wonder: creativity & the intention to play

notations for the summer camp version of “Hopscotch Chronicles”

  • Will you believe that you are who {you} say you are?
  • Will you set aside time to listen to your own inner promptings?
  • Will you allow a daily intention to play?

These prompts are starting points for “Hopscotch Chronicles.”


The first step of the intention to play [ease; sensory; just for fun; become unfettered] is to emerge: to move out of and away from “the reasons” you run as fast as you can through your life and/or repeatedly dance with angst, guilt and regret.

Begin your emergence gently with grace and self-compassion.

The intentional practice of anything increases one’s ability to concentrate + focus for increasingly longer time periods. And doing so with other like-minded women increases your ability [and resolve] to normalize this process: To be more at ease with living your intention to play.

  • Perhaps you simply need to decide what you want and do more of that.
  • Perhaps you simply need to remember how to have fun with new experiences.

It is as if there are external equivalents for truths which I already in some mysterious way know. -Anne Truitt, Daybook

The discipline for a daily practice is not shoulding yourself or striving futilely to meet expectations. It is as simple as remembering who you are — who you want to be and do.

Then setting aside time for that — baby steps [minutes] count. Everything counts, Braveheart.

  • What do you want?
  • What do you need to do to have it?
  • How can you begin to make space for it?

Are you willing to practice {try, fail, learn, repeat} to accomplish what do you want?

Your life is your truest and most meaningful work, Braveheart.

Braveheart, I believe art heals — and that art is as simple as abiding outdoors with the morning sky or jotting lists or having a favorite color. I created Right Brain Planner™ because I needed a "planner" that offered space but didn't trigger my daily expectations. I needed a planner that was a journal — a place to creatively document my {living} + collect my blurts and random collage. Perhaps you are in need of the same? If so, I hope you will join me via our shared online connections. ♥
