365 Days, Day 364

The experiences you draw to you, through the opening in the doorway of your soul... stay open... only as long as you do... (Marlise Karlin)

You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening the door to your own life is, in the end, more difficult than opening the doors to the mysteries of the universe (Daisaku Ikeda)

Just over a year of my life is represented in these blogs. I think it will be interesting to look back: perhaps in the form of a book. But I also look forward to new doorways that have yet to be opened.

I would really love some feedback from you to add to the blog/book on what you have thought of this blog. Every creative person needs positive encouragement: so many of us never quite believe we are good enough – ever in pursuit of perfection. At my advanced age I am still finding myself, or re-discovering myself in my Autumn Years.

My journey continues. One more blog to go on this 365 Day challenge…


  1. Deidre
    Thanks for your blog over that past year. It has been fantastic for us to keep track with what has been happening in your life while you have been so far away. I think i have been 'closer' to you the last 363 days than when we were children. Unfortunately it's been very one sided. I admire you courage to expose your soul on these blog posts, it must be very difficult to do. I know there is a lot of pressure to do this daily, but it would be great to hear from you from time to time.

    Love you

  2. What can I say about this mammoth achievement. Despite my protestations I fear that this blog will now come to an end and we will all be deprived of our daily dose of insightful insights :-)

    Nevertheless a great body of work, and I am hopeful that I can persuade you to compile all these posts into one document
