professor from t he University of Kentucky.

Isn’t technology grand?

Do check in tomorrow on DAY ONE to see what we are really up to!






About canmexartistway

I am a happily retired teacher/expat to be now relocated to the spectacularly beautiful Harbour City of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. During snowbird six I decided to morph from snowbird to Mexpat! I'm taking the 'scenic route' geographically and metaphorically during the next 5 to 6 months as I downsize, downsize, downsize in preparation for an international move in the fall.
