    I’ve spent a career teaching how self-judgment works against us in the creative process. I’ve spent a lifetime dealing with my own harsh self-judgment, so I have the requisite compassion to understand its costs. Once we’ve made it to a place of near completion, there is time is to be discerning, but the process requires license to start out crappy, make mistakes, and tolerate not being able to bring into reality the exact thing we envisioned. We need that freedom for the...

Butterfly Thoughts

Ooohhhh..... thank you. Thank you THANK YOU!!! I’m so happy to hear your voice again. Listening to Butterfly Thoughts I was transported into whimsy and wonder and even though it was only 5 minutes in length it removed hours of “the collective stressors” our nation is undergoing. I want to listen to the next episode but have decided to savor the levity of this one. I look forward to tomorrow. Would these be appropriate to share with my middle schoolers to begin art class with? I love you Jill. I miss you - I think maybe I miss you more now but that’s alright. I forgive you. ☺️😎🤓❤️😍
