Finding Water Quotes by Julia Cameron

https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/124871-finding-water-the-art-of-perseverance

Imho, this is Julia’s most person book in the trilogy. At the time of the writing of this book she thought she was sliding into another serious  depressive episode and as a recovering alcoholic she used her one day at a time 12 Step background and experience to keep moving forward even when things were not going particularly smoothly for her and she was starting to focus on unfinished or unpublished work, unproduced plays oe other artistic disappointments rather than celebrating her many artistic successes.  What she tells us she is also telling herself over and over again.

Just show up to the page, to the easel, to the stage, to the camera, to the piano or whatever your form of artistic expression resonates the most. Begin…and continue…and begin again…

And move forward she does even if it is the smallest ofbaby steps and we can, to!
