IFJM 19: Montpellier, Closer to the Camino

April 19

W15 4 19 IFJM 002“The only valuable thing is intuition.”  Einstein

W15 4 19 IFJM 004From my journal, our vision, as this journal is writing/painting us into our new life:
“Our dream is to finish the book together within twelve months.
On Sundays after yoga or a walk or lovemaking we will continue the writing process in coffee shops or tea rooms or around our Monterey table in our studio.
We will be supported financially toward our goal . . .
stealing some evenings and an occasional whole weekend at the ocean,
the year will culminate in 4-8 weeks off in December where we have prepped
to drop in and sprint to the creative finish line.  This will be a joyous experience!
Final edits will occur before this time next year.
We see each other in good health and excellent shape,
feeling joyful enthusiasm for our lives and our work.
This will be the first of many books together. 

This or something better for the good of all concerned.
So be it!”

W15 4 19 IFJM 010W15 4 19 IFJM 012From my journal:  “Isabelle drove down to meet us at Broc’ Cafe.  We met her through Dr. Chen, our Chinese doc.  Her acupuncture practice is thriving, and she’s taken up watercolors.  Her paintings are amazing . . . intuitive talent!  She tipped us toward places where the Camino would cross populated areas — or close enough — where we might meet up with travelers.  (Saying that word makes me think of Lord of the Rings or Deep Space w/ Star Trek.)  BTW, enjoying playing with the pencil from the hotel. . . It is softer that what I brought.”

    I know it’s the same message, but every now and then I just need to say that your journals are beautiful. I hope you have a great week Kate.

    Catching up on your lovely travels and not surprised to see you’ve turned this into great plans for the year😉. I never tire of admiring your ability to show the dimension of scenes in your illustrations. Your years of study and practice are paying off in more ways than you might appreciate!

    Ahh finally time to catch up on what I’ve missed. Such great plans – lovemaking in Sundays is always memorable.


I love hearing from visitors!
