Episode 384 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast — books I am reading right now, reaching out during times of social distancing and shelter-in-place orders, and drawing daily
In this episode of the CMP, books I am reading… including Dreamers (which is about a virus) and similar books I have enjoyed in the past. Thoughts on reaching out and checking in with others — being genuine and real. Plus, despite the shelter-in-place where I am, we had to drive up and clear out the dorm (within a rapid 72-hour window). That put us right in the path of a Sonic and a Rt. 44 Coke Zero with Diet Cherry… an order (or a few) of chili tater tots… and a Facetime with Mom/Grandma.
Also in this episode, other bits and pieces… including drawing together in the CMP group (#drawwithme), drawing portraits, the need to move (get out and walk), and more.
Take care of yourself. Check on someone…. and in your groups…. check in.

A note about Trello: I’m feeling really productive with my reading and my “To Read” list this year using Trello. I use Trello for other things, including tracking my 50 Before 50 list, but I am finding new book lover’s peace this year with Trello boards set up to help me keep track of books I want to read, Kindle books I snag on a deal, books I hear about in groups or on other podcasts, and then the books I actually am reading or listening to. If you haven’t tried Trello, you should! (It’s free!)
