Creative Date for June

Julia Cameron in The Artists Way suggested the idea of making time for a regular creative date.   This idea is also picked up by Matt Tommey in Unlocking the Heart of the Artist.   You can also find inspiration here: 101 Artist's Date Ideas.

I am suggesting that we should each make time for a creative date each month.  Ideally we will go out.  Go to a local museum, a local art gallery, go for a walk!  Whatever idea you have that will feed your creativity.

However sometimes it's not possible to physically visit those places.  So here's my idea for June. A music trail.  Click on this video link and watch the video on YouTube.

Then click on one of the video links on the right hand side of the YouTube screen.  When you've watched that video, click another one of the video links on the right hand side of that YouTube screen.  Keep repeating this for as long as you wish.  Make a list of the links to the videos you went to and share them with the rest of us.

Of course surfing YouTube videos can use up time like nothing else can.  So you may want to set yourself a time limit - say an hour - or a number limit of videos - say 6.  Choose what suits you best and 
have fun!
